christmas hopes.

devon christmas tree

I always find that at Christmas, I end up thinking about the people I've lost. We lost Grandad a few days before Christmas 11 years ago, and earlier this year Granny followed him. It's going to be really strange not having her around on the big day, but I think it's important to try and have a fun time surrounded by all the lovely people we have left. 

With that in mind, these are the things I'm looking forward to this year..

• celebrating with friends, old and new.
• making the rest of mum's house look festive (we've already done the tree!)
• having some time off work.
• catching the end of the last Totnes Christmas Market.
• exchanging gifts with Doug.
• baking lots of biscuits and other yummy treats. 
• making people feel special.
• seeing my niece and how excited she is on Christmas morning.
• eating all the food
• thinking about new year's resolutions & hopes for 2015. 

What are you looking forward to this Christmas? 

If you or someone you know is struggling with loneliness/grief, read this post I wrote last year, and hold hands.

  10. What a great list, I've recently lost my grandad, a few weeks before christmas! I've found it hard to focus on Christmas but this post has made me remember that there are still things to enjoy :)

  11. I understand you perfectly. I lost my grandpa earlier this year and it kinda marked my entire year. His birthday was the hardest and he is part of the reason why I didn't go home for the holidays this year. It was a bit of a selfish decision but I am really really new to death.

  12. great list but also just had to say what a beautiful tree! stumbled across your blog from 's blog roll list, and followed straight away. also live in Bristol :)
