Who said bad luck comes in threes?

1.  Pranging the neighbour’s bumper with our car……………………………..£180

2.  Dropping a new bottle of the dog’s insulin……………………………………£ 30

3.  The plastic housing coming off the water pump on the car…………….£230

4.  Dropping my phone and smashing the screen………………………………£ 70

5.  Add to that an expensive year anyway (unexpected trip to Kenya

for Lily for her Grandfather’s funeral, a school trip to Barcelona, etc, etc)

………………………………………………..EQUALS……………………………………..£0 left for Christmas.  Oh well.  It’s just as well that I had already decided that we would be focusing on the real meaning of Christmas this year anyway!

Last night for FHE we watched this video.  It is a really beautifully made version of the nativity story.  We also started a scripture paper chain and are planning to read from these each night.

This is what it’s really all about. This is so beautiful.
