I hope that you all had the best festive season ever and that you are all able to relax a little now that the manic-ness is over.
In all honesty, I didn't know what I'd be feeling on Christmas Day. I was expecting a kind of numbness and a sense of loss, it being the first without my Dad. However, after the kids had opened their gifts and taken a trip over to their other family for an hour or two, I quietly lit a candle next to his picture and wished him a Happy Christmas. I'll admit to a few tears then, but thankfully they were the only ones that day.
We spent the afternoon and evening at my brother's house and had the loveliest time. In fact, I would go as far as to say it was the best Christmas day I can remember. The house was cosy, warm, and full of laughter and love. Just perfect.

I've spent a few hours this afternoon catching up on posts on my favourite blogs, drinking coffee and snuggling on the sofa Pretty darn near perfect I reckon!
Wishing you much lazy-dom and cosy-ness until next time.
