What stands out though, in my head, this week is the fact that my house has suddenly been invaded by glitter. The Farmchildren have brought home a huge amount of stunning Christmas Craft from school/day care and every single piece has been incredibly sparkly.
I present some of their finer work.

|Not Actually Sure What This Is But It Is Very Glittery Too|
As a result of this we have a new decor in The Farmhouse. Every single surface is covered in a fine layer of sparkle. (Particularly the jarrah floorboards). It provides an interesting (but unplanned) festive feel. Likewise all the occupants of The Farmhouse are being seen out and about with a little more shine than you would usually expect. I have decided I have absolutely no choice but to embrace the glitter, both as house and personal adornment. For the simple reason that no matter how hard I try to clean the stuff up, it just reappears.
In other Farm Christmas news, Farmboy has informed me that an excellent source (fellow student) has informed him (Farmboy) that someone else (Santa) informed him (fellow student) that it will snow here on Christmas Day. Despite this extremely reliable prediction I have my doubts. Not least of all because the long range forecast here for Christmas Day is currently fine and hot at 41 degrees celsius. Taking into account this extra meteorological information I think the chance of snow would have to be slim to middling, at best.
Farmgirl has changed her Christmas present request to a fire breathing dragon. She would like to be able to BBQ apparently ( I kid you not). The Farmer and I have refused on the grounds that given the info in the previous paragraph we feel a total fire ban will be declared. Hence it would be very unfair for the dragon.
I hope everyone else has had a lovely week.
