It's the day before the kids break up from school and I have tons of blog post ideas in my head but to be honest I can't be arsed to write any of them. It has got to that point when it feels more of an obligation than a joy to write and thus I am downing tools and having a Christmas break.
I'm not setting myself any rules or expectations, I'm just going to go with the flow. Bar wrapping my kids presents everything is done and ready, we have a couple of Christmas parties on Thursday and Friday and my parents and brother will arrive Friday afternoon to stay in the on-site cottage for a few nights. This is just perfect as it means we get to see loads of them but they still get time to relax after the kids have exhausted them and we don't all have to fall over each other in my small house.
Christmas should be pretty much perfect, as I'll be with the ones I love and also with the wider community that I live amongst. You can't knock sharing a traditional turkey Christmas dinner with 120 others, especially when you do not have to cook any of it. There will be loads of fun, games, indoor trampolining, movie watching, eating, chatting and on Boxing day shopping and ice-skating in Brighton.
We have already done our visiting for this festive season, so it really will just be a case of being home with no agenda and doing what I love best - relaxing with my family. I intend to get through at least one book, watch a few cheesy movies and eat some delicious chocolates.
Then once my family go home and real life emerges again I then fully expect to have to start the dreaded diet. I really can't get away with calling it healthy eating as drastic measures are needed as I am getting bigger and bigger and it is not good for anyone but especially my health.
So thank you all for reading, for commenting, for sharing and for being my friends through the year. I really appreciate all the people who stop by here time and time again.
Have an amazing joy filled Christmas and I pray you experience God's blessings in 2017.
Love, Mich xx

This is going to be my memory verse for 2017 - self-control is something I need to pray for and for fear and rejection to be gone.
