    Dear fellow TPers,

    I doubt I'll be online tomorrow...can't think why...but three little reasons spring to mind! We were woken this morning with "Happy Christmas Eve!!!", and that was 3 high pitched voices, plus a sleepy grunt from my left!

    I wish you all peace and happiness in whatever form it comes this Christmas. For some, it will be watching the faces of the children, for others, just enjoying the quiet, and for many enjoying just a smile from a loved one. I know for a lot of us, it will be extraordinarily hard. I just hope that one good thing happens to make it a special day.

    So thank you from me and mine for helping me through this year and I will be thinking of you ALL tomorrow, but especially my lovely mum.

    I will raise a toast to my dad, who I miss too much, and to all of us who have an empty chair at Christmas lunch. But I don't want to be sad, so I will smile as I remember the many Christmas meals I shared with my mum & dad, and know what an honour it was to have been able to. Hope you can all do something similar :).

    Peace to you all, and I will reunite with my TP family again in the New year (if not a little before!!)

    Lots of love, and thanks

    Merry Chritmas Annie, and everyone else! I'm spending the holiday with my children and grandchildren down south.I do feel guilty that I'm not seeing Dad on Christmas Day, but I've been persuaded that he'll have a good day being looked after. I really need to give some time to the children and grandchildren this year, as I've neglected them in recent years while looking after Dad and MIL. We just need to recharge batteries for once. Merry Christmas to one and all, and thanks for everyone who has given me support over the past difficult year!
    Love from Sue xxx
