The bleak mid-winter

We are approaching the end of the year and it’s been a busy one, full of the activity and chaos that accompanies family life. My three live wires are in the throes of the build up to the arrival of Santa. I love experiencing their glee and giddy anticipation of what’s to come.. holidays, friends and family and goodies galore.
Watching children embrace the positivity of the season reminds me that they are great teachers.. they remind us to stop and enjoy the moment, to experience all the happiness that we as adults can be numb to in our hectic daily lives.
The Christmas tree arrived yesterday and they whooped and jumped around at the sight of it (lying on it’s side without the christmas trimmings!) No snow expected.. we had no choice but to provide the snow ourselves. Have a peaceful and happy Christmas full of love and joy.
