I’ve been very quiet on my blog lately and haven’t posted anything Christmassy at all. I’ve not felt very Christmassy in fact.
I’m not as excited and bouncy about Christmas as I have been before. Which is fine. It just pretty much just sums up this year. It’s been a difficult and long one in many ways that I won’t get into now. There have been good things and I have good memories. But as I wrote in an email to an acquaintance last week if I had to sum this year up it would be that it’s been one of broken wheelchairs and deaths. In previous years my blogging around this time has been about exciting plans I’ve got for the new year and things I want to do in it and how I’m looking forward to that. At the moment when I think of 2017 I’m mostly thinking that at least it won’t be 2016 any more – I’d like to think next year has to be better than this but I don’t want to say that too loudly.
That’s not to say I’m not enjoying this Christmas season – I’ve read a couple of Christmassy books (not as many as I wanted), been listening to a lot of Christmas music and enjoyed a yearly watch of Arthur Christmas.
I’m looking forward to time spent with family, good food and some traditions. I’m looking forward to some down time to rest and crochet (I’m making myself a blanket and trying to get it done by the end of the year) in front of rubbish TV and do not very much at all. I’m also looking forward to seeing my nephew enjoy Christmas (although he is still too young to properly get it).And games of Mancala which we only ever seem to play at Christmas.
I’d like to thank everyone who reads my blog for their support this year and wish you all a Merry Christmas!
