the other side
Well, here we are on the other side of christmas. Happy. Recuperating. Relaxing. A teeny bit heavier.
This year it was a small family gathering. There were presents (which I am making note of not to wrap the night before ever again). This year presents were mainly books and things to do. Such as a knitting kit or a guitar. We steered away from toys for the older two this year.
There was food. Quite a lot of it. Pork with crackling, gravy and apple sauce. Baked ham. Peas and prosciutto. All finished off with trifle and pavlova. We tend to go the traditional christmas dinner here.
I think every year of christmas can be a learning curve. Of finding and developing your own traditions. Though several christmas' have taken place in our house, I like to reflect on how different each one has been for us. The sights, sounds, food and company. All weaving together to create the future memories for our children.
Thank you all for your christmas wishes over the past few posts. Each and every one was appreciated. So sorry I did not get to thank you all personally. Wishing you all a restorative and relaxing week!
