  63. Helen S says:

    A myriad of things – making gifts (usually something sweet) with the grandchildren for their mummies and daddies, which usually ends up in me being covered in flour snowman-like (but they’re only young for so little time), helping them make and build the gingerbread house,, wrapping the presents and the walks in the snow (unfortunately we rarely get snow before Christmas but I can but hope).

  64. Christine Hobbs says:

    It was dads birthday in December he would have been 91! unfortunately he died in July this year but I will still be celebrating his day on 28th December.

To me he was my December Diamond no other man will sparkle the same x

    When I think of December I think of Christmas and family and the warm fuzzy feeling I get but for me my absolute favourite thing is the cold crisp mornings, I love to wrap up warm and walk at these times, I love the frost glittering across the grass, the sight of my breath hitting the cool air, its a peaceful time before the world arises.
