Have we all recovered? All that shopping and wrapping and cooking and entertaining, all done and dusted for another year.
It's been a bit of a year though hasn't it? The number of celebrities that have passed seem to be increasing daily - and we have lost some great talent along the way. On a personal level the changes our family have seen are crazy. And 2017 looks like it's going to be eventful too with two weddings within 4 weeks of each other. As soon as the sales have finished I will be in true Mother of the Bride/Groom shopping mode!
It was so much fun to have a baby in the house over Christmas. He was determined to get as much wrapping paper in his mouth as possible and entertained us all with his cheeky smile and cute little ways. His Uncle Jon is absolutely besotted with him and it was hard to prise him out of his arms - I suspect that once he is married, a little cousin could be on the cards before too long!
I had the weirdest text message on Christmas day - from my dentist, reminding me that I was due a check up in January. Well that took the shine off my enjoyment of the Quality Street I can tell you. And he was determined I shouldn't forget, as I then got an email the following day - at which point I gave in and booked an appointment on line. That seems to have shut him up, or maybe the auto-reminder service has been silenced by the booking software.
Once again I am ending the year by singlehandedly doing my best to rid the house of all chocolate before the healthy eating regime kicks in on Sunday. Not to mention the dentist appointment on 9 January 😉
I shall be popping round the blogosphere whenever I can but in the meantime wish everyone a peaceful, happy and healthy new year.
