It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas! As in I've been doing a festive hop-skip all over town catching up with friends new and old, and I've woken up this morning with a sore head. Merry Christmas EVERYONE! This will be my last post until after Christmas, so I'll take this opportunity to wish you all a lovely and festive time over the next week. I hope your Christmases are filled with mince pies, and mulled wine, and lot's and lot's of cuddles with your loved ones.
I've realised, with something of a shock, that I've actually had a pretty good year. And that's a shock because I think recently I've had a tendency to focus on the things that have gone wrong - worrying about money, or not having enough time to do, well, anything (and that especially includes giving the Lori and the Caravan shop the attention it deserves - sorry about that), and then I've been so busy moping around and feeling a bit pants there's been no time to think about the good in my life. And there is a lot of good. I don't mean to brag, but I have the best husband. Seriously, he's so lovely. And yeah, my child might insist on getting up at 5am every morning and yeah, he might have started to throw some epic tantrums (yikes), but he's such a spirited and independent character, and I love that every day I get to watch him grow as he explores the world around him. The good outweighs any early start, or mid-supermarket-shop meltdown. And I get to live somewhere beautiful, and make our little piece of it our own. So what if the move was a bit stressful, or that we're all squashed on top of each other right now. It'll be worth it. The good outweighs the bad. I think Christmas is the perfect time to take stock, and give yourself a big pat on the back for everything you've achieved this year. I bet when you think about it, you'll be surprised at what you've managed to do in twelve short months.
So we're off to spend Christmas in the Midlands with my lovely family. I'll be back on this 'ere blog before New Year, and then off we fly into 2015!
