December playtime

Our first few days of December have been seen through a child’s eyes this year. Having our 10 month old grandson staying for a few days means we have had an excuse to visit real life reindeer and enjoy Christmas lights and decorations without the weary cynicism  which can arise at this time of year.

A bright walk beside the sea in December sunshine, followed by lunch at the beach side restaurant was even more fun with William’s smile to entertain us. 135___12

Now he’s heading home, the toys are packed away, his giggles have gone and I am left to contemplate the Christmas Card list, and other “must dos”.

Even in the context of bleak news stories and global upheavals, children are such a wonderful reminder to enjoy what we have, right now in this moment. Perhaps we could all do well to enter into the serious business of fun which children do so well! Keep playing…
