How on earth is it the 19th December already? Team Pugh have all pretty much reached our elastic limit and are ready for Christmas and a bit of a rest. Luckily today’s activity was a) very tasty and b) very easy. Today our activity was to make mulled apple juice and drink it by the fire. We know wine would have been nice but we wanted Lizzie to be a part of the activity so it was apple juice all the way. But……. not just any old apple juice……..our homemade juice from our freezer stockpile. So we warmed up a pan of this lovely juice added a teaspoon of sugar, some orange slices, a stick of cinnamon and a few cloves and heated gently for a few minutes. Delicious! We added water to Lizzie’s but even so she was DELIGHTED at being allowed to drink ‘duuuuceee’ by the fire from a cup.
Our kindness for the day was for Ian and Becksie to do something nice for Lizzie. So…….. as a treat Lizzie was allowed to open a present early……… she was very very pleased and gave both Ian and Becksie and big hug and repeatedly said ‘tar’ and signed thank you. As you can imagine this warmed our hearts. As an extra kindness we didn’t make her put away at least 5 toys (as is our rule) and she was allowed to go to bed without doing this (extremely hard for a small person) task.
We hope you are all getting excited about Christmas now especially if tomorrow is your last day at work (school etc etc). Happy holidays folks!
