Every year, I find it harder and harder to get myself in the holiday mood. I’m not sure why. I love when everything is ‘gezellig’ (there’s no English word so Dutch will have to do) but Christmas is here and I’m not feeling festive. Maybe an afternoon of making desserts will remedy that. (We celebrate Christmas Eve at my husband’s parents and I always bake something, I’m thinking apple crumble this year..)
This Christmas will be the first without my grand-father, I have no grand-parents left.. It sometimes just hits me that he’s really gone. It makes me sad but I have a really great family, I’m sure I’ll have a great time.
Next week, we’re going to London. Just for a day or two, no kids, just me and my husband. It will give us some much needed time for each other. I love London and I can’t wait to show him around. (He’s been there once but it’s been a while)
And suddenly there’s that one song, that one perfect song that does it, I’ve had it stuck in my head for a week now… and I don’t even mind. That song is Game of Bells by L.E.J. It’s inspired by the music of Game of Thrones and it’s perfect for how I feel right now, a little bit dark but still Christmassy.
I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a splendid New Year.
Enjoy the holidays, don’t hold back when it comes to dessert 😉. Life’s too short anyway..
Love you all!
