The boys have an unexpected day off school. You might think a lie-in would be in order but no, up at seven in the usual fashion. It's still dark at seven in the morning. But the darkness meant we could turn on the sparkly Christmas lights on the tree and those along the dining room window. And the early hour meant we could bake bread, colour and read all before sunrise. There's a lot to be said for an early start to the day, especially as we inch towards the shortest day when our daylight is so precious. And today we have the additional treat of a trip to the cinema to see Free Birds because everyone needs to see a movie about time travelling turkeys at Christmas...
