    Happy New Year!

    This year did something a bit different for New Year!  Firstly, I took the kids shopping and they got to pick out brand-new pyjamas.   Then, together we decorated the activity envelopes for the night.  In each one I put a different activity that we would do at the allocated time.  To make sure we didn’t…
