366 days of gratitude

Even though we have learned to focus on what matters and keep Christmas celebrations simple, there always seems to be slightly more on the to-do list than there is time available to do it by December 24th.

But Christmas Eve is here, ready or not.

I’ve been to the candlelight carol service, have done as much cleaning, tidying, wrapping and preparing as I’m going to do and now am waiting for the pavlova to finish cooking before having an earlyish night.

There’s carols in the background, the tree lights are on, even though it’s still a bit too light to appreciate them and Christmas lilies are scenting the air.

Tomorrow we’ll be celebrating with three generations of extended family, friends and probably a few waifs and strays.

Whatever you’re doing and whoever you’re doing it with, may your Christmas be joyous and may 2017 be kind to you and yours.
