Welcome to HappyDays! The idea of this linky is to inspire others to make the best out of every day, to see the happy in the little things. As no matter what, there is always something good in every single day- we just need to take the time to see it. Share your happy posts, I love to read them!
Happy Saturday everyone!
I hope you’ve all had a good week and are getting organised for Christmas- not long to go now is there? I am feeling rather organised after a manic shopping trip and a good few hours of wrapping everything. I still have the girls’ presents to wrap but apart from that I think I am ready! We aren’t hosting this year so that is a relief, I can enjoy the day without worrying about oven timings!
I am so looking forward to the next couple of weeks. We are staying close to home and spending time with friends and family, nothing too exciting but those are the best times aren’t they? Christmas day and Boxing day will be spent with Mr F’s side of the family and then we will see my family in the days after that.
Christmas with my family has changed ever such a lot over the last couple of years with my dad up and leaving us all. He used to be the one to get our presents from under the tree, the one to cook the food, the one to put batteries in the toys. Now that job is passed along to other people. In all honestly I don’t really think of him often, not off my own back anyway. My mum talks about him daily and so of course I think of him then, but I try to focus on the happy- the people in my life who deserve my time and my love.
Still, at this time of year it is hard not to think why he wouldn’t want to be here, with his daughters and granddaughters, To me, family is everything and the whole focus of Christmas. Wherever he is on Christmas day, he will not be with his family, opening presents, laughing together, pulling crackers and watching naff tv while scoffing on sweets.. That is something I will never understand.
My mum worries that I am holding back some turmoil about it all but really my view on it is this:
Hold close those who bring you joy. Let everyone else go. [tweetthis]Hold close those who bring you joy. Let everyone else go. [/tweetthis]
Christmas day will be the best day as I will have everyone I love close by. My children will be happy and that will make me the happiest mummy in the world.
I will be back on the 2nd of January to hear all about your Christmas and new year celebrations. Have a wonderful 2 weeks!
