It is funny what you remember about childhood, mam bought fruit every week and we thought nothing of it but at Christmas, it was always put in a big fruit bowl with oranges and nuts that needed cracking.
A much bigger than they are now tin of quality street, metal tin alongside it on the brick stone fireplace popular then. cards strung up on the walls on bits of string. Ceiling decorations that used to fall down on a regular basis held up by drawing pins or cellotape
Do you know just who you want to send cards to or do you wait until one pops through the door so you can then reciprocate? Would this not be a shallow action? I know exactly who is on my list and they all get one regardless of their ever sending me one.
What do you think of the craze for Christmas Eve boxes. Apparently the idea is you give a box to a child to settle them ready for Christmas day. Items to include pyjamas, bubble bath, a family game and a seasonal book. My children would have received these gifts in their Christmas stocking. Is it consumerism gone mad. What next the day before Christmas Eve boxes? My family unfortunately will have to put up with tracking Santa, singing carols and watching a seasonal film
Now that my children and even my grandchildren have grown up Christmas has stopped being exciting just an expensive chore, don't mean to sound all ba humbug it used to be my favourite time of year when there were little ones around. My husband suggested we go away over the Christmas period this year and I would look forward to this if I could find somewhere to go which is a dog friendly hotel, as I want it all cooked for me as I have done it for the past 40 years please could anyone give me any ideas My dog is an 8 yr old westie I live in South Wales but I am willing to travel
Oh joy! The shops are gearing up for Christmas; the cards & decorations are out even Christmas music is in one shop. The build up to Christmas has been ruined - it used to be magical when my children were young. What do you think? Do you feel the same?
