The Weeks That Were… #203

December 21st, 2014 · 6 Comments

When the weeks between “Week that Was Posts” quietly become a month or two… Then you know it is time to take a snapshot in time and pop one up… before we forget the fun times we have had and wonder “how did the time fly?”

Through piles of Christmas Books… and of course we are reading through the Christmas Carol… and our family read that is keeping us glued to the breakfast, lunch and supper table… because this has been the year of war stories and so of course, Michael Morpurgo.
