all is calm, all is bright
After a VERY long week, Christmas is finally here and everything that is still on my to-do list is going to have to wait. I am actually going to FORCE myself to have a break now, and relax, step away from the computer and remind myself that my Blackberry will still be there on Boxing Day if I want it; which I probably won’t…deep down I hate that bleeping monstrosity, and after a few days without it I’m more than likely to throw it against a wall (I’ve done that before, I’m not even joking…)
But enough of that! I am so happy it’s finally Christmas and that everyone I love is safe and smiling. This year I have felt myself unable to focus on the things that people usually think make up Christmas, like wish-lists and decorations and baking; but I suppose even though I adore those things (especially the baking…) this year I have had so much to be thankful for in my daily life that none of that really matters. I have found it hard concentrating on what to wear for which carol service, but that is only because I have been looking towards 2013 with such eager eyes. So now I want to slow down, and notice how lucky I am (how lucky we all are) and give thanks for all the ways I have been blessed.
In other words…I’m fricking exhausted and I’m turning my phone off now. I want to go to sleep, and dream of snow. Happy Christmas! xxx
