Merry Christmas to all of you!
Remember to have the Christmas that really plays to your values. Have the Christmas that sits comfortably, the Christmas that feels warm, cosy, familiar and natural.
For me that means getting up at 6:30am and baking some bread, wearing the traditional Christmas morning outfit, my Christmas onsie.
Whilst waiting for the bread to prove I will often take to Facebook bemoaning the fact that my children are too old to get up this early.
The smell of baking bread always gets them up to be fair. We then have our present opening ceremony where Holly (our dog) takes centre stage.
This is her in pre-Christmas build up.
Once the presents are open and thanks are given, it is bacon sandwiches (vegan bacon for Ben) with freshly baked bread and Bucks Fizz.
We then tidy up and wear whatever wearable gifts we have received. We speak to various family members over the phone.
Before I know it, it is time to start cooking Christmas Dinner. I love cooking so this is a source of great joy. A bit of festive music, bucks fizz, a hot oven, and veg to prep and I am in heaven.
We have dinner at about 3,and then settle in front of the telly for the rest of the evening. Simple but enjoyable.
So whatever you do, do it the way you want and do it well.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
