Stockings are hung, gifts are wrapped, the fridge is groaning, mince pies and Christmas pudding are ready, Christmas movies watched and books read.
The house smells beautiful, candles are lit everywhere and my children are wrapping presents in the living room.
After a trip to Bath on Monday for some Christmas shopping and a wonderful lunch, we've virtually hibernated this week, just enjoying the holidays, watching Christmas television, baking and loving the fact that we were avoiding the scrum in the shops.
It's been absolutely lovely....
although somehow the germs got in and I have a terrible cough/cold, a raging headache and a nose as red as Rudolph's....blech :(
Still, 48 hours to go, I'll be fine....I hope!
I wish you a very Merry Christmas wherever you are....
full of love, peace and happiness....and just a little magic.
