the holiday tonic
The best part of a holiday, to my mind, is to not have very much of anything to do. Not having to be anywhere. Of being in your dressing gown until eleven. Eating trifle for breakfast. Or (leftover) ham sandwiches for dinner if you feel like it.
And though a family of five ensures that there is always something to do, there is certainly a lot less to do. Many more moments of just being together. For it is the quieter times that allow us to reconnect with each other, don't you think?
I will be away from this space for at least a few days. So I will wish you all a happy new year now. Thank you all for your support, comments and reading over the past (not quite) year. I started this blog in March this year, not knowing if anyone would be interested in reading the day to day in our family life that is the inspiration for this blog. I have been blown away by so many kind comments, new friendships made and the support of the blogging community. Though I am often unable to answer all comments personally, please know that I do truly appreciate each and every comment. Next year I hope to keep up with my emails a little better, I promise!
See you all in 2012. Thank you!
