My nephews are thugs.  
Busy day! I got up at *shudder* 6:15 and got on a train to Dublin, where I delivered and collected presents, wrote a limerick for Breic, took pictures of the boys, several of which will be on kitsnaps (kitsnaps for the feed) over the next few days. Breic read me a couple of stories, Seirid snuck in and out being ridiculously cute, Deirdre confessed she'd never made fudge*, and we generally hung around and had a pleasant time for a few hours. Mom and I went out to lunch, and then I went to find Ted a couple more presents which, god damn it, I just realized I left on the train. I hope somebody picked it up and brought it in to lost and found. God damn it. Anyway, and I took Dublin photos, and eventually got on the train and came home to a roast chicken dinner that my wonderful husband had made for me. Been a pretty good day, I must say. :)

My nephews are thugs:

Straight out of the Coombe, said their mother. :)

*I made fudge for the first time when I was about 14. Maybe 15, but I think I was 14, shortly after we moved into Kenai. It turned out very very well. Mom said, "Well, hell, I'm never bothering to do *this* again!" and I made a lot of the fudge in the coming years. Mom did too, but I think I probably made more, at least til I went to college. Deirdre never had much reason to. Still, shocking, I tell you! Shocking!

Don't think of it as having to wait all the way until March! Think of it as having to *only* wait til March! Given that normally it'd be a year, this is a win! :)

i'm glad you liked the book. :) :) :)

I like your fudge! It was soooo tasty the time you sent me some. Actually, I wonder where that recipe went. Awesome fudge.

Looks like a couple of "Yeah, we did something but not what you're going to accuse us of doing so Nyah."

We'll be making candy canes and ribbon candy today.

Oooh. If you wanted to give me a recipe for candy canes, I would be very excited! *hopeful eyes*!
