It's Almost Over ....

By Sue15cat

It's Almost Over ....
It's almost over for another year, I couldn't resist taking this photo of part of todays washing!!
Once dry the Christmas T shirts will be packed away for next year.
It's Almost Over ....
The contents of my advent calender are now all in the makeup bag that was the final gift on Christmas morning. 
It's Almost Over ....
The empty calender is being saved for me to use next year for Alan.  I will keep my eyes open for little gifts to put into the boxes over the coming year, and hopefully M&S will do the same again next year so I can have another one too, as I absolutely loved this.
It's Almost Over ....
My favorite gift on Christmas morning was a box made up for us by my older son, which as well as containing yummy things to eat and brilliant items for daily use, included things from my childhood, that had been discovered tucked away in my ex's house and passed on to Simon for giving to me ... saving it for Christmas was a brilliant idea ... it made my day.
It's Almost Over ....
Christmas lunch was a quiet affair, cooked together after our daily chores had been completed, and tucked into on our new little table, with Christmas songs playing in the background and the sound of the dogs chewing on new Christmas bones at our feet.
It's Almost Over ....
The most successful show of the holiday break was 'Snow Bears'.  The dogs absorbed every minute of the tale of a mommy polar bear trekking across the ice with her twin cubs.
It's Almost Over ....
A full hour passed of doggy silence and concentration as the adventures unfolded.
We had quite a television based Christmas this year with the bad weather outside meaning chores were done as quickly as possible and doggies walked as and when we could, but luckily it's been quite good on the old box and I've been drinking in every detail of the BBC adaptation  of Little Women which unfortunately finishes tonight. 
Our Christmas isn't completely over yet though, as my youngest son is coming for a quick overnight visit between shifts from work this weekend.  As an emergency services worker, his Christmas dinner on the actual day was a hastily grabbed and very solitary bowl of pasta, so I think an action replay of our dinner would be a grand way to end our festive celebrations.
I hope each and every one of you had a wonderful Christmas, and can I just say a massive thank you for all the Christmas wishes on the comments on the last post.  It was so lovely to hear from so many people all over the world.
