Have Yourself A Very Merry 2020 Christmas

This time last year Paul and I were in the midst of clearing dishes, plates, and glasses following our traditional ‘Christmas eve family get together’, the recycling boxes were stacked high with empty bottles and the lounge was still covered in books and toys from where the kids had been playing with their cousins. This year is an entirely different story…

My kitchen and living room are both clean and tidy, there’s been no buffet nor family get together and though I rather miss the chaos which is usually Christmas – I’m ever so slightly relieved to have the respite this year as it’s been a really tough time and I’m not exactly the best company at present.…

Gaining A Little Insight With The Insight Tarot

Following what has been an emotionally draining and difficult month, I took a little break from reading tarot. This week, however, I returned to my ‘tarot table’ and got to grips with a brand new deck, The Insight Tarot which was very kindly sent to me by Schiffer Publishing to shuffle through and to share on this here blog.

#LivingArrows – Festive Feasting 51/52 (2020)

Having finished school for the Christmas holidays, we enjoyed a celebratory buffet as a ‘bubble family’, and the following day we were spoilt with yet more food as Mum kindly made us all sausage and mash – talk about festive feasting – I really need to watch my waistline!

Although there are still a few days to go until Christmas, we pulled a few crackers and enjoyed some early festive family time together. This year is so far from normal that any joy we can offer the kids, we do so by the bucket full.

Thank you for reading and as always, I look forward to catching up with your #LivingArrows either through your own posts or comments upon this post.…

#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?…
