So Christmas was an age ago, but it’s fair to say we’ve only just started to recover. Between weddings, bouts of pneumonia and a new job for husband, things have been busy here at No 9, however we are finally getting back on top of life. (Well, apart from still having to take the Christmas tree down, but these things can’t be rushed.)

In between biblical-proportioned plagues we had lots of yuletide highlights, with one of our favourites being our new nativity scene. I reckon this slice of multicultural merriment, found by husband for £5 at The Distinguished, says more about the spirit of Christmas than my old little wooden sheep ever did.
