'Tis the Season

A little more Christmas bokeh

Christmas sparkle

Last year we made a decision to cut back a little at Christmas. The result was we still had a lovely Christmas, we just wasted less and appreciated more.

This year we are taking the same approach.  And I although I am behind with everything, I am letting it go, trying to enjoy the moment and trusting that all will be well whether I've written the Christmas cards or not.

This year we have the added bonus of a little extra holiday time for the Moo.  Time for rest and relaxation, a little baking, meeting up with friends, time to take in the lights and let ourselves in to the season gently.

At this time of year, when we have short, grey days the sparkle and twinkle of the Christmas lights is one of my favourite things.

How about you?

A Little Focus

Slowly, slowly it's beginning to look like Christmas around here.

How is it in your part of the world?

Friday's Letter

Own your Story

Dear Week,

Looking back, I feel like I've been quite unfocused and unproductive.  But many household things have been fixed (mostly not actually by me I will admit, but I have made a lot of cups of tea which totally contributed....) and I have been working on my Unravelling workbook and my Gifts of Imperfection course (including the making up of my Mantra - above).  I also have several bags of parcels, wrapped and ready to be delivered tomorrow which is a good chunk of my Christmas shopping sorted.

So, Week, you weren't exciting but looking back I think I have achieved more than I originally thought.   Next week, however, I am devoting to PLAY.  Decorating, baking, photography, fun with friends. I am feeling the need to make stuff.  Probably with glitter.

'Tis the season....

Love, Me

 Happy weekend. Would love to know what your favourite Christmas bake or craft is. :)

The first of the lights

The first of the the lights

Here they are.  The first of the lights brightening up a grey and dreary day.

And here are a couple of links you might like for the start of this season:

Susannah Conway's Unravelling workbook for 2014.  I am doing this for the third year and I really recommend it. (The emphasis is on intention rather than overly ambitious lists ;).

Alisa Burke is offering a free course called Holiday Play over December which is basically a mash up of her favourite lessons from her other online courses. The overwhelm will hit soon, but it looks like a fun thing to have a dabble in as time permits.

How about you?  What are you up to?
