as you know, it’s obligatory to wear christmas presents which are capable of being worn on the day you receive them. i got this brilliant photographers access-all areas tabard (just put it on and no one asks you any questions – ideal for invisible photography work in busy places)
and kezia’s new dressing grown made her look like santa doing a repeat visit to the tree
jane’s dad caused laughing mayhem by saying the christmas cake had icing and christmas ‘knickerations’. he probably didn’t actually say that, but jane repeated it and tears of laughter ensured.
when we finally saw it, we were very impressed by the kickerations, although there was some tree subsidance

We’ve made some ‘treat vouchers’ for our girls for christmas, and it struck me these are a brilliant last minute or additional christmas present for a friend or family member. Best of all, they are individual and needn’t cost you any real money if you don’t want !
essentially you print off the voucher, cut them out and staple to produce a cheque book of lovely treats, such as:
- A trip to the fun park
- A day out with just mummy or daddy (your choice)
- A free room tidy
- Stay up 30 minutes late
- Use mummy’s nail varnish
- Trip to feed the ducks
- Free bag of sweets from the supermarket
- Cook dinner for a week
There are 5 on a sheet – we’ve made cheque books of 10 vouchers, so that’s 2 pages (for those who are mathematically challenged)
Let me know how you get on and the kinds of things you put on the treat vouchers.
UPDATE: just to let you know, jane says it was her bestest friend julie who gave her the idea of the vouchers, so credit to her excellent self is due. And the vouchers themselves went down a treat and esther says they are amongst her best present ! huzzah.
