Gentle Holiday Cheer

It has been a week since my Grandad passed away. He had been ill for a long time and was in hospital for two weeks before he lost the fight. He lived a good, long, happy life, and is finally at peace. Our family is grieving for his loss, but we feel relief that he will no longer suffer the long, lonely days without his wife, my Nan, who died two years ago. They were devoted to each other, and to their family.

This Christmas weekend has been mostly quiet and peaceful. We visited our family and will take time to catch up with friends while we are away from home for a few days. My children are enjoying some quiet time with me, and I with them. We all received some lovely, thoughtful gifts and Santa was very generous to the children. We are swimming in Lego, and I have no idea how I will transport it home now that we have assembled the intricate play sets. Ah, fun and games! For now I leave you with good wishes for your festive week, whatever you are doing. My husband has returned to work so it is business as usual. Life goes on.

Winter Solstice and the Pagan Housewife

The Winter Solstice is almost upon us, and this year I find my mood changeable and confused. I feel both happy and sad, hopeful and hopeless, and above all, determined to enjoy whatever life throws at us in the year to come. The Solstice will be a day for relaxing while our children attend their last day of term at school. My husband is off work, which up to now has been a very contentious issue. In fact, only in the past four months have I seen improvements to his work/life balance. Many events unfurled at the end of summer, our autumn was busy and challenging, and I like to think that winter will be a time for calm and contemplation.

We must let go of all that has happened, and look forward to what will come. Our family dynamic will change again in 2018. I have no idea if or when our house will sell, or where we will move to. I have decided to leave the events to happen naturally, rather than try and influence them all the time. I am excited about 2018. It will be a good year. Solstice Blessings, my friends!

Christmas with Family, and Cherished Memories

There are just four days left of the winter term at school. Last week I enjoyed watching our daughters perform in their school nativity plays. Both were brilliant, of course, and we had lots of laughs and lots of loving smiles as we watched. Then I had the pleasure of seeing my daughters display their dancing in the after school classes we attend. My youngest is learning ballet, and she looked incredibly cute performing a routine for a song from the Disney movie The Little Mermaid. My elder daughter attends a freestyle dance class, and she performed a dance routine from Disney’s Aladdin. It was great fun to watch!

We have enjoyed a weekend of parties (both birthday and Christmas), and simply a little time to wind down and finish preparing for Christmas. Is it really only a week away? Wow! I will add that my happiness is tinged with sadness at present. As I write this post on a Sunday morning, I await news from hospital about my paternal Grandad. He has been ill for almost two weeks now, and his time here on earth is almost up. We have visited him and prepared, but of course the tears will continue to flow as we grieve and release. His birthday is on Christmas Eve, and as a child it made our festivities all the more exciting and fun. I will always cherish the memories of my Nan and Grandad hosting parties at their bungalow, at the big family gatherings we would have, and all the dancing and singing over the years. I love my family.

Festive Snow

It was nice while it lasted! We finally had a sprinkling of snow here in the North West, and it stuck. Our youngest daughter was amazed to see real, proper snow that she could walk around in and make snowballs with. My husband and I had a snowball fight that got a little bit vicious…whoops! And we tried to build a snowman, but the dog kept eating it.

The snow came down on Friday night and stayed for the weekend while we had a sleepover at the in-laws’ house. Back home, however, it all melted away very quickly, and now it has gone. Ah well, maybe it will return for Christmas…

Letters From Santa

Our children have enjoyed a magical weekend on the Santa and Steam train at the Churnet Valley Railway, and a visit to Santa’s grotto at their school Christmas fair. To top it off, we finally had some decent snowfall in the UK, and “Little Switzerland” looked especially festive and pretty as we chugged along the old train tracks, sipping sherry and soaking in the atmosphere. I loved it!

The weekend finished on an excited note when my daughters woke to find their Christmas elves sitting under the tree, each holding an envelope addressed to the children. They had received official Lapland Mailroom letters from Santa! He wrote personal notes to each child, and presented them each with a “Good Child” certificate. Suffice to say that we are well and truly excited for Christmas Day.
