We had a little visitor arrive this December. She turned up unexpectedly on December 1st in her little box and a book explaining everything about her. Quickly Pinky chose her name: Sparkle Heart (obviously!). Miss Sparkle Heart found her way to the bookshelf very quickly where she was very comfortable for her first day, with a good view of the girls and their playing.
The second day she arrived back in the house with some North Pole snow, Pinky had requested some the day before and Sparkle willingly obliged. This snow was magic and it didn’t melt! How cool is that?
The third day Sparkle bought a north pole breakfast with her. Pancakes, pain au chocolat, crumpets, maple syrup and sugar! There was far too much sugar on the table for my liking but fortunately the girls were spending the day with their grandparents so I wasn’t too worried.
Day four and we adults found ourselves a little ‘tired’ after a childfree night. We may or may not have found ourselves drinking cocktails in London… I refuse to confirm the rumours *cough*. So luckily I persuaded Sprinkle Heart to put on Paw Patrol for the girls, it was too cold to go outside anyway. *cough*
We awoke to Sparkle Heart reading to some of the toys on Day 5. It was very sweet and they all seemed to be enjoying ‘The Night Before Christmas’. That girls head really freaks me out… I am forever catching sight of it in my peripheral vision and thinking someone is stood watching me… I must find a box to hide it in!
The sixth day Sparkle bought with her some figurines to paint. A little cat and a dog. Pinky chose the cat so Perky had the dog (this is not a problem she prefers dogs anyway). Apart from me having a bad day this brightened it up a little. Well that is until the fights over who the paint pots were closest to! Honestly, some days I wonder why I bother! It may also be best to skirt over the fact that Perky tried to eat the paint. Twice!
Day 7 and Sparkle seems to be having a Celebrations HotTub. This was actually very well timed. The girls are both a little poorly and we are all very tired so I set up a little resting area in the lounge and put on Christmas films. We ate the chocolates and popcorn and completely chilled out! It was the perfect Hump Day.
Tune in next week for the next instalment!
