All over for another year :)

It always surprises me how quickly Christmas comes and goes. One minute it’s November and the weather is just warming up, and before you know it we’re eating Turkey and singing Auld Lang Syne. I try and make the most of the Christmas season and am usually more into it than I was this year, but for some reason – and despite my best efforts – I just didn’t feel Christmassy.

We did the trail of lights, Smales Farm, the Christmas Carols, the Tree, the presents, the dinner, the Christmas Eve movies etc. etc. etc. but it never really hit me this year. It was strange when I went shopping on Sunday after our family get-together, it felt like Boxing day and that it was all over even though we hadn’t even had Christmas yet… hmmm

Despite that I DID really enjoy the quiet family day we had with my parents and brother and Joshie had a ball. It was lovely to watch him REALLY into opening presents for the first time this year, and he loves his ‘jump jump’ as he puts it (his new trampoline).

Aaaah, the trampoline. We had a few dramas on the day before Christmas Eve with the trampoline. Turns out what Santa was going to give Joshie was just a safety enclosure (yup, despite the advertising saying it was a set there was, in fact, no trampoline included!!). And as I bought it in October I had no way of proving what the ad in the paper said. Sooooo long story short I had to go find him the matching trampoline AND put it together on Christmas Eve. It all worked out though and despite aching joints (hard work putting one of those together!!) it was all worth it to see Joshie so happy and I’m very grateful for the fact we were in a position to be able to just go and buy the trampoline as well as the enclosure, I feel sorry for families that bought the same item and didn’t find out until Christmas morning that there was no trampline in the box…

So what am I grateful for this year?
• A happy and healthy family
• Great friends
• Making it onto a DT
• A business that’s ticking along and has a great future this year

Speaking of scrapbooking (as I do!! LOL), here’s a page I did a few weeks ago but couldn’t show you as mum reads my blog and got a large canvas of the same pic for Christmas!

We had a Boxing Day lunch yesterday (in between the rain showers) and Steve is currently building himself a man shed, no me allowed LOL! Our office is wayyyy too small for both of us so he’s building himself a workshop to make some more room for all the amazing scrapbooking stuff I got for Christmas (good on ya mum!!). 🙂 Ooooh, and I got my favourite – Scrapbookey VOUCHERS!!! I’ll be seeing Lisa very soon me thinks… hehehe

Anyway, hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are enjoying a break in the sun with your families. Roll on 2008!!

    Gosh, the trampoline fiasco sounds like a bit of a nightmare! Glad you got it all sorted in time though! Sounds like you had a nice Christmas, and yay for getting Scrapbooking vouchers! 🙂
