Is it really over..?
The last few days have been the best combination of fun, happiness and laughter- time spent with my most loved ones.
On Christmas Eve, my children and I went out for lunch with my brothers, their wives and children and our parents. After a very busy few months for each of us, it was wonderful to spend time together as a family and to catch up and celebrate our health and happiness which we all consider to be the most important thing.
I wore a dress from last year. Black with matt bronze sequins, it sparkles and shines and I just love the scalloped sleeves and hemline.
The children and I spent a very quiet, relaxing evening together before putting their stockings out and going to bed full of excitement…
…Though not *that* excited it would seem. I was showered, dressed, “coiffured” and had packed the car before they awoke from their teenage slumber.
Christmas morning started off dry which meant we could take a few photographs outside, my son behind the camera on this occasion.
This dress is also from last year and I’m particularly fond of the grey sparkly lace that overlies the navy. I think the rather fabulous hold-ups match perfectly too as do my navy sequinned shoes.
I was so touched by what my children bought for me- the book from my daughter and the candle from my son. Each had ordered their gift independently and wrapped them beautifully and it brought tears to my eyes at the thought they had put in.
We travelled to my parents’ home in Lancashire where we spent Christmas day along with my grandparents and again, it very precious, particularly because my grandparents are 90 and 88 years of age and are not always in good health. My mum did the most wonderful lunch and as many of us will attest, being cooked for is such a treat.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas,
