wishing you a very Merry Christmas

School’s out, my babies are home, my family are coming to visit, there are presents to wrap (OK, there are still some presents to buy), movies to see (just ask Finn which ones, he’s keeping a list of them but I’m hoping to see the Secret Life of Walter Mitty), parks to visit and things to do. I love the Christmas holidays and am looking forward to a well deserved blog break.

Have a wonderful Christmas with your family and may the spirit of Christmas be with you. If you are missing someone this Christmas then I hope you are comforted with memories, traditions and the knowledge that you’re not the only one.

Take care, have lots of fun, eat too much, spend lots of time with your little ones, remember to have extra batteries at home for toys, leave some cookies out for santa, carrots for the reindeers and just enjoy this very special time of year.

From my family to yours,

Merry Christmas.

That night in the fields near Bethlehem some shepherds were guarding their sheep. All at once an angel came down to them from the Lord, and the brightness of the Lord’s glory flashed around them. The shepherds were frightened. But the angel said, ‘Don’t be afraid! I have good news for you, which will make everyone happy. This very day in King David’s hometown a Saviour was born for you. He is Christ the Lord. You will know who he is, because you will find him dressed in baby clothes and lying on a bed of hay.
Suddenly many other angels came down from heaven and joined in praising God. They said:
‘Praise God in heaven!
Peace on earth to everyone who pleases God’
Luke 2 :8-14
