Happy Christmas!

Well Christmas Day is nearly here and what promised to be an organized event has descended into laidback chaos! It started well. I shot some images and designed my Christmas cards. I made lists. Plenty of lists. And then… I couldn’t find my address list (I’m sure that there is a list somewhere on my Mac!) and then the printers messed up my order for my cards, only printing half of them correctly. They were printed again and still weren’t right, and eventually I ran out of time to send most of them. The lists have gone by the wayside, and are now ready to be recycled. But I don’t mind at all. Christmas Eve and the big day itself can be too stressful, when the most important thing is that you are with the people that love you and that you love back. It doesn’t matter if you’re late serving lunch. It’s your home, not a restaurant. It’s nice to be cooked for. I haven’t had Christmas Lunch cooked for me for about 20 or so years. I don’t mind at all because I love cooking, but others really hate it and so a little generosity and kindness should be the theme for the day.
So here’s to a really lovely Christmas Day and a happy healthy 2015!
