Christmas Eve Traditions


It’s funny how little traditions unintentionally build up over the years. I’m sitting in my jammies, waiting for mum to get back with the Chinese take-away. We’ve got a selection of cheeses ready for later, accompanying the extremely cheesy film ‘Babycakes’ starring Ricki Lake – a film that we watch every year. The presents are wrapped and placed on the sideboard (due to the dogs always taking an interest in them). It’s just me and mum – my sisters haven’t spent Christmas Eve with us in a long time, and it’s quiet. I realised that this is the same routine we’ve re-enacted every single year, and I wouldn’t have it any other way (although I wouldn’t say no to a lottery win…)

This year has been a life-changing, exciting roller coaster of a ride, and while I’m going to save my review of 2015 for next week, I wanted to take the opportunity to say thank you. Thanks for your support, your encouragement and your friendship. Wherever you are, and whoever you’re with, I hope that this holiday season is a peaceful and happy one…

Happy Christmas xx

  1. Thx Suzie………. and all the very best to you. Should I envy you (being 5 hours ahead of us and having Christmas before us), or smile with sadness (yeh right!) because your “main event” will be over when we are just starting! 🙂 Have a good one! 🙂

      • Hi Suzie! Sorry I am just getting back into the swing of things. Our two Christmas’ were good. My family got together Christmas eve, and Tom’s side got together here at our house on New Year’s day. It was a busy day with a three year old nephew, and a one month old nephew. Everyone ate too much on both days and I am glad the holidays are over for another year. I am wore out. Hope you had a good start to the New Year. 🙂

  2. Thank you Suzie and good to hear all is on track. I need to take a leaf out of your blog writing book for 2016. With an eminent move to Brisbane I am finding my time focused on other matters. Happy new year to you!
