Its Christmas!

So in a few days the big event will be here. I always view it with happiness but also a little sad. I for one love the build up to the day , with all the lights and music and best thing Christmas movies! I love all the feel good stuff and Santa being jolly ( I know I am a big kid at heart) its just fun. So at the end of Christmas day when all the gifts have gone from under the tree, its a bit sad. Then you pick yourself up and start another year.

This year has been good more the most part. I got another grandchild in January. Grace was born five weeks early on the 22nd, so it will soon be her first birthday! She was so tiny but over this year she grew and grew and is a very happy little girl now.

Our grandson Nathan turned one in June and he has grown into a proper little boy. He is so sweet and I think Grace will have him running around after her as he has such a kind nature.

My health is not so good and I gained a lot of weight from not being able to do much. I would lie if I said it does not give me sad times but it does. Hey I fight on and always try to paste on a smile no matter what. It also stops me from doing a lot of things i used to love like going to the gym or dance classes. One thing it gave me was blogging ! Once I started I found the the world had no limits. I could talk to someone in Russia or The United States, Canada you name  it I could be there and chat. I met so many lovely people , some I have been lucky enough to meet and others who will always remain an online friends. It really does give me so much to smile about when I see an e mail or message from someone. When I think I did not even get my first computer till I was in my late 30's lol.
There are so many I hope they forgive me for not name checking everyone, but I am sure you know who you are. I would like to thank everyone who I have chatted with for making my rather dull life a little bit brighter.
Long may it last and I am learning every day and keeping my mind active and that has to be good. Just need the body to join in and we will be cooking lol.

So I would like to end this post with say a very Merry Christmas my friends and hope you will chat to me lots next year. xxx

  2. I am sorry you have struggled and have missed out on things that you enjoy. I for one am glad that you started blogging as other wise I would not have got to know you and your beautiful family. You have two gorgeous grandchildren! I don't think I have ever seen a photo of Grace when she is not beaming from ear to ear. Beautiful! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas! Try not to get too sad when it is over. Time flies by so quickly that Christmas 2016 will be here before we know it. Lots of love. xx
