Well boxing day is here! (History of boxing day below*). This is the start of the weird period between Christmas and New Year where no one knows their name or if they are coming or going! It's not Christmas anymore but it's not the start of the New Year. It's that weird time of nothingness! Nothing is happening. You kinda feel like something should be happening and yet aren't too sure what! It's a time for catching up with family except we can't as a nation due to the corona. Some treat it as time for gentleness and calm with self. Lots of reading, walking and crafting/project time. And yet some would still feel like there is only so much walking, watching films and down time one can have! I think there is the weird feeling too added to it that we are going to be returning home to lockdown. So we can't even go shopping like I usually would do with the kids when they are on holidays. Take them to down and go round the shops. Need to measure their feet for new shoes and yet the shops are closed so not sure how we are going to do that! Our current plan is still to travel home tomorrow. There is talk of snow Monday so if there is any vague chance of us getting any I wanna be there for it! Now we will see nothing will come of it lol!
(* For those of you not from the UK and the like Boxing day dates back to Victorian times. Rich people used to box up gifts of things for poor people. Rich people used to give boxes to their servants too as a Christmas gift and give them the day off. And Churches used to hand out gifts in boxes to people who were poor.

I won't update on Christmas day today as I obviously have some pics to share so will do that in a different one. Needless to say it was a quiet but good day. We are at mother-in-laws house who lives alone and she invited around another old lady who also lives alone. She was most happy to be invited with us so she wasn't alone and I think the kids brightened up her day! Christmas isn't really Christmas without kids around! The kids had faaar too many presents and there is still more at home to open as I didn't pack them all!
