Yesterday happy happy thing. My mum did not go to work. She said in the year she has to take a two week block of holiday on account of working in finance. So her bosses say that she must spend two whole weeks at our beck and call. Fantastic!
Only mum said that she has a project for every day. That's fine, I like to help with projects. Yesterday's was making Christmas ards. Turns out that I am an excellent Christmas Card Making Helper. I was picking out things that my mum should use (there were little bows and stickers and sparkly things) and stirring the glitter and quality checking. Only mum kept taking my things off me and moving the glitter and she put all the finished cards on a high shelf.
This was tiring work and I had to sleep all afternoon. Luckily Josie was ready and willing to take over.
Mum said she will be making special cards for Josie and me to send to our special friends. She knows what they will look like - she just needs a nice photo of the two of us together. You have to love her optimism.
I wonder what today's project will be. I better have a little nap to build up my energy for helping.

I would love to have my mum at home for two whole weeks. Not going to happen anytime soon. I'll be lucky if she's home for two whole days between now Christmas. Enjoy it while it lasts mate as the time will be gone way too quickly.
Do your mum a favor and play nicely and let her get a picture of you and Josie together. tell it her Christmas present from the both of you. She'll love it. I have to admit I don't like having my photo taken either.
