It came around quickly this year, our annual framily Christmas weekend away. Each year, we try to take a weekend out before the busy season of Christmas and head away with 3 other families for a weekend of hanging out, eating all the good things and properly getting to catch up. Each year, much the same as the previous with all the chaos and energy that 8 adults and 6 children bring is a great way to gently ring in the festive cheer and give it a slow start instead of what often feels like a thump in the head. I'm grateful for these people - for the picture we paint of friends as family, the mutual respect, the humour and the understanding.
We came, we stopped, we took things slow, we refereed fights between each other's kids, we talked late by the fire, we stretched our legs in the sopping rain, we danced in the kitchen, broke bread round the table and gave thanks.
And finally, our 3rd giveaway winner of the £100 Bricolage Quilts voucher can be revealed as..........
Congratulations Sarah! Your voucher will be winging it's way to you ASAP!
