“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

This year was no exception! We also celebrated my Dad’s birthday (which is tomorrow) a day early so he could enjoy his presents. Particularly as we’ll be busy with these bits…



THEN we had the Christmas Eve boxes…a tradition we started only last year and which involves putting together a box of goodies for each ‘couple’ in the immediate family. Take a look at what we got this year…!

6 4 3To all who celebrate it, Merry Christmas – enjoy the day and the special moments with family, that’s what it’s all about in the end :)
