Merry Christmas 2021

There have been many changes for us over the last few Christmases, firstly back in 2018 when Daniel spent Christmas with Jasmine's family over in America. It was the first time one of our children hadn't been with us over the festive period. 2019 was the first Christmas without my mum and then in 2020 my dad was no longer with us either. That was the Christmas we had the lockdowns and restrictions because of Coronavirus too.

This year will be another change for us as Eleanor has moved into her own house with Jacob, though they don't live far away so she'll be here to celebrate with us. Jacob is working a night shift on Christmas Eve so he'll spend a portion of Christmas Day sleeping. Daniel and Jasmine came up from Essex last Thursday and they're staying until the new year so it's lovely that the family is all together. Hopefully, in the new year, they'll be moving back to Leeds so that's something to look forward to.

Thank you to all my bloggy friends who have sent me Christmas cards, I know many people don't send so many these days, or else they've cut right back, but it is lovely when a card drops through the door and greetings are received in this way.

Wishing you all a happy and peaceful Christmas.

  3. Merry Christmas to you and yours, Jo. We'll be without Debbie and her family this year as they're now in Canada. It's sad but, as Emily (4) tells me, they're on an adventure!

  8. Sounds like you'll have a nice Christmas celebration with most of the family. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. We're not getting with the larger family again this year, thanks again to Covid and now Omicron specifically. Sigh. Stay well.
