My Wish For You...


This has definitely been a week
of ups and downs
but I am ready to move forward
and look towards the week-end




work was crazy busy
exhausting really
and I am happy to be off for 4 whole days




a dear friend of mine lost her Dad on Tuesday
gone too soon as he was only 64

the funeral is this morning and I am an honorary pallbarer
I cried when she asked me
RIP Jack




Molly has not been well all week
and yesterday Trev took her to the vet
she is on medication and a bland diet now for a 
couple of weeks and I hope that my little monkey
will be better soon ~ very soon



so onward we go
remembering the reason for the season
and it is not all about Santa!

Tomorrow night we will head to church
then back here for some nibblies and drinks

the turkey will be prepped and ready to pop in the oven 
on Christmas morn
as dinner will be served at 1

we will have Christmas crackers with funny hats

and cookies frosted and plain

the paper and ribbon and bows will fly

and I will look around the room and be thankful
for all my loved ones
being together on this glorious holiday


Merry Christmas to all of my faithful readers
and to those of you who pop in when you have the time

my wish for you this week-end 
is to have joy in your hearts
and a loved one by your side

much love xo
