Today is one of my favourite days of the year - Winter Solstice. After today, despite the evidence of my eyes at first, I'll know that the days are getting longer and the sun is returning.

It's actually not been too bad this year despite the snow. The sausage made the part of Donkey his own in the nursery Christmas concert. v v v v cute. I was shocked to see a full on nativity play when I got there; I'd be amazed if more than 25% of the parents whose kids go there call themselves Christian and even fewer who go to church. One of the reasons I chose the nursery was that it was so multicultural. Oh well, hopefully the saus will stop spouting about the BABYJESUS soon.

The big debate is whether to go along with Father Christmas. I think not. I can't maintain even the most basic lie for whole minutes, let alone years and years. Plus, some of my friends whose kids are 8 to 11 are getting caught up in betrayed kids telling them that they can't believe they lied to them about it!! Any magic about a jolly bloke climbing through our window at night would soon wear off when the offspring sees Stan blundering about in the dark with a pillowcase.

Happy Yule, everyone :)
