Three days without posting seems like such a long time nowadays 😉. How is everybody? Did you all have a good time over the Christmas days? I have just taken my mum to the airport again. She only had a short visit here this year, but I think she came for the best days. Because the days “between the years”, as we call the time between Christmas and New Year’s Day, is always somewhat tricky. Not that much to do in terms of sights and shops, and wintry weather that makes walks a gamble. We mostly stayed among ourselves this Christmas, foregoing the usual celebration with my husband’s family on the 25th, or the traditional Christmas walk on St Stephen’s Day. However, we put on Irish Christmas for my mum on Christmas Day – with all the trimmings. We have turkey and ham left over to last us til the new year 🦃🥪…
After much waiting, Mr A also graced us with his Christmas message, which you undoubtedly have already seen. I’m just keeping it here for future reference.
Best part: the word count 🤣.
Now comes the quiet part of the holidays. I have been updating my December diary, and to get the customary Richard pics in, here are some pages from it.
The RA pictures all came from Christmas post this year and last. Many thanks to the senders – you spoilt me ☺️.
I had hoped to use the holidays to finally tackle my study/craft room and turn it into the inspiring work space I really want, but unfortunately I feel under the weather right now, with a horrible dry cough and a constant tingle in my throat. Typical – as soon as the stress lets up, the body shuts down. Good thing that I can blog on my laptop, from my bed. I’ll take it easy now. The plan is to actually reply to all the lovely wishes and comments that have come in over the last few days, and which I haven’t answered yet. So, enjoy the rest of the year – chill and take it easy!
