For Christmas, oh yes, I A-D-O-R-E this time of year, the cosiness, the anticipation, the sparkle and now sharing in QT’s excitement. I asked her what she’d like Father Christmas to bring… her answer? Play Doh! Easily pleased. Me? A Lucky Voice karaoke machine.
But seriously, this time of year is all about reflection for me, looking back and remebering what’s happened, the highs, the lows, the exquisite moments where dreams come true, they don’t come along very often but I was lucky enough to have two this year. The first, QT’s new birth certificate arriving in the post one mundane Monday morning, with no warning, fanfare, not even a covering letter, just a piece of paper with our names next to boxes labelled ‘Mother’ and ‘Father’. I had a cup of tea and a CurlyWurly to celebrate. The second moment is still ongoing, so if you hear a big squeeey scream, then you’ll know that dream has come true too.
Thought I’d share some of our Christmassy pics. The pink box in this picture has a tag on saying ‘special little girl 2010’, I bought it last year to celebrate our first Christmas with QT, and the sparkly white seal below was chosen this year by QT because… quote, “he pants like a doggy”. The mind boggles.
Here’s Rudolph, the reindeer who greeted us at the Christmas tree plantation.
Happy Christmas and may all your dreams come true too…
