Christmas is Coming {The Ordinary Moments}

Welcome back to another week of the Ordinary Moments. If you haven’t joined in before this is a weekly linky that launches every Sunday morning and is open until midnight on the following Saturday. It’s a linky that celebrates any ordinary moments in your life – or the not so ordinary some weeks too. Basically – anything goes. I’ll be sharing and commenting on the posts that are linked up during the week and there’s a badge at the bottom of the post if you’d like to add it to yours too.

This week has been one long, emotional week. I had some bad family news and that, along with the tier announcements, really just hit me quite hard. But, I was focused on yesterday, getting to Saturday, where we planned to put up the Christmas tree and have a whole day of festiveness. It definitely helped having something to look forward to.

So we spent yesterday putting up trees and lights, covering the house in festive nick nacks and having a fireplace crackling away on the TV in the background. It was bliss.

We had a festive lunch delivered which was a really nice interval. We ate it whilst watching The Christmas Chronicles on Netflix and then snuggling up on the sofa.

It was the kind of day I really needed and it kicked off our festive season perfectly. We now have Christmas PJs out, Christmas jumpers out and even Christmas tea towels and napkins. I am going to be full steam ahead in festive spirit as, right now, it’s the only thing keeping me going.

I love this time of year and I refuse to let the pandemic spoil it. Father Christmas can still deliver his presents, we can still leave out mince pies on Christmas Eve and the children are still going to have a wonderful Christmas. Things could definitely be worse.
