My Christmas

Christmas at the Vicarage is getting simpler by the year!

As expected, December is a very busy month for the Mhinisteir. I will be glad to have him home once he finishes his final service on Christmas Day.

I usually tend to the presents and the Christmas meal. Over the past few years, I have been forced to keep everything to the bare minimum due to health reasons. I will be going to the midnight service.

The presents have been mostly distributed. Lunch will be a simple roast chicken. The Mhinisteir has said that he wants to catch up on his sleep after lunch so his wish will be granted.

Holidaying at home is not an option if you live in a Vicarage so we will get away at some point for a good few days of peace and quiet.

I never post pictures on my blog but since it is the festive season, I will bend the rules and post some pictures.

Presents!!! Last year, I used FT Weekend newspapers as my gift wrap. This year I have used the FT Magazine how to spend it as my gift wrap and the FT Weekly magazine to make the bow.

Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us – Matthew 1:23

Merry Christmas!
