Xmas a Cracker

This will be my first Christmas without any friends or family. I do not wish to repeat this and hopefully it will give me a greater appreciation for all the people I have taken for granted in the past.

Christmas was the most exciting event of the year as a kid, and now that I'm grown-up, I'm somehow I still look forward to it with the same excitement I used to have even though I know the day itself will never be like it used to. Imagine how much cooler it would be if Christmas was still as brilliant as it was when we were kids! Getting sack loads of great stuff, running around like mad, getting ferried from place to place to get more pressies and more running around like mad. I think us grown-ups went wrong at some point!

The perfect christmas to me would be one where I don't need to do anything and the family just came to our house and brought the food for a change instead of going to my families house and then my husbands families house.

My family isn't a close knit family - I'll be lucky to get a Christmas card from anyone haha! So friends are the big one for me :)

This year it's all about "OUR" family. Instead of running from one to the other on Christmas Day - and not really having time to have our own special time - we have lovingly advised that we are unavailable until 10:00am Christmas morning. Our kids will no doubt be up at some ungodly hour - dying to see what Santa has left. and this will give Mum and Dad time to open our eyes properly and enjoy that special Christmas Snuggle. Then time to sit amongst the wrapping paper, the twinkling Christmas tree lights and Christmas Music - with a stiff cup of coffee (or two) - and just enjoy the delighted little faces. After 10 - it's Open Home at our hosue with a BBQ and BYO. We'll provide the venue, the drinks and lots of Christmas Cheer. Room to bunk down overnight - and just a time for Reflection and a lot of laughter. Beats slaving over a hot stove and missing out on the fun.

Christmas this year is about family. Unfortunately with me losing my job, money has been an issue but that shouldn't be what Christmas is about. We're all going to be here at home celebrating TOGETHER....and that's what's important
