I'm almost ready - in fact, if it doesn't arrive soon the sherry will be all gone! The kids are as excitable as ever - even though they are 19 and 16 years old! I don't know if its my age, but a couple of Christmas cards have arrived bearing sad news from people we don't see from one year to the next. This has made me determined to make more effort keep in touch with friends that we have "let slip". It has also made me determined to focus much more on what we "have" and not hanker after things we "want" but really don't need. Other cards have made me laugh. The one that arrived "to" someone different on the inside to the address on the envelope, and the one that arrived yesterday with no writing at all on the inside - so its not just me then!!! We only ever have a simple Christmas - it suits us just fine.
I have a mission to complete tomorrow, then its all "eat, drink & be merry" hopefully. xx
