For some of us it is not the easiest day of the year.
I have run the gamut of emotions over being single at Christmas.
I have felt lonely being the only one at the table without a partner.
I have felt jealous as my siblings displayed the special gifts from their partners.
I have experienced joy watching nieces and nephews, and now, great nieces and nephews believing in the magic of Christmas.
I have felt so lucky to have a loving Family who care for me and make me laugh at all family occasions. This year I have chosen to be home alone after a lovely get together with my dad and sister, brother in law and a family friend.
I got to do the cooking using the recipe I gave you last week with the vegetables cooled and mixed with mayonnaise for a summer Christmas here in Australia.
Today dad and one sister will be with her sons and daughter and grandchildren.
The other sister and brother in law with their blended brood.
My choice to be alone is purely selfish. I didn’t want to travel on Boxing Day so I can watch every ball of the opening day of the cricket.
I wish you all the best for the day wherever you are.
Love from Louise and Single Serve.
