This is the first in a series I am planning for December this year. These are photo posts and might just bore the pants off you so feel free to skip them, unless you are my sister (and you are a long way away this Christmas and we miss you), or you are Rachael and you wonder what it looks like here at this time of year.
In brief, it looks wet. This year it is raining almost every day in December. I don’t know what the other mothers are doing around here but I have given up. Play in the rain, I tell the kids. They get wet and slippery and eventually cold too, but this is better than crazy-bored. I can’t keep up with the washing so I have cut out the middleman and they now spend a lot of time naked and playing outside in the rain.
We didn’t quite beat the storm on this particular walk and had to make a hasty retreat back to the car. It was a beautiful storm and many of the roads we drove through were flooded on our way home, including our own street.
What happens when you get an artist to make your pizza: goddamn craft pizza.
(If you have the inclination then I would like to see what this time of year looks like in your part of the world too. Please link in the comments below).
