& I feel like I am walking through a fluffy cloud. I keep shuffling piles of things to do around the house, & I can't get determined enough to get on top of anything?
All Eric wanted for Christmas was a green nutcracker. Done.
I've stuck with our tradition. Something to read, something to make, something to play with, something they are currently "into"... bits & pieces in a little bag.
However, I don't have anything for my husband, or family...I can't seem to think clearly enough...then there's the whole expense AND Christmas isn't all about the gifts, it's all about HIS gift of sending his son & letting us know we are all precious & loved isn't it?? Then there's the whole grief for people who aren't here with us to celebrate & I feel especially emotional & teary at this time of year.
As soon as school finishes I think we are heading off for hols with dear friends who we really click with & who think along similar lines to us, so that will be so encouraging at the end of a busy year.
Off to pick up the kids from school now...not long until Eric is in Kindy...where did THAT time go???
