It's going to be another strange Christmas. Last year was the first Christmas without my mum and this Christmas is the first without my dad. It's been a strange year all round actually with many of us being separated from our families because of coronavirus. I had taken comfort in the fact that we were going to spend a few days with Daniel and Jasmine who we haven't seen since last Christmas but as they live in Essex and therefore have entered Tier 4 restrictions, we're now unable to see them. It's going to be very quiet around here.
Wishing you all a happy and peaceful Christmas.
We had all sorts of fun things planned for the 5 days we were originally told we'd be allowed to be together over Christmas but it's now only Christmas Day. I really am grateful that we are allowed that much. I hope you can get together with Daniel and Jasmine soon, Jo. Merry Christmas to you and yours!ReplyDelete
Happy Christmas to you Jo.ReplyDelete
Thanks, and for you too. Take care. xxReplyDelete
Happy Christmas Jo, I hope you enjoy your day, we can't see most of our grandsons this year, and will miss another birthday after Christmas.ReplyDelete
It's going to be a quiet one for many this year Jo and I know a difficult one for you without your Mum and Dad. Wishing you all the very best. XxReplyDelete
Wishing you a merry Christmas. Well, as best as you can considering all the restrictions.ReplyDelete
Hopefully, 2021 will let us get back to seeing our families.
I wish you a happy christmas Jo, it is very odd to have these firsts with out our beloved family members and then to be apart from others you would normally be with is very strange too. I hope that you and your husband and Archie will be Ok together and I am sending you a massive hug xxx Happy christmas xxReplyDelete
Same to you, Jo. You’ll have to have a zoom party.ReplyDelete
2020 has been a hard year for everyone but you have had it particularly hard. I hope you can find some comfort, solace and even a bit of joy this Christmas xReplyDelete
We have to be thankful that close family are staying safe.We all have to make the best of it.We should have been in Cambridge at our sons,spending time with our grandchildren who we havn’t seen for a year but I would rather this than not be here for next Xmas!!!ReplyDelete
Did you you take up my idea of a memory box?
I haven't as yet but something I may do at some point in the future.Delete
Happy Christmas, Jo. Sending love. XReplyDelete
Strange indeed & we still can't see our boys & families, though we can DD now. Merry Christmas to you too, take care, stay safe & sending lots of hugs from a cool, damp Australia. Even the weather is playing odd ball.ReplyDelete
Happy Christmas Jo, I'm sorry Daniel and Jasmine can't be with you when it's been so long since you last saw them but I hope you can still have as nice a time as these strange circumstances will allow xReplyDelete
My wish for you is that you connect with family somehow over Christmas!!!!!ReplyDelete
Happy Christmas. xReplyDelete
Happy Christmas, what a year it's been. xReplyDelete
Happy Christmas Jo. Continuing to think of you all. xx LindaReplyDelete
Take care of yourself. The past couple of years have been so very difficult for you. Hope you have a safe and blessed Christmas.ReplyDelete
So sorry your plans have been changed. Thinking of you and sending you love. Merry Christmas.ReplyDelete
It’s been such a rough year, sorry your plans were disrupted . Such a strange time to be living in right now. Hope you managed a calm and peaceful day.ReplyDelete
I found you whilst blog hopping, would be lovely to see you over at mine at emeraldcottage.blogspot.com xxx
It has been a weird one this year. We lost my Grandad back in September, so it's the first one without him. Still, I hope you still had a lovely Christmas even though you couldn't be with those you love. Take care.ReplyDelete
Oh this year has been downright weird for sure. Sorry your plans were ruined, a year is a long time to not see your children. I hope you had a good one anyway.xxxReplyDelete
So many had their plans changed at almost the last minute!ReplyDelete
Three of our children (and respective grandchildren) were put in Tier 4!
However I hope you were able to get some enjoyment from Christmas...
Here's to better things to come during 2021.
All the best Jan
Oh my goodness that's a list! As the year Ends, I want to thank all my blog pals for their honest and open posts. We put our selves out 'there' when we blog and it makes us vulnerable. Thank you for the beautiful life you show us across the pond.ReplyDelete
I hope you enjoyed your quiet Christmas, I enjoyed a more peaceful time without the family chaos, but I did miss everyone.ReplyDelete
