Happy Sunday little bloggies. Here we are then, at the beginning of December. Ho Ho Ho!!
I might just go a little crazy over the next few weeks. Why?! I just love Christmas... chestnuts roasting in an open fire and all that! I love all the pretty lights everywhere and I love that everyone seems so much happier at this time of the year (well, MOST people anyway!).
We put our Christmas decorations up on Friday, so all is well in "thisisme's" household. Oh, did I mention that I don't do 'minimal'?! Not at this time of the year anyway. Now I realize that there may be people out there who are saying 'Bah Humbug', but please bear with me and let me have my little moment!
I realize, of course, that there are people out there that are struggling with all sorts of things at the moment. Emotional relationships, money worries, health problems, losing loved ones etc. In our little home, we have had our fair share this year, losing someone very dear, me being so very poorly back in the summer, and now Emma's back problems, but we must try not to let these things defeat us. I know that's very easy to say, but we must keep having HOPE. Hope that things WILL get better.
My lovely daughter number 1 has been having extensive physio twice a week since she's been out of hospital and we are very hopeful that things will get a little easier for her.
Of course, another reason why Christmas is something wonderful to look forward to, is little Eli and Ruby. They are such a lovely age for it. I give thanks every day for my three very special grandchildren. Eleanor won't be with us this year, as she is going to Peru. That's right - PERU! I don't know, India in February and now this little jaunt! Her best friend's mum is Peruvian, so she was invited to stay with them for Christmas. Emma and Mark aren't coming for Christmas, but they will (hopefully) be hear for New Year.
I hope you all have a good weekend ahead. Look after yourselves until we meet up again.
