Family Fun

Christmas is one of those special occasions where families no matter how far apart they live they try to reach out to each other to maintain that special bond.

Whether it be through a well worded greetings card, telephone call or visit, these small gestures speak volumes.

I myself am guilty of not always taking time enough to show the people I love just how much they mean to me. Sometimes life just gets in the way.  This is not an excuse but it is a reason.

Staying in touch and spending time together with our families is not always an easy thing to do. With us and some of my partners family living in the Netherlands and the rest of the family living as far a field as Scotland, the South of England and France we tend to spread ourselves pretty thinly.

This year very sadly my granddad passed away and under sad circumstances my family came together. Sometimes it takes something like this to make you see what is really important.  After spending time together we realised that it had been about 10 years since we had spent a Christmas day together with my eldest brother and his family.  We decided to put this right there and then and arranged to spend this Christmas together.

Girls Enjoying Family Time In The Snow

 

I am so glad we did this, we all had an absolutely fabulous time and our girls were totally spoilt by everyone but the best thing was to see our daughters enjoying time with their uncle, aunt and big grown up cousins.

 I’ve not worked out the fine print of my ‘New Years Resolutions’ yet but one of them has to be to make more of an effort and not let that special bond fade.
