I've therefore been reflecting on the some of the lovely things that we did over the holidays:
- spending new year's eve watching the Creation Theatre's production of "A Christmas Carol" (great fun!) followed by dinner at our local Wildwood Restaurant (very tasty!)
- having a lovely, family evening out at the cinema seeing "Pitch Perfect 3" (just as funny as the first two!)
- meeting friends for a walk up Boar's Hill followed by afternoon tea (great company and delicious homemade Christmas cake)
- enjoying lots of family time watching films, playing Scrabble and eating German Christmas biscuits.
We've also got some lovely things to look forward to. We've just booked our family summer holiday (11 nights in Montenegro, which looks beautiful), we'll be watching our oldest daughter playing Juliet in the school production of "Romeo and Juliet", we're booked in to see the play "Blood Brothers" in February, and much more.
That should be enough to get us through this dull and cold January!
