And here we are it’s Christmas week, only a few more sleeps before the big man comes and we’re all tucking in to our turkey dinners!! We hope you have enjoyed our Christmas Gift Guide so far and we made your shopping even a little bit easier. As this is our last instalment of the gift guide we thought long and hard about what we wanted to recommend. We wanted something that would mean a lot to receive, that doesn’t cost a fortune and that’s easy to get now that we’re down to the last few shopping days…
….and then it dawned on us. The best present any of us can give to our loved ones is to be just that……be present. Christmas is such a magical time of the year. For many of us it might be the only time we have our families all together under one roof and we need to savour these times. These days time seems to be going so fast and life is flying by in a whirlwind of work, busy weekends, housework and other boring stuff. So while we have the chance we should spend as much time with loved ones as possible. One day the kids won’t be kids anymore or maybe some of our nearest and dearest won’t be here anymore and we’ll be wishing for these days again. Even if it’s just a Christmas movie on the couch with the kiddies, a nice walk with Mam, a long catch-up with your bestie or a sneaky drink with Grandad, these moments make precious memories.
Christmas can be a tough time for some and while it’s all merriment and joy for lots of people it can be a lonely sad time for others who may be going through a difficult time or living away from home. If you think someone you know might not be having the best Christmas maybe drop them a text to see how they are or call in for a cuppa….you could make all the difference to that persons Christmas with the simple gift of a friendship.
While we’re feeling all soppy we just want to say a massive THANK YOU to all of you for making the first few months of Lisas’Livin’Pretty the success it was. When we started the blog all we hoped was for people to read it and we’ve been blown away by all your support. We’ve had a blast and are super excited to see what 2016 has in store.
And lastly we want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, we hope Santy comes and it’s everything you wished for and more. After all it’s the most wonderful time of the year……..
Until next time,
Live Pretty xx
