Twas the night before Christmas...

It's only an hour and a half til Santa heads this way.  We have watched his progress throughout the day via Norad and now the children are all in bed asleep - phew!

I still have presents to wrap and things to do but for once this year I am sitting down and taking it easy this Christmas Eve.  I am going to do something I rarely have time to do and actually just enjoy us all being together as a family.

It is so easy to get caught up with the preparations, the wrapping and the having to 'get it perfect' that the actual fun part of the Christmas period can be forgotten in all the stress we put ourselves under.  So I shall blog,  I will not feel guilty for taking time to myself when the list to do is usually foremost in my mind.

So for those of you out there also taking a moment to yourself and reading this blog post, have a happy, fun and relaxing Christmas day.  Enjoy watching your family open the gifts you have lovingly bought, made and wrapped for them and don't forget to enjoy the moment.

Happy Christmas!!
