2013 week 51

The week before Christmas is obviously taken up with wrapping presents and writing cards. It is inevitable that there is a breakage along the way! Sorry Alexei’s godmother. Oops. Hope the others got to their destination safely! I also had an opportunity to take some photos of my husband posing for a book he has […]

2013 Week 50

Obviously this time of year is busy with Christmas activities for the children, and this week started with Alexei and his infant school mates performing their nativity show.

And Christmas […]
