Molly got a cookbook for Christmas. Our goal is to make a recipe a week. Today was French Onion Soup and it was the best French Onion Soup that I have EVER tasted. I think we have another cook in the family.
I swear I did not set this shot up. I just looked over and noticed that the Jesus card was stuck behind baby Jesus. The card is from Auntie Kay and Uncle Michael. The baby Jesus was bought in Munich because he reminds me of my Mom's Nativity Set.
Christmas cards are starting to arrive! The mouse dates back to when Molly was just starting to hear and was completely obsessed with anytoy that sang or talked. He sings 'We Wish You a Merry Christmas' when you press his toe. Over and over.
I bought Robert a new Santa to put on his trolley. Some low-life stole the last one. Hopefully the new one is just too ugly for anyone to want to steal. Plus Mandy is really tying it down. I think it would take a lot of effort to knick.
OMG. I was woken up at 5:00 am by a beeping noise. I searched and searched for it. Eventually, I narrowed it down to the bathroom and STILL couldn't find. When James woke up at 7:00 I offered to pay him a fiver if he could find it and disable it. He found it in five minutes. It was an old watch that came from a French market about ten years ago and cost about three pounds. It was in a jewellry box on the bathroom shelf. He couldn't make it stop beeping though. Intead he managed to make it start talking as well! In FRENCH. I threw it away but could still hear it. It was still going strong when I got home so I took the hammer to it. That worked.
I found The Grinch at the charity shop for 99p! How cool is that? And in case anyone is wondering, this should be taken to represent the original Boris Karloff cartoon Grinch. Not that effing Jim Carrey monstrosity.
I cleaned out my kitchen cupboards today. The winner of the oldest food product is Tobasco Sauce. Best before September 2002. People who know me will know that 2002 is the year I went back to work. Which is when I stopped using ingredients like Tobasco sauce and stopped knowing what was lurking in the back of my cupboards. It's bad, I know.
