I am beginning to feel excited now for Christmas, all the presents are bought and wrapped and after just watching my most favourite film EVER The Christmas Carol, I am full of the Christmas spirit. The Christmas Carol is probably the only film I have watched over and over again mainly because they bring out new versions every year. I think that the one with Alistair Simms will always be special to me. I must have read the book dozens of times too. I love Charles Dickens and he is one person that I would have liked to have met.
We were supposed to be going to the Christmas apartment get together today but we had to cancel due to me having picked up a tummy bug! No way am I going to risk passing that on to the other residents. John is quite pleased, not that I have a bug! but because he is not into gatherings with people he does not know.
Not that it is going to dampen my happiness, it’s pointless being moody. John took down all the food we had purchased and they understood and I am sure they will have a good time. Perhaps next year. We are determined that this will be our last house move and YES we have said that before, after moving four times in the last two years !
The build up to Christmas is the best part, along with Christmas Eve which is my most favourite day of the year. You can feel the excitement in the air and we can see the excitement on our grandchildrens faces.
Although we have not gone over the top decorating in our lounge, due to just moving in and decorating we have taken advantage of the balcony which looks so pretty. Well another Christmas movie is coming on TV so I will love you and leave you.
Keep smiling 😉
