To all my blogging friends and acquaintances, including those with whom I don't keep in constant touch I sincerely hope you will all have a most enjoyable festive season.
At this time of year I think of family that are no longer with us, along with so many friends I have lost over recent years. I still miss them all so very much but I am so very thankful I still have Phil, and my daughter and son-in-law who are so precious to me as are my grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Today we will be enjoying our Christmas Day at our eldest granddaughter and grandson-in-law's home. They have two little girls aged 3 and 7 and it is always great fun watching the excitement as they open their gifts. Always wonderful to be with this little family of ours and the joy never lessens. I will also be sharing my birthday with them in a week or so as daughter and son-in-law are shouting us all to dinner as they did for Phil earlier this month. At our age it is so much more acceptable than gifts as we get to be with family again and who needs gifts in their 80s? Bringing us all together again is the best gift I can ever have.
