Today marks the first time in over a year that Paul and I have been ‘child-free’ for the evening, it felt really weird driving the kids to my Mum’s house knowing that Dad wouldn’t be there…
Having enjoyed a coffee and a natter with my Mum, I then left the kids for the night and took a little stroll through the square (where I took this festive photo) towards the churchyard to pay Dad a visit. It’s the first time that I’ve been to his grave following the funeral last week and though it was really nice to see all the flowers, cards, and such-like, it felt strange, silent, and somber.
After an emotional afternoon, I returned home to my ‘Elf duties’ as Paul and I spent two hours building followed by a further three hours wrapping. To say I am exhausted is an understatement but at least we’ve now got Christmas wrapped up and ready!
“O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
How lovely are thy branches!
