Tonight marked our first official Christmasy thing – well, for Miss Five and I at least, sadly Papa Bear and Mister Four have been struck very ill this past coupla days. And you know what? I know it’s as cheesy as poutine (which, might I add, I’ve vowed never to try: fries are heaven. You don’t mess with heaven. That is all) but the thing is, all the hot chocolating, carolling, horse-carriage riding, even damnwell reindeer patting – and I’m not kidding, those things were REAL!!! – well, a little piece of my heart melted tonight.
Which was a good thing. Cos this is Canada. And it’s freaking cold out there.
