Sorry to start the week on a downer, but I wanted to know whether people had talked to their kids about the shootings in Connecticut, or not

After a long hiatus due to a broken camera and work-related insanity I finally come back with a lacklustre review of a very nice restaurant.

In which I regain my baking mojo and ice the Christmas cake and get to review From Alsace to Yorkshire which has a great recipe for Brioche in it .

We have only just discovered Sandra Boynton's great books for really little people. Our favourites are on storysnug.com/2012/12/pajama-time/

I would love to know which ones you would recommend smile

Another Christmas craft post. This time Jackson Pollockesque Christmas cards with the children.

Does anyone else have children who just have to Go First?

Today I compare and contrast mine and Z1's results when we made Christmas tree cards with pipe cleaners - find out who comes out better here

This is the year I channel my inner Kirsty and Phil and have a Perfect Christmas type thang.
Oh hang on, wait...

Wow, love your Megan Fox response, SGM, am gobsmacked by that deeply unpleasant piece in the Independent!

Has anyone ever been to the Museum of Broken Relationships ?
It looks bitter-sweet and contains loads of ideas for writerly types.

Has anyone else got Christmas Fever?
