So that was Christmas...

by - Friday, December 27, 2013

It's incredibly blustery and cold out there today and I'm curled up on the sofa, still in my jammies and I don't intend on moving 'til tomorrow! I've realised this is a luxury that I actually only allow myself once a year, always around Christmas. Words can't even describe how wonderful it feels to put your (fluffy slipper-clad) feet up after spending the previous day cooking for 12 (for the first ever time) then hosting for 14.

The best bit? I've finally got a little bit of 'me' time to watch the Christmas films I hadn't had time to before the day, paint my nails and just enjoy the soft echo of the last few days that is drifting round my home.

It's my favourite thing to have all my loved ones around me, but I also hadn't realised how much I'd like this moment, right now. P has gone out so it's just me, with the sound of the wind blowing through the trees, the clocks calmly ticking, and the tree lights gently twinkling and dancing, as if representing the fabulous few days we've just had.

All is calm in my home right now; a rare occurrence but one that, as I get older, I'm finding is essential to good peace of mind. 

So I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Delightful New Year, I hope you find all the peace and happiness you deserve.

Much love,
