Hello! Just a short post today to wish you a very MERRY CHRISTMAS, wherever you are, however you are celebrating it. Thank you so much for your friendship and support this year. I am already looking forward to sharing 2014 with you and hope that your Christmas is merry and bright and generally full of joy.
We are staying with my parents this year. It's the first time we've been here for Christmas in eight years (John's job always prevented us from travelling far at this time of year) and so it's very special to be here. There are three family birthdays this week, too - both my sisters and my nephew - so the days are busy and full. I am particularly thankful that we are safe and warm and have working power while so many are experiencing travel nightmares, floods and power cuts due to the recent storms. We had a very cold and windy walk this morning then spent this afternoon watching Elf while I frantically crocheted John's scarf - I should just about get it done in time - before going to a beautiful Christingle carol service at church. Now, I'm upstairs writing this and I can hear pans clattering and drinks being poured downstairs. Bella and Angus are excited. I am excited! I love Christmas.
I'm off to watch Carols and Kings now, drink some Pimms and join in with the festivities. Happy Christmas to you all.
