We made this at the weekend, and it's an absolutely brilliant way of doing some really easy, festive 'baking' (there's no baking involved really) with kids.
It's festive Christmas Chocolate Bark. Basically a mix of chocolate, melted, poured out and sprinkled with toppings of choice. And it's really rather good. I'd go as far as to say that Father Christmas might like a side of this with his mince pie.
So, for the past week or so I have been really quite poorly with a chest infection. I don't know what is up with my immune system recently, but I seem to have everything going at the moment. So, when the weekend rolled around, I was feeling pretty relieved because I had my right-hand man back, in the form of Mark, for two whole days. And I hoped I'd be able to rest a bit.

I have wanted to write so many posts about our experience having a Stickler, cleft palate, Pierre Robin, NICU baby. But every time I start I get this weird sensation come over me and I begin to get writer's block and I mentally dig my heels in and then I shut my MacBook and push it away from me.

1) Even though your Christmas tree was practically collapsing last year, under the weight of the hundreds of decorations you already own, suddenly you need LOTS MORE.
2) Having a theme for your Christmas gift-wrapping is definitely a thing.
3) But the thought of writing Christmas cards feels like homework.
