Despite all that went before, disappointments and inconveniences, it is still Christmas and I love this time of year. Our water pipes may be frozen, I may not have left the house in days because of the weather. We may not have been able to travel to Finland for Christmas and we may have had to make some compromises.
Nevertheless, we have plenty of food for us, the cats and the birds outside. The house is warm and you can smell the Christmas in the air. Mr S and I are together and that's all that matters in the end. Thanks to Skype we can still see my family tonight and tomorrow.
All is well and we are starting to quiet things down. Here is my favourite Christmas carol.
Happy and Peaceful Christmas to you all!
