Because Christmas is not polite enough to fall on the same day of the week each year, I am Always mixed up. I need continuity. Without a TV or radio to remind me of the day – a muddle happens. Two of my children are on my side of the globe but three of my children and their loved ones celebrate Christmas in another hemisphere (or is it me who is in the other hemisphere), they get Christmas the day before I do. And sometimes I have to think terribly hard to keep up.
I am not a christmassy person, (here is why) I have no decorations up, no tree, I send presents in the mail for the wee children, nothing more than that. I bought John a special hoe and I am not telling you what I bought The Matriarch because she is one of The Fellowship and I don’t want to spoil the surprise (but I told everyone NOT to get me anything at all – I say this every year – I cannot bear money being spent because people feel they have to) but my main focus is to make sure I get the timing right for the phone calls to all five of my children – to wish them Happy blah blah blah, glad they are with people who LOVE christmas and get off the phone again before I say something awful or Weep. But I love to hear their voices.
However it seems to me that today is Christmas Eve here in my neck of the woods and so Merry Christmas to those of you who are celebrating Christmas Day on the beach in the other neck of the woods.
I hope you have a gorgeous day.
Good morning. I hope you are going to have a glorious day. Christmas Eve or Christmas Day or just Ordinary. Every day deserves to be as glorious.
Love your friend on the farmy
