When worlds collide at Christmas

Can it really be Christmas Eve already?

IMG_4708I don’t know where 2014 went. Looking back, it’s a blur of kids, emails, housework, homework, play dates, proofreading, Facebook, family…and books of course. The books I published myself, the books I was privileged to edit and proofread for other authors, and all the books I read and loved. (It’s hard to pick a favourite, but if I had to name one, I’d probably say The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion.)

But even though Christmas has come round in the blink of an eye, we’re ready. The presents are all wrapped. As usual, Santa’s snack is laid out for him—strawberries, chocolate chip cookies, and beer this year—and there’s a carrot for the reindeer, or course. We’ve snuggled together to read The Night Before Christmas. And the boys are fast asleep, looking like the little cherubs they are.

However, this Christmas Eve will be busier than usual in our house. Tonight we’re expecting a visit from both Father Christmas and the Tooth Fairy. I’d love to be a fly on the wall when those two get together! The stories they could tell…

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season, and that 2015 is a year full of stories—the ones you read, and the ones you live and love yourself.

Merry Christmas!

      And to you, lovely Dee! I think I’ll miss getting ready for Santa when the kids are grown. They make Christmas extra magical…as do special friends. 🙂 xx
