happy Christmas



It has been a happy day.  From the moment K appeared to open her stocking with wonder and delight in our bedroom to now as we all relax and think about bed.  At bedtime, D asked me what my best things about today were.  So in no particular order:  K opening her stocking in our bed with all the delight of a three-year old who does not remember last Christmas and does not really know what to expect;  wrapping the presents then putting all the wrapped presents under the tree last night and admiring them before bed; setting the table for lunch with a vintage white table cloth and napkins from my favourite charity shop; watching D and K run around dressed as a dinosaur and a white rabbit in their new onesies;  singing ‘Oh come all you faithful’, in church; the tulips Ross gave me sitting on our breakfast table.

I started blogging after the birth of my first child. Since I stopped working, I realise I am defined far more by my relationships than by what I do. So, I am: wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend.
