There's a rat in de kitchen.

Now he's in the living room watching Rolf Harris paint a nice Chritsmas Card using custard and a big bag of glitter.
Xmas has been and gone and we wonder what all the fuss is about. Lots of money spent and lots of food consumed and wrapping paper ceremoniously burned in the mexican stove in the back garden. Archie is tuning in his new telescope to look at the chimney pots and Hazel is still under the duvet, curled in a ball.
This collage has been travelling over 6 years and just arrived home on Xmas eve, remarkably unscathed.
It snowed on xmas day much to Archie's delight and he was able to make two snowmen in Granma's garden. Can you smell carrots?
It didn't last very long and turned into slush and icy puddles the next morning. Ever hopeful Archie took his sledge to the local hilly park but the remaining snow was hardly enough to roll a snowball.

We even had snow in Houston on Christmas eve! My friend made a tiny snowman and has it in her freezer as proof.

Yes, how amazing, we read in our national papers that Texas had snow. I was going to ask you if you had any and now you've answered my question!
Archie's snowmen have melted now and all thats left are the sad carrots on Granma's lawn.
