Christmas for me has become just another gimmick in the last 5 years, with the exception of 2007 spending my first Christmas in a new relationship when we were carefree and *young*…
Most years I feel that the toys and chocolates are brought out way too early and by the time Christmas comes it’s not as new and exciting and leaves me feeling somewhat let down.
However this year I’m really excited and nothing will dampen the mood. Having a child let’s you re live the excitement, the lights, the colours, the smells… Yes I know he will only be 10 months old but I know that every Christmas for the next 10 years will be even more exciting and that makes me feel really warm inside.
Our first Christmas as a *proper* family! And Luke will wake and spend Christmas day with all the people important to him and I cannot wait!
