So I’ve been trying my hardest to get in the mood for Christmas, it’s been hard this year because of Covid and all it’s effects on the world. And personally, the chance is I won’t be spending any time with my family this year.
But i’m trying… italso helped that a big box of xmas pressies arrived this morning!
I put up the Christmas Tree , I’ve gone for ‘less is more’ this year and there are 3 Richard Armitage baubles adorning my tree;
I’ve put up a temporary mantelpiece to make a festive display , including putting my cards on the chimney;
I have a couple brilliant Richie Holiday Card Swap ones on display
left to right; my card design, Paula/Riepu, Certified Moody and Nokisuu
At work I’ve been wearing festive socks and hair grips and even put on a dedicated Christmas music radio station.
I also did some cross stitch:
Some tunes seems even more poignant this year;
some of the more traditional tunes however cheer me right up
some songs have been with me a long time and give me the feels every time I hear them and even though it’s actually an anti-war tune, it’s my fave Christmas song
I only own one Christmas album, amusingly the one Armitage recently tweeted about. I bought it wen it was released, can’t beat Annie Lennox and I loved the style it’s recorded in- a quasi medieval style and this video is gorgeous
Hope, you my dear readers are holding onto the positives and have some of the Christmas spirit too x
