Unlike some other years I have written very little about Christmas this year.
We decided not to put up the tree this year as we will be away for Christmas.
Yesterday we had a small Christmas celebration with my immediate family as we will not see them on Christmas Day. We went out for a casual lunch, then went to the local playground so that our 2 granddaughters could use up some excess energy. Finally, we adjourned to my brother’s place were we shared some sweet nibbles and drinks while we opened our gifts. It was a low-key but perfect day.
The only thing that I had not done was send cards/letter/emails. This afternoon I sat done and wrote a generic letter, added a couple of relevant photographs and sent it off to various corners of Australia and overseas with a couple of clicks. I still have a small number of cards to post and I will do that tomorrow and hopefully they will still arrive in time for Christmas.
I am not sure how many blog posts will happen over the next week so I will take this opportunity to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a safe and peaceful New Year.
