Today is the last time for nearly 1000 years that the date will look like this! So I thought we would do something simple to mark it. We had a 12.12.12 feast:
twelve candles lit at the table, soup made with twelve ingredients,
bread we baked (oh my has it been a long time since we've baked bread!) made up of 12 little snails of dough in a pan
and of course 12 cakes.
So we are finally itch free. There is still a fair bit of tiredness and a few sore tummies, but Rebe feels well enough to try school tomorrow and so we have shifted back to thinking a little more of the festive season.
Ventry Toy. I think it looks just beautiful as a stable, with the donkey and ox and Mary and Joseph awaiting the birth of their child.
nativity scene in his shop, and if you tell him I sent you he will give you 10% off anything in his shop (over 10euro) just because he really is that nice :-)
Crafting for me has been slow...no make that completely at a halt, so I was delighted to be able to get back to it yesterday, with Benny's help:
Together we managed to get this little angel's hair finished.
