I'm feeling very sorry for myself at the moment. I've had one cold after another and the current one made me sleep until midday yesterday, which is unheard of for me.

Luckily my mum had been staying with us for a long weekend (and spoiling us all rotten!!) so I could lay in bed and listen to the amazing sounds of her and Alfie playing together in his room.

I loved having mum over, and even if she hadn't have filled the fridge, cleaned the house and bought us a ton of Christmas pressies I would still have loved having her up because it's in the reflection of those people who don't see him every day that I really see the differences in him.

This Father Alfie-mas is something Keith's mum bought him last year.
 Hanging it on the tree made me think about everything that has happened in the last year - the family who are still with us, and the friends who are not - and how fast it has gone. Is it always like this when you have children? Does time always vanish in a hail of everyday miracles?

This is another new tree ornament courtesy of my mum. This year we can't all be together on Christmas day, but if we manage to find somewhere snowy to go away to next year (Keith's current dream) this will definitely make the cut of "travel decorations"
