So how was your Christmas?
If you're anything like me, you're sitting at home now with your feet up thinking "Thank god it's all over". Not in a bad way of course but in a nice, content way. Here in the Mummy Of 3 Diaries household we had a good old traditional family Christmas this year. I tried to cut back on the gifts this year and watch what we spent as last year we really over did it and I was determined to learn from last years mistakes. My three still got everything they had asked for (or alternative versions of it) and were more than pleased. We travelled to see all the family as you do and enjoyed a wonderful, happy day. There was no fighting, no shouting, just smiles and games. I must say I'm not a huge fan of Christmas as I always stress and worry so much on the long build up to it but I must say I really have had a delightful one this year and I thank god for it.
Times are hard and the world is full of such sadness and hurt lately, I know I spared a prayer and a few moments reflecting this year for all those who were not with us. Christmas can bring back so many memories of the past but this year I made sure that I held onto those close to me and made the most of our day together. Life is too short to be looking back in sadness, this year I looked forward with optimism and hope. 2013 will be a better year for all of us!
I won't keep you away from what you are doing for too long, I'm sure you're still tucking into those Turkey leftovers or waiting to watch another re run on the TV. What ever you are doing, I hope you are well and enjoying the festivities as much as you can. From all of us here, We wish you a Merry Christmas and an even better New Year!
