With us on the cusp of Christmas, I’d like to wish you all good luck during the festive break. Given the crazy times in which we find ourselves, I think we could all do with a day off from the merry-go-round. 🙂 I take hope you (and yours) remain safe and well, whatever you’re up to, and whoever you’re with. ❤️
I’d also like to express note of thanks to those of you who’ve visited and engaged with this little blog. With 2020 putting the brakes on so much, having a place to share thoughts and ideas has really helped, so thank you. On a blogging note, the time gain through not commuting means I have more creative energy – even if the quality hasn’t increased 😁 – so getting in two posts a week (give or take a bit) has felt very rewarding. I had planned a Look Back post for December, but it’s quite clear I’ve got a limited wardrobe when it comes to party frocks. 🙂 Still, a quick look in the archives did bring this happy memory of Christmas Outfits Past. 🙂
The Jones Family are – like many people this year – having a quiet Christmas. After the government nonsense, ongoing COVID19 malarkey, and – understandably – vulnerable/elderly relatives isolating: it may well be for the best. I am looking forward to a change, so fingers crossed it goes well eh?
On a family note, it’s the social aspect I think I’ll find so different. It’s that fine balance between fun and hard work. Sometimes too many guests – or a lot of travel – pushes the fun back and brings the tiredness levels up. Quieter may be better.
As the Every Lovely Mrs J pointed out, we can do something special for others at any time. Like with resolutions: if its important to you, why wait? So it was that we’ve cooked and delivered (at a social distance) good to Mrs J’s folks. They might not be able to join us in person, but hopefully they’ll be able to join us in spirit.
Luckily we’d planned a quiet one well before the new lockdown was announced, so we’re not overstocked with food. If you are and you can’t store it, please do think of food banks and charities who may be able to use it.
So, good luck over this festive break and I hope it goes as well as it can.
