Until we hit the road on our family getaway. Squeee!
I have even bought some new beachy clothes for the occasion and am loving them!!!
But yesterday when she got home from kindy, this is how Gumboot Girl felt.
She is feeling poorly. Summer cold? I don't really know.
Her comment while she was lying on the couch got me right in the heart though. And no, not just because I've been chasing my tail for a week trying to tie up work and presents and buying supplies and fitting in every shopping centre before the big day! And let's not even get into why I was rewrapping all of our presents last night at a friend's house due to a certain eight year old finding who discovered them.
No. Let's not.
Anyway, Gumboot Girl and I were cuddling on the couch and she said, "And now I have to go to de beach house when I'm sick." :(
She has been counting down the days to the beach house and to Santa's arrival although Santa is paling in comparison to a week at the beach. So when she said that, it just made it all the more obvious as to how much she is really looking forward to this holiday.
She seems in better spirits today so hopefully she's on the mend.
And I am now going to step away from the computer because I can finally turn off from work and focus on the fun stuff (which just so happens to also be the important stuff)!
Family, friends, good food, laughter, love, presents and a few drinks! And hopefully a bit of sunshine thrown in for good measure. After all, what point is there in heading to a beach house if you can't go to the beach?
I LOVE Christmas time!
But can I just say this ...
I don't preach to anyone else on how they should be celebrating the festive season, so please ... please stop telling me that believing in Santa is wrong. My family. My choice. And I choose magic! Because what is life without a little bit of magic? And possibly some fairy dust thrown in for good measure. ;p
So whether you are celebrating the birth of Jesus or indulging in consumer heaven or not celebrating the day at all. Enjoy!!!
I wish you a magical Merry Christmas whatever your flavour! :)
