Yesterday I started reading A Christmas Carol to the boys. I always wanted to do this with the girls but it never seemed to work out. Interestingly, despite the wordy, unfamiliar English of Charles Dickens, the boys are really into it. I'm sure telling them that when Scrooge keeps saying, "Good evening," he really means, "piss off," helped immensely. (You have to say it in your best Cockney accent or its just plain wrong. I'm kind of hanging my head in shame as I admit it.)
Jim's working nights this week so expect my posts to appear at odd times.
