Thank Goodness Christmas Is Over!

Wednesday, December 29, 2010

Phew.... the worse Christmas I have ever had is over! Yes, it was that bad - not going into it..... but my son's and I are hoping to have a Thoughtful Thursday tomorrow, where the plans are, no phones will be on/answered and no computers on and the door will be ignored. We are having a family day together - just the 4 of us & not being disturbed by anyone else "Lla me dos" (excuse the expression - read backwards).

I am so down that I can see this is the only way my sons can enjoy quality time together and with me. It won't be easy but we have all got plans to help make the day happen - we decided each of us would choose a favourite food, drink & game for everyone to enjoy. I am cooking dinner but the meal will be eaten in the living-room as it is different to the normal meal setting (although a tight fit for the borrowed table & chairs!). My son had re-decorated the crackers we have & re-named them "thackers" for Thursday!

Gift-wise, my son's had a few presents, but with money being tight, the gift they will get is togetherness (real word?!) along with the hope they appreciate everything they have. I can but try to make them happy.

It will be a difficult day but with determination it will work!

Hope you all had a peaceful Christmas with lots of Happy memories.

I must go & decorate ready for tomorrow..........not Christmas decs but arranging the wiring for the lava lamps, got star banners & decs to go up & we were given a prayer cloud that I hope will be a focus point.

Thinking about you all & I will raise a glass of elderflower juice to you all tomorrow.

HUGSxxx

    We do something like this every year. With all the parties and other commitments, we are all so busy. We wait until mid January, when things slow down. We also get in on the good end of the year sales. For us, it doesn't matter what day it is or whether or not it's exactly on the 25th. What matters the most is the time we spend together. Have fun. emoticon
