June 22nd

Happy Winter and Summer Solstice Everyone!

It's the depths of winter here, and I for one am most pleased to be celebrating the longest night of the year.  Because from tomorrow, the days get that little bit longer, edging us closer and closer to the warmer nights and the longer days - Yay!

Lucy ooohed and aaaaahed at the tree today.

Then we played with sparklers!

And then she listened to a bedtime story about what solstice is about, interspersed (for dramatic effect!) with the bang of a drum.  I enjoyed very much, watching her eyes get bigger and wider.

While she didn't like the idea so much, of the longest night (thinking she'd have to stay in bed longer than usual *smile*), she did enjoy the idea of the coming longer and warmer days ("water play at the beach again soon, Mama?").

Many blessings to you and your loved ones tonight.
Enjoy a glass or two of mulled wine, on me *wink*.
