The Christmas tree is a symbol of love, not money. There’s a kind of glory to them when they’re all lit up that exceeds anything all the money in the world could buy.Andy Rooney
Ben, the dogs and I spent time under the Christmas Tree last night – or at least we lay on the carpet in the dark as close to the tree as we could get (because it’s a SMALL tree), the fairy lights on, enjoying the special Christmas Tree Feeling as a little family.
It was so good to slow down, and to relax into that feeling.
That feeling of love, and of togetherness.
The feeling that as long as we have each other that is always, and ever, enough.
I hope that wherever you are, and whatever your beliefs, that you are able to feel the love we beamed out into the world.

In the spirit of keeping it real I must also confess to taking this pic early this morning, because every pic I took last night also included a certain dog licking his bum, which was unnoticed by me at the time (it was dark!), and which didn’t really capture the vibe I wanted. LOL. Dogs! I know you’ll understand and appreciate that!
We all have at least one family member like that, when it’s photo time, right?
It reminds me of when we were kids, and someone would always do ‘ears’ behind someone’s head or pull a face in what was supposed to be a ‘proper’ family photo. I love these pics now best of all, don’t you?
Whether you were the kid who rebelled, or the kid who tried their best, know that you are always welcome under our Tree,
Lots of love, tinsel, Christmas lights and some excellent rum balls, Nicole, Ben, Harry and Rufous (yeah, we know it was you, Rufie!) xx

Penny said: It‘s so nice to have something really special that was just for me. I felt so happy when I opened everything
Anne said: Hello Nicole I couldn’t find how to leave a compliment on Etsy so emailing you back. I opened my 2 orders this morning (journal and Mala beads).I opened the journal parcel first, stopped for a few seconds and went “Oh” to myself and I nearly had tears. The light smell of the jasmine stick; I was so taken back by the beautifully wrapped journal, card, the pocket with the red jasper crystal. I felt love and care coming from the parcel. I haven’t open anything given to me like this for a long time.
Jodie said: Thank-you Nicole!!My package arrived today & it’s just beautiful. I can’t wait to start using it. I think this is my 4th year now & I wouldn’t start the year without it. I also purchased one for my friend as a Christmas present & I was delighted that it was wrapped up so it can go straight under her tree. Thank-you also for your beautiful message – it bought a tear to my eye.
Why not give yourself a gift that is filled with love? If it’s a gift for someone else I can ship with a card from you if you leave me your message in the order. Go here: Nicole’s ETSY Shop

A post that made me feel sad and happy and all over the place
Photos that are ‘not right’ are the best! One of my favorites was taken by my youngest niece. She pointed the point and shoot at the olders in the family (my sister, myself, mum) and managed to remove most of our heads! Loved it and will NEVER delete it from the chip!
Boy…that post made me cry!! Thanks Nicole. Thanks Rufous for the laugh too🤣
