Croc On A Rock (Day 24) Christmas Eve!

The presents are wrapped, the cards have been sent and the turkey is defrosting in the sink. You can finally sit down for a minute and have a glass of Bucks Fizz and relish in it being Christmas Eve. The past month has been nothing but a crazy build up of panic present buying, decorating the house by shoving tinsel on everything everywhere and shoving more food than your stomach can handle into your gob.

WOW How did we get here so fast? It only feels like the other day the Crocodile had stumbled into our home and was causing mischief. And now it’s Christmas Eve!

Today has been a day of watching films, baking the chocolate Christmas cake and being snuggled up on the sofa with candles lit. Bliss! Bring on the madness of tomorrow!!! WOOOO Santa’s coming!!!!!

Croc On A Rock (Day 23) WHO STOLE MY GINGERBREAD!

THIEF! THIEF There has been a theft in the burrow! Someone has stolen the last of the Christmas Crocodile’s gingerbread! There’s only one suspect and he is not too happy about being accused.

It was Venom! Bad Venom! But in his defence he couldn’t resit the sweet cinnamon teats. And Crocodile is an extremely good baker. He’s even thinking of starting his own baking show, Bake With Croc!

Croc On A Rock (Day 22) DRUMS!!!!

LOUD NOISES! You get used to it when you marry a drummer. I am lucky that I actually really like the noise and could listen to it all day. That and I have a trusty pair of ear plugs, (thank you hubby) a must if you don’t want to go deaf and get tinnitus. Ears are important and can’t look after themselves now can they? Wouldn’t it be really creepy if they could? Like do things on their own? ….

Today the Christmas Crocodile decided to have a go at drumming. I believe the spirit of Animal was with him today as he did a ton of crazy drum solos. His favourite drums are the toms, he likes the booming sound they make. Dramatic and fierce like a crocodile. His words not mine. There are now talks of him setting up a band with Pucho the sea panda and Maggie the sea cow.

Believe it or not drumming is harder than it looks. A lot of people tend to think it’s very easy and you just hit drums with wooden sticks, when in fact it’s a hell of a lot more. It takes talent to drum. Anyone can sit behind a drum kit and bash the cymbals about, but to keep a rhythm and be creative takes a lot more.

My husband has taught me a few things about drums but I have no rhythm whatsoever. I get easily distracted or start over thinking too much. I think my instrument of choice would be the piano. Imagine if you could just sit down in front of any musical instrument and play it to perfection. How musically creative the world would be. Music is everything, much like reading and writing. It is an art that takes patience and practice to craft into a masterpiece. Ooooooh maybe I should learn the ukulele?! I do have a PURPLE one that I have been meaning to learn. Could be one of my goals for next year. Arghh I digress.

Croc On A Rock (Day 21) Gingerbread Crocodile!

Don’t you just love Christmas and all the joy it brings? For example shall we say the gorgeous food! NOMNOMNOM! Rich, warm, delicious food that makes you feel all cosy and…I’m sorry I appear to be drooling. Oops. Just thinking about all that food is making me hungry. Excuse me while I go grab a mince-pie.

I’m back! Where was I? Oh yes, right.

Today the Christmas Crocodile had a lovely surprise for us. He wanted to make gingerbread with the boys as his way of apologising for his naughty behaviour lately. We told him we understood why he had been acting out and thank you for the heart warming gesture. He of course did have every intention of gobbling the whole batch but held himself back and only had a cheeky nibble. We made all sorts of shapes, bunnies, hearts, stars, batman logo, gingerbread man and of course crocodiles! The boys love baking and really enjoyed getting stuck in. Crocodile at one point thought it would be a good idea to try swimming through the dough pretending it was quicksand and he was being sucked in. It only made him messy and in need of a bubble bath which he thoroughly enjoyed.

I do love the smell of gingerbread and cinnamon. It’s such a christmassy smell with happy and fond memories attached to it. Our gingerbread turned out wonderful and has filled the house with that intoxicating scent. LOVE! hehe cheesy I know.

Croc On A Rock (Day20) Snowflake Madness!

They say that every single snowflake is different and unique in their own way. No two snowflakes are alike. Each one has its own beautiful design. Just fascinating.

As I opened the door this morning to make my normal MUCH NEEDED cup of coffee, I was hit by a snowstorm of beauty. Quite literally hit in the face by a dozen paper snowflakes. It would seem that the Christmas Crocodile wanted to do a spot of decorating and so took it upon himself to make some snowflakes to stick onto the windows. Not ideally how I wanted to spend my morning; cleaning up tiny paper cutoffs, but the boys loved it so I did what I do best. Smiled, ignored the mess (until I have at least had some caffeine!) and rolled with it.

Later in the day when Cabbit came home from nursery, he helped the Christmas crocodile make some, much to my delight. Yay more cleaning! Just what I wanted on a Wednesday afternoon. But much fun was had. The Christmas Crocodile wants to see a real snowflake and hopes for snow to come again. He has been researching up snow dances on the internet. He insists that I still buy him a tutu as it will complete his look. We shall see, we shall see.

Croc On A Rock (Day 19) GO KARTING Crocodile

BRUMMMMMMMMMM!

Start your engines dear readers and buckle up for the ride of your life on the crazy race track of life! Yes, bad I know. Apologies! Muhahahahahaha!

It would seem the Christmas Crocodile has acquired a taste for racing as today he has done nothing but race around the house causing havoc. We discovered him today in the midst of a race with Yoshi, Gizmo and Baymax. The Crocodile was close to winning but we have a feeling foul play was at hand. He is a naughty crocodile after all. We think he has gotten over his heartache and is now jumping back behind the wheel to jumpstart his life.

Croc On A Rock (Day 18) Fairy Crocodile

Oh what a beautiful morning! Oh what a beautiful dayyyyyy! Just look at this picturesque scene that we awoke to this morning. I feel so extremely lucky to live in such a gorgeous part of the world. Be-a-utiful.

We found the Christmas Crocodile dancing to the sugar-plum fairy on-top of the Christmas tree today. It didn’t take us long to discover the fairy had been deposed of her throne and relegated to further down the tree. We told him off and said it was a nasty thing to do. He just did a maniacal laugh and carried on dancing. He requested a tutu to be made for him which was denied because of his bad behaviour.

I am the new QUEEN! Fairy, I mean Fairy…

Nooooooooooooooooooo!

Muhahahahahahaha!

 

We are hoping it’s just him acting out from a broken heart. He is now sulking in the kitchen while making his way through a multipack of mince pies. Oh dear.
