Yesterday was my daughter’s Class Winter (holiday, festive, Christmas – lets as appropriate) party.  As ‘Class Mom’ I get the dubious privilege of organising said event, cajoling the other parents into donating time or crafts or food. So we had Stick the nose on the Reindeer, decorating gingerbread biscuits, making toilet roll reindeers and a Santa snakes and ladders game that I whipped up on the ‘puter.  Kids were on a suitably high sugar rush by the end of it – job done.
