coastal christmas

G’day December days, always very busy here, full of end of year school events, Christmas celebrating and you know all the other things that come along at this time…

The weather is warm, make that hot, we have had storms and hail stones and thick humidity, the tree is up, our Christmas day meal is locked in looking pretty fabulous, lights are twinkling, presents have been shipped, my roses and sweet peas are blooming and all of a sudden it feels like the good bits of Christmas are coming…decking the halls, making fudge, singing carols, looking at lights and a couple more festive parties.

I am looking forward to calm and peace, what I didn’t expect was the emotions from the beginning of the year to be popping back in to visit, it’s weird how it hits all of sudden bam like a punch in the face, but it’s made me cherish what we’ve got.

I’m keeping my head down with my thoughts, off to the fresh air to forage for some greenery for a gathering to hang on a door, I think I have found a place to hang fresh greenery that won’t be zapped by the sun…and this year I am fancying to hang a wreath in the kitchen window

There are teenagers clomping around coming and going with their lives, I love that.

I’ll see you.

    Hi Sarah, I’m glad that all is well with you and yours and I agree with the “punch in the face” feeling, sometimes when our minds drift back to a trauma tears come again and you find yourself having to shake it off and pop on a smile and be thankful. Your Christmas home looks lovely x

    Hi Sarah
    Thank you for getting me thinking again. In the past 18 months I have come close to being widowed and close to losing my older daughter. Both events were totally unexpected and thanks to being in the right place at the right time we avoided our lives being shattered.
    I have changed and giggle at the cr*p people stress about. I am grateful daily for small joyful details in day to day life.

    The crap (!) people get their knickers in a knot about…….especially at this time o’ year…..floors me too Alison and all. Sigh….

    I work in retail. (((Shudder)))). Can’t tell you the times I have been made to feel like I ruined someone’s life because we ran out of a certain Cab Sauvignon. Two days before Christmas. When they decided to start shopping lol. And because I couldnt supply the perfect gift to them…..Christmas as they knew it…..was ruined.

    What would Jesus say? I think He would say “pick another grape you big scallywagging doophus.”

    I have no less than four chronic illnesses…..and 5 nasty black chin hairs that grow at a frightening speed.

    And still…… I am so happy go lucky…. I could just pee.
