It’s almost December and after trying my best over the last two months to ignore the Christmas jingles on the radio and festive paraphernalia lurking at every turn in the supermarket I have decided to embrace the season.

We have been having plenty of ice cream weather this month, and what better time of the year to enjoy some delicious home made ice cream sandwiches.

It has been an absolute joy to enjoy newborn cuddles, watch the beginnings of sibling bonding and see good friends arriving at the door with a meal in their hands (a definite highlight)! Unfortunately though, we have also had to contend with an awful bug that has been hanging around us for weeks, on top of the expected sleep deprivation and exhaustion (what day is it?). Yet here we are, 6 weeks later and I can happily report that we are all adjusting and starting to settle into our new “normal”.
