December Twenty-Fourth – gathering

BubblesThe turkey was delivered this morning. The fridge is full. The wine is chilled and the Quality Street have been opened. Today has been a relaxed day, with a walk in the park, feeding the ducks, friends dropping by with gifts and cards (and to pick up a case of red we were holding for them). The family has gathered. The first games have been played and the first song (“It’s all part of being a pirate”) sung. I’m trying to relax and not worry about the details. Just enjoying the moments. Thinking about the people I’m not with today and looking forward to speaking to them tomorrow and seeing them soon. Christmas is nearly here!
