Jack finally asleep after a couple of hours of fidgeting and excitement for tomorrow. Jamie exhausted and sound asleep early. He's been up since 4.30am for work so needs some sleep. We did all the usual traditions: Carols, food and drink for Santa, Santa hats, glitter trails on the front lawn for the reindeer to see where to land (most of it ending up on Jack as we tried to do it fast due to the rain!)
The once Jack finally asleep and I'm about to wrap pressies it hit me. Jen and I did this together the last couple of years despite our separation and the house feels so empty. If I had realised how it would be I would have teed up Caz or Liz to come and help and share the time together. Too late now. A difficult evening here but tomorrow will be better. Now the others are asleep, can't handle the carols anymore tonight.
Anyway, wishing you all a Happy and Healthy Christmas and hope Santa brings you what you all want (happiness and health?) And may the Lord keep you all close at this special time, and I'm sure Jen would be sending all her love and best wishes to you all as well.
