I’ve always found writing my blog to be cathartic.  So the fact that I haven’t written one in over 9 months either means that life has been going swimmingly or that I have been majorly over sharing with friends, acquaintances and occasionally near strangers (sorry about that!).  But today I’m feeling sad and deserted, so today I am going to share with all of you.

I love Christmas, it is without a doubt, my favorite time of the year.  The lights, the excitement, the over (seriously over) indulging.  And this year was even better, as we shared it with my in-laws.  “Eeek,” I hear you scream, “how awful.”  But you see these aren’t your typical crusty oldies who sit around complaining about the youth of today, eating all your best biscuits and getting under your feet.  They’re the kind of oldies (sorry FIL/MIL) who are actually useful.  They’re here when I need them and go off and amuse themselves when I don’t, they vacuum and clean up, they’ll even look after my 2 overly energetic and crazy kids and even more overly energetic and crazy dog while the hubby and I take a mini break in a hotel, stay up late, bar crawl like we’re in our twenties again and then lay in bed until way past 7am.  Best of all, they’re actually really fun to hang out with, (unfortunately I didn’t get a video of Grandad getting down and funky to Wii Just Dance as proof, so you’ll have to just take my word for it).

But as of 3 hours ago they departed back to England and to top it all, my dear hubby is away on a business trip.  I’d like to say the house is quiet and empty, but I still have my 2 overly energetic crazy kids and one even more overly energetic and crazy dog, but there is definitely that feeling you get after a much anticipated party where the balloons have lost their lift and are barely bouncing themselves off the floor.

On the bright side though, the Christmas tree is still on with lights ablaze, there is still plenty of wine, half a tin of chocolates, no one is here that I have to share it with and the diet doesn’t start until Monday.  Party on!
