Busy Doing Nothing

These first few days after Christmas are some of my very favourite of the whole year. I do love that holiday rush to fit in friends and relations before the Big Day; but once it's gone, I relish the thought of the four of us closing the door and rediscovering just how much we enjoy each others company. We have plenty of food, and more than enough new entertainment, to keep us going for the rest of the week. We've been feasting and laughing and relaxing. And we hope that you have too. Later today, we'll venture out for a walk by the river. But no further than that. The Sales hold no attraction just yet, when we are still so delighted with our gifts. I'm going to finish up the final few pages of my Christmas Journal, too, and catch up on some blogs. I'm looking forward to reading about your festivities. And then, I think, I'll stretch out on the sofa and enjoy a film. Pass the remote, please, and let's open the chocolates..

Hope you enjoy your down time! We're having similarly good times here in Southern California. Letting my Christmas Journal run a little longer on my blog until I get inspired to start back up again.

More amazing pages - I *love* the fishies!! We've been having a couple of quiet days too, but looking forward to spending a bit of time with wider family next :-)

Glad you're having such a nice relaxing time, Sian. Love your pages, too, and looking forward to seeing the rest. :) x alexa

I like your JYC pages, Sian. It's nice to see other people who don't always put a photo on their pages - it's a "real Journal" then, rather than a photo page, but I like it!

The fish page is fun. Love the idea of a canvas background too.

Sounds like a great plan, but it hasn't happened around here yet! Your Christmas pages are great.

Loving the fishes! And I agree, whilst the excitement of the 'big day' is fun, it is kind of nice to get back to quiet normality and enjoy family time.
Bring on the New Year!

I agree Sian - this is also my favourite week of the year - it is like living in a time warp and I never seem to know what day it is ... in a good way of course!
