Christmas 2018

Christmas lunch – vege roast and all the trimmings for me, Niall, Niall’s mum and aunt Lesley. Served on mum and dad’s dinner service, reminding me of Christmasses past with family – busy days with everybody piled into mum and dad’s house – a surfeit of food, noise and happiness. Today was quieter, but just as happy. Setting the table I felt so lucky for all we have: our wine glasses were a wedding present from a friend, and the tablecloth was a gift from a student to Niall’s dad. The mats and cutlery were bought with money given to us when we married. So many memories, such good food, and such good company.

Now I am in my study relaxing. I have a new drawing book to inspire me, a new knitting book to tempt me, new pens to draw with, new notepads to write in.

And a cat who thinks it is time for food. She is right.

  1. Lovely. Our day will be quieter as well since almost everyone is grown and and away in our family. We all gather in January this year, and today, we share pics and face-time phone calls. Our dinner here will be simple and quiet, except for the new kitty watching my fingers fly and the letters flow across the screen, trying to decide which one to attack. 🙂 Merry Christmas!
