Well Christmas is nearly here and preparations are well under way! Decorations are up, presents mostly wrapped and final food list ready to buy!
To think we do all this for really one day, although I appreciate some extend this period and continue feasting!!. We cater for 12 - something I really enjoy having my family around me and sharing anecdotes past and present.
Then the follow up visiting relatives and delivering presents which in itself is hectic and challenging with so many people having the same idea heading for the motorways.
The one day in all this melee that my husband and I appreciate is Boxing Day which is our day. We really enjoy all the festivities on either side of this date but there is something very special about total relaxation and quietness and time just for the two of us. We savour the comfortable silence and potter around doing nothing in particular - heaven :)
