Term ended for myself and the older two last Friday and for the Little Miss, this week.
We started our Winter with a short weekend near Dover... some Christmas shopping in Canterbury, lattes in coffee shops and walks along the beach and cliffs. Sea air and some time away was a lovely, gentle start.
The holidays began for me with a weekend with my best friend in London. We had such a blast, not really doing anything other than catching up, laughing, eating and drinking...we might have sneaked a small amount of retail therapy in there too.
However, the frivolity was followed for me by a week of sinusitus, which has had me fairly miserable until late this week when finally my head decided to give me space again and the pain subsided.
It didn't stop us putting up our trees last week though, as long as I didn't bend down.
Mincepies are made, biscuits crafted, store cupboards stocked, stockings dug out from the attic, fires lit, singing voices prepped and ready...
Have a wonderful Christmas and I'll be back in the New Year.
