Although many bloggers have been writing about Christmas for many weeks now, it’s taken me much longer than usual to get into the Christmas spirit. In part I blame work as there’s nothing less festive than being stuck in a rather uncheery office all hours of the day and night. I’m still not sure I’m really there yet but I’m sure that tomorrow when my family come together to exchange gifts, eat dinner, play games and wear ridiculous Christmas jumpers, I’ll get into the spirit properly. Thankfully Christmas also means a few days without a hospital appointment for my mum, who is currently undergoing chemotherapy once a week and radiotherapy about five times a week, so it’ll be a bit of a break for her.
And so I leave you with this thought from The Grinch:
“What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!” – Dr Seuss
Merry Christmas all, enjoy the day. I hope you’re spending it with someone you love, be they family or friends.
