Merry Christmas!

It's nearly Christmas! I've been really looking forward to it this year. I've always enjoyed Christmas, but having the kids just makes you see things through their eyes. Robbie and Emma are old enough to know a bit about what to expect now, and they're so excited about tomorrow. I'm looking forward to them opening their presents too, and then going out for a little walk before an enormous, delicious lunch, followed by cake, mince pies, chocolate etc and maybe a few games before plopping down on the sofa with a drink to watch some Christmas tv, some more mince pies...

I had a good run yesterday - 6.2 miles in strong winds, drizzle and under dark skies, it was wonderful! Although the temperatures have been pretty mild here, it felt like a nice wintry run as the wind blew right up my nose. I've run about 13/14 miles each week this month, but I'm not sure what I'll manage next week. We'll be visiting family after Christmas, so I'll be fitting the running in whenever I get the chance.

Hope all readers of this blog have a lovely Christmas and a wonderful new Year!


  1. Merry Christmas Liz. I love the photos of your kids - you can see how excited they are and that's the best part of Christmas. You're going to have a wonderful day of fun and presents and too much food.

  2. Christmas really is special with kids in the house - I'm sure you had a great day! Good for you for getting out for that run, too!

  3. Lovely cookies! I made my dough but we have yet to cut out, cook, and decorate. Ha! Ok though because they will be fun to enjoy this week. Hope you had a very merry Christmas.

  4. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! Enjoy visiting with family-- we just got back and are finally catching up again with normal life, but had a great time!

  5. Merry Christmas. Hope it was a good one :-)
