From the Editor of the Newsletter – December 2021 & January 2022
December 2021 & January 2022
I know this may upset a lot of people, but I just want to say… I’ve done most of my Christmas shopping already! Sorry, not sorry. It has to be done I’m afraid.
As some of you may already know, I am a big child, through and through. I still get excited about rainbows and the tooth fairy. I never want to lose the sense of magic that I see all around me and Christmas is a truly magical time. I love the excitement of it. I love the tradition. Giving gifts to loved ones and taking the time to think about what will really make them smile when they open their presents? Love it!
I love to sing, and who doesn’t adore a Christmas Carol? I get told off at home for singing carols all year round. I really don’t see why a good tune can’t be appreciated throughout the year! Only my nephew, Tommy agrees with me on that one. Please let me know if you are a ‘shower caroller’ too!
The change in the seasons is always magical to me. Take a walk around the village when the light is fading and there’s a chill nipping your nose and ears. Breath comes out in foggy plumes, then home to a nice warm fire, some mulled wine and a mince pie. Wonderful! I’m going to spend this weekend testing said mince pies, before getting the decorations out of the loft. Don’t know about a Christmas Tree this year (gasp), as we have a crazy kitten who I know will climb it and make toys of the baubles and bells. Nope, I really can’t go without the tree… perhaps some tinsel wrapped scaffolding around it…
I hope you all have a lovely, magical Christmas and a happy & healthy new year!
The next issue of the Newsletter will be the February 2022 edition.
Take care all.
