I've been pottering around blogland this afternoon and sending comments to friends old and new and thinking how happy I feel to read about all the things that make other people feel happy. From chocolates to Christmas trees and craft projects, it's a wonderful world isn't it?
So I decided to share a few things that are making me happy in Gibraltar today.
I have a pile of fresh oranges on a plate on my table. They have just come into season and are so fresh and juicy they can't be eaten in polite company. You need a plate and a pile of tissues and still have to clean up afterwards !
My Christmas cards are all written and ready to post. Most will have to battle with the snow in UK but some are staying here in Gibraltar and a few winging their way to more far flung friends.
I have put up my Christmas decorations, I love to be re-united with these old friends I haven't seen all year don't you? My daughter has inherited my enthusiasm and shrieks " I forgot about the snowman that holds the stars !" even more excitedly than I do ( poor neighbours ..)
Christmas Carols always make me happy too. I love listening but most of all I love singing along. Have I told you I sing in a choir ? We are performing on Friday night in St Michael's Cave with the regiment band. I will try and remember to take photos.
It's a great thing to think of happy things- it has taken my mind off the list of "things I haven't done yet for Christmas "
Wishing you happiness too
