Lots of preparation goes into Christmas...
1. There's the shopping.
2. Putting up the tree.
3. Keeping the gifts secret.
4. Preparing a family meal to feed 5000 when there will only be 10 of you.
5. Making sure Skype is set up to speak to mum.
6. And having family fun.
I luckily got to skip part 4 as I went to spend the day with my best friend and her family. I've spent a lot of Christmas's with them, and this year was by far the best I've spent with them. Not because of the gifts, though I did receive some beautiful presents, but because the adults were relaxed and the children were having fun.
So as the Gregorian calender year comes towards it's end I have a lot to be thankful for.
I hope all of my readers, my family and friends have enjoyed this festive period and I look forward to sharing with you throughout 2013 x
