  1. It has indeed been a funny old year. For me too. I really hope that next year is so much better for you Alison. I have a funny feeling it will be. And you know what, Christmas is just a day in the year, as long as any other. Only difference is that we stuff ourselves with turkey and watch even more rubbishy television than usual. You'll get through it and come January 1st you can fill your home with delicious spring blooms and look forward to a new adventure in 2007.
    By the way, I can definitely recommend giving your blog a new look. I've done just that with mine this week and it made me feel like the new year had started already. It gave me that sort of uncluttered and enthusiastic feeling. Actually, I probably shouldn't admit it but it made me want Christmas to be over so I could get on with all the things I have planned for 2007.

  3. To all those who worry over you: I too, randomly read your "little changing world"…..and I think you are doing Grand!! I haven't gotten my Gingerbread House baked yet. And I think I may just go buy one, now wouldn't that throw the relatives into a tissy?

  5. Must have been something in the air this year – ours was a funny sort of year too. I'm so happy that 2007 is nearing, and hoping that it will be better than this year.
    It sounds to me that you are doing pretty good right now, despite the lack of Christmas gifts. For all you've been doing, you are wonderfully sane and handling the world in your own way of coping.
    Let the relatives spout their "advice" but live your life the way you see fit my dear.
    Hope your Christmas brings a bit of magic to your heart.

  7. It has indeed been a funny sort of year for you….but, it seems that you are doing just what you should at the end of a year like this….realize it is what it is & get through it the best way you know how. And a lovely way it is. Here is to a wonderful 2007!

  9. I was just thinking what a funny old year it had been for my family, too. Who knows what 2007 will bring? But I know whether you change the looks of your beautiful Brocante Home or not, we'll continue to enjoy reading your wonderful words. Hugs and Hugs from Missouri to you and Finley, your Mum and Dad, Helen and your sweet nephew, and to anyone else you choose to share them with. Take care, Sweetie!

  11. This is one good post, mainly because as hard as I try to feel Christmassy for our kids, it's been an odd year here too. As moods and personalities rear their ugly heads during the holidays and I just want to hide out with my family here. The rest can go!

  13. You are funny.. We would appreciate your new blog colors. HA! 🙂 I love your Meg Ryan "You've Got Mail" reference.. I am totally the same way and use that movie as a reference quite often. Hubby on the other hand is more of a Tom Hanks type.. not that that's bad of course but we certainly don't always see eye to eye.
    Merry Christmas to you and may you feel the magic this weekend (or if not.. may it go by quickly for you.) Here's to a wonderful new year!
