Merry Christmas :)

I was sitting on my back porch late this afternoon,
sipping a glass of wine in the sun,
enjoying the warmth and 
thinking about Christmas Day.
Thinking about all sorts of things,
Mostly about the last few months,
and how so many things have changed.
I know that I have not been here much lately,
and I regret that.
But I know that that will get better
as I settle into my new job.
Some sense of normality will return,
after what seems to have been
the most frantic few months of setting up,
and now managing the new store.

I have a confession to make -
my stitching of late has been non-existant.
And my garden is growing wild,
although luckily it still looks so pretty
that's it's easy to forget there are weeds among the flowers.
But you know what,
I worked out a few weeks back,
that it doesn't matter!!!
I will stitch again,
very soon,
and the garden will get weeded,
also very soon.
These last few months have been the most exhilarating
and challenging,
and in all honesty,
the most exhausting as well.
But wow,
what a ride it's been.
Am loving this new adventure :)
with only a couple of sleeps to go
before the big man
in red suit,
long white beard,
round tummy,
and cheeky smile
comes knocking at the door
(well really -
 there is no way in the world that he will fit down my chimney,
and I'm betting it's the same at your house!)
I would like to wish you a very very merry Christmas,
lots of love and laughter with your families,
peace and happiness,
lots and lots of chocolate
and trifle
and cake
for Christmas Day:)
Jenny :)
