Having children, or having some in the family renews the Christmas excitement I find. It is also a time to remember loved ones who are no longer with us. We all have someone we miss terribly. I miss my father who died nearly 9 years ago. I was very close to him, and Christmas was always a fun time in our household. As I got older, I saw choosing his present as a challenge. It had to be funny, witty or a bit silly.
My finest hour had to be the Christmas before he got ill, when I bought him the singing 'Karma Chameleon' phone from a BT advert. It was totally ridiculous, and also hilarious!
It's magical to see his humour in my daughters' personalities, especially at this time of year.
Wishing you a fabulous Christmas, and very best wishes for the New Year,
