The presents are wrapped and under the tree. The Christmas dinner menu has been decided upon and the pork belly ordered.
We’ve been enjoying the first plums off one of our plum trees, spending lazy afternoons knitting or reading on the verandah and playing lots of scrabble in the evenings.
I’m hopeful this slowing down and relaxing will continue through Christmas and well into the New Year. It takes a bit of thinking about – to be unhurried, slower, more mindful – but it’s worth it. Every single minute.
I hope you are not too stressed or busy and able to enjoy all the happiness and festivities that the season brings.
