21st December 2011
I was thinking back to this time last year. So much has changed and all of it makes me smile. This time last year I was counting down the days to his arrival. There were 5 days left before he was due to get here and, like all the times I had waited to be with him before, the last few days seemed to drag by so very slowly. I had one thing on my mind this time last year and it wasn’t presents, or Christmas dinner or mince pies but Heathrow airport and his kiss. This year things are definitely different. The being apart is over and I don’t have to wait anxiously for weeks on end to go by to spend just a few short weeks with him any more, now I wake up by his side every morning.
So am I more focused on Christmas dinner and presents and all that stuff this year? Well it certainly feels less stressful and lot more fun and it is wonderful to be getting things ready together, planning food and trips and a Christmas Eve pizza, snuggled up in each others arms, on the sofa watching a soppy movie. It will be our first ever Christmas as husband and wife and it will be the first ever Christmas where we have woken up next to each other and I can’t wait. To be brutally honest I couldn’t care less about presents, don’t get me wrong, I am very excited at the thought of actually getting some this year and from someone who I know will have put a great deal of thought into them but the best present of all will be that moment on Christmas morning when I wake up and he draws me into his arms and I breathe in the scent of him and we lay together and just enjoy the moment before it is time to go and find out what Santa has left for everyone.
