Well the decorations and lights are up and the cakes are iced, the cards are posted and most of the shopping is done. I can now collect my thoughts together before and relax a bit before the family arrive on Christmas Eve.
When I was coming home earlier in the week I stopped in a lay by to take some pictures of the sun setting.

Christmas for us last year didn't really happen. All our things were packed as we were between houses including all the Christmas decorations. We put up the cards, watched TV and hoped things would get back to normal as quickly as possible. We had hoped to move before Christmas but we didn't move till March.
This year has been different and I could not wait to get the decorations up. In the past I have always gone for traditional Christmas colours but the lounge really does not lend itself to traditionl so it is purple, silver and white. Our dining room is very traditional and tomorrow I am going to buy a small Christmas tree to go in there.
The tree is of the ground as Sophie is now crawling and into everything!
