#MySundaySnapshot – Staying Safe By The Twinkly Lights 51/52 (2020)

Welcome to this week’s #MySundaySnapshot post, which is part of a snap-sharing-blog-linky series that you are very welcome to join. Click here for further information and guidelines upon this linky should you wish to take part.

Whilst the majority of the UK are in mid-meltdown following the recent news regarding covid Christmas regulations, I couldn’t care less so long as my family are fit, healthy and happy. If this year has taught me anything, it’s that health is a priority and something which must always come first whatever the occasion.

I’m well aware that people are desperate to see their family and to spend Christmas time together but we need to get real – we are in the middle of a world-wide pandemic, inches away from a vaccine, so why blow it now just for the sake of one day?

#MySundaySnapshot - Staying Safe By The Twinkly Lights 51/52 (2020)

Personally, I’m quite happy to sit tight by the twinkly lights of my Christmas tree and to slob out on the sofa with some festive films. Christmas, from my point of view, was cancelled a month ago when I lost my Dad and though I’m trying my best to keep things upbeat and exciting for the kids, this year is so far from ‘normal’ that I’ll be far happier when it’s all over.

Bring on the new year, bring on the vaccine and bring on ‘normality’ if that may ever return…

Thanks for reading my #MySundaySnapshot post, I look forward to catching up and sharing your #MySundaySnapshot pictures either through your own posts, social media shares or comments upon this post.

    I’m totally with you on that! My own dad is seriously ill at the moment and all I care about is keeping him and my mum safe. We’d already decided we weren’t going to mix three households for five days to keep everyone safe, so the change doesn’t bother me. It’s one Christmas in one year. Let’s just keep everyone safe and get back to big family Christmases next year.

    It’s going to be tough Christmas without your Dad, my heart goes out to you. I lost my Mum on Christmas day 12 years ago this year. It’s hard missing someone you love but you will get through it. I’m sending you a big hug. x
    p.s. no mixing this year for us either.

      We are in tier 2 so we can mix technically but I’m sure as hell not going to risk it !

    The latest news is tough for those who had made plans but we are so close to getting the vaccine it isn’t worth blowing just for Christmas. We’re staying home and we’re having no visitors, we’d planned that before yesterday’s news anyway. I just want to keep us all safe.
    Sending love and hugs to you xxx
