Preparations for a quiet family Christmas here at my home are complete. The tree is up and being guarded by a certain fluffy puss, Midge has decided to curl up and wait for Santa underneath! The cake is iced, mince pies baked, larder and fridge full of wonderful goodies and fit to burst. All gifts and cards have been delivered to friends and family and we have plenty of coal and logs in stock to keep us warm and toasty.
Tomorrow we are off into the village to hear the brass band playing carols and have a sing-along. It's going to be a Christmas card scene if the snow is still lying around and we are all dressed in our scarves, gloves and warm clothes. It's always so magical to see the little ones so excited and singing along with the carols they have learnt in school.
I apologise to you all for the snowy weather here in the UK. I know i wished for it to come for Christmas but i did ask for it to be here Christmas Eve after you had all finished your shopping and were settled inside home for the holidays, i guess i better be careful what i wish for in future.
Wishing each and every one of you a very Happy Christmas with your families, i hope you have a wonderful stress free time and enjoy every minute. To those who have sad anniversaries at this time of year as i do, and to those who have loved ones who will not be with them for whatever reason, my thoughts are with you.
