“The love of a family is the greatest gift.”

Firstly, it’s not only Christmas Day but also my wonderful Dad’s Birthday – so a huge Happy Birthday to him! Christmas day was beautiful, crisp, cold with a little bit of sunshine and the hint of snow perhaps tomorrow although we don’t quite believe that! The presents…well, where do I start? They were incredible. Huge amounts of genorosity all around with some amazing gifts – too many to start naming them all but I’m sure many will feature in future blog entries! Family time is so precious, and I loved every second (apart from the times when my back was hurting so much I couldn’t concentrate!) Falling down the stairs before Christmas is -not- the done thing. The food, the decorations, the company, the time…everything was spot on and just reminded me how much I love life and how lucky I am. Now we can all relax, chillout and enjoy each other’s company and the new bits and pieces we’ve been given… of which there are many!2 3 5 6 11 17 30

“The month of December isn’t magical because it sparkles. It’s magical because it changes people’s hearts … at least momentarily.”
― Toni Sorenson

Today has been testing my patience a little bit – with much to do I ended up falling down the stairs (due to rushing around) and now can’t do very much without pain! However, I did manage to pick the post up and it was such a good job that I did because the most awesome package was waiting for me… Sylwia Telari volunteers on DeviantART (a bit like I do but in the Traditional Art galleries) – she has sent me some home-made things that are just beautiful and fit the remit of the keywords that we had to give for our secret santa gifts (Owls and books!)

Sylwia is an illustrator and a writer, and that absolutely shone through in all of my gifts – a beautiful book, an amazing illustration, a gorgeous bookmark and postcard. Thank you! <3
