On the 23rd day of Christmas…

23 December

This is definitely the best time of years for snuggling up for a cuddle, as this gorgeous illustration by Emmeline Pidgen demonstrates perfectly.

Poor Emmeline had some of her Christmas shopping stolen yesterday – ‘I’m trying to get back in the Christmas-sy mood’, she explains – and we hope the thief (or thieves) wake up to a big fat lump of coal in their stocking.

Says Emmeline: ‘A classic Pidgen family Christmas isn’t complete without a whole lot of boardgame playing.Β  Monopoly, cards, Yahtzee…and you can be guaranteed my usually oh-so-lovely Granny will reveal her competitive side and win every singleΒ game hands down!’

UPDATE: we’ve just heard from Emmeline that her shopping has been returned to her – hurrah! It’s a Christmas miracle.
