This will be my last Christmas. I would like to share some of the highlights with you...
Having a cuppa with Kate, Ned, Tess, Ruby and Cosy. Cosy Blossom read us a poem about a box which she had written. Last year she could barely read and suddenly as if by magic Cosy has Blossomed in homage to her name. They also gave me a stunning bicycle book on the history of cycling. The photographs are breathtaking.
Eating Manuka Honey which Ell gave me as a gift. (Manuka honey is a miracle honey made by friendly bees in New Zealand that hang out on the manuka bush.)
Making photographs of the family pulling ridiculous faces on Christmas Day was lots of fun.
Witnessing my nephew Matt reduced to tears as he opened a framed picture of him and his Grandad which I had given him as a gift. We held each other and cried together. I hope that I am teaching him the real meaning of being a man in the world.
Telling Mum how much I appreciate having her in my life.
Asking Ell to marry me in a snowy childrens playground in Bold Venture Park. She said YES. Yippee!
