JYC is here!

I'm back - two posts in one day!!

Just a very quick one to share my first page from Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas class!

Today is our manifesto, our promise to take back our Christmas and really enjoy every moment of the season.  This is my first year and I am hoping to do a page every day from today to Twelth Night.

Here is today's entry...

For those who want to read it the journalling says:
"I am taking part in Journal Your Christmas for the first time this year as I love the idea of recording what Christmas means to me at this time in my life.
I make a promise to myself now that I will journal every day.  I hope that this will remind me that the season is not just about the presents we open Christmas morning (especially as this year may not be as plentiful - £123/week maternity pay really does not stretch far!!)
I will not forget what is important about Christmas in the stress of returning to work in the middle of December and by committing now to doing one page every day I am making for myself a daily reminder that work isn’t everything and that there’s still lots to look forward to.
This journal will serve as a way to share my thoughts and memories of Hannah’s first Christmas and in years to come I will be able to look back and see what may have changed about our Christmas and even what may have stayed the same, forming new traditions, as our family develops.
So here it is… Merry Christmas!! "
Night all,
