Re: I smiled because...

Both daughters, sil and grand-children all coming for Christmas - first time we will be all together since we bought the house in 1999, as one daughter was living abroad and had to work at Christmas- all my dreams come true.
Happy Gwanny here

That's lovely Odile I'm really happy for you.
I didn't realise you'd bought the house so long ago, I thought it was more recently than that for some reason. Your first Christmas together in 15 years will really be something to celebrate.

Fantastic!

I had my parents, brothers family, sisters family over in 2011, Christmas lunch totalled 17 including my OH side. This year no Papa but mum and my brothers family will be across. Not 17 but 12, one might say a sucker for punishment!
Manic kids everywhere...

Re: I smiled because...

Flipping heck- you catch me every time BM- was tooooo excited at the news. We bought the house Oct 2007- when we had the family over for Xmas on borrowed bit of furniture, banana boxes, folding and airbeds, etc... and we moved in March 2009.

I wasn't trying to catch you out at all. I was really pleased for to be all together for Christmas after so long and I still am. 7 years is still a really long time and I can understand your excitement, we were just the same a couple of years ago when the two 'big' boys and their OHs plus granddaughter came over for Christmas.

No, they are okey) and I need it now as it seems that i'll be packing boxes and leaving Switzerland around holidays and won't be able to enjoy them fully. So I'd rather start earlier this year))

Met the guy in charge of the library at the Ecole hôtelière of Lausanne.

He accepted to be the expert I need and to help me during my formation, which is absolutely great.

Last week I bought some proper brown sugar from a lovely EF member. I am now sitting here with a tall glass of milk and a plate of fresh-from-the-oven chocolate chip cookies. Perfect cure for this crap weather!

Re: I smiled because...

I'm happy because I've accepted the loss of many family members over the last decade. I'm able to move on and cherish what I have and look forward to the new and different festive season.

Re: I smiled because...

That's is the hardest, isn't it? Lost both my parents, one just before, and one just after we moved here- and 2 brothers to really stupid circumstances (over which I had no control)- but coming to term with this too.

Hugs and Joyeux Noël to you and yours too.
