Already Christmas seems so far away. We spend so much time anticipating it and then it is gone. It has been great though. I loved having the family all back together again. The cottage felt complete. We have been able to relax and enjoy the days stretching ahead, we have shared wonderful meals with friends, been on exhilarating walks and slept in to our hearts content. Now it's time to reintroduce the routine gently. The girls have returned to school, Sam is back at Uni and I must think about work again.
