Merry Christmas

Home » Blog » Merry Christmas

The mince pies are in the oven, there's tinsel all over the house, the children have reached fever pitch and I've picked up the largest turkey I've ever seen. It spent last night in the car because it was too big for the fridge and we're hoping we can just about squeeze it into the oven. This year has been so hectic that I've decided to model myself on my best friend's mum, who does the most amazing Christmas days — she opens the first bottle of champagne around about 11am and it all just falls into place after that........

Oh and before I slip off — just one more thing to say, wherever you are this Christmas, take a moment to stop and rest and look around you at everything you have — for us it is family and friendship — sometimes it's easier to think about all the things which are wrong in life, rather than all the things which are right.
Merry Christmas!
