Crackers for Christmas
14 December 2016
Festive Greetings from Emma Lomax HQ!
I am not sure I will ever understand how yet another year has zipped by without me even drawing a breath, but here we are again; tree down, decs up. I have finally decided that this year will be the first year that I fully embrace the Christmas Limbo week. The week nestled between Christmas and New Year that never even knows what it is. I often find myself flitting between wishing that we could all just get back to normal and then reprimanding myself for wishing it away. After all, it is the only legitimate time of the year when nobody bats an eyelid that you are drinking champagne for breakfast in your PJs.
I’ve been inspired by a friend I visited recently, who had hung 24 little stocking pouches on her mantelpiece. But, instead of taking something out, you put something in. A reverse advent calendar if you will. She and her twins write something down that they are grateful for each day and put it into the pouches. They are simple things like the kids’ achievements at school, a lovely meal or a trip to the park on a sunny autumnal day. It was a real celebration of good news and positivity and a lovely thing to be able to look back on together at the end of the month as well as being a keepsake in that delicious box of childhood memories.
I have two big accomplishments this year that I will be reflecting on during Limbo Week. At the beginning of the year, I started working with some fantastic distributors around the world. This has meant that my bags have been able to go global; something I could never have imagined even 18 months ago. Then, in November, baby Lilly arrived, so the year really has been book-ended by two life changing events. I might even raise a little glass of bubbles to myself so I can start 2017 feeling pretty good - a couple of pounds heavier perhaps (damn you Malteser Reindeers), but optimistic and joyful nonetheless! So why not all toast your own successes this year – however big or small. I think we could all do with a little boost to push us in to 2017.
In the meantime, enjoy all the festive frolicks that this time of year has to offer. I hope you all have a wonderful time whatever you have planned this Christmas.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
See you in 2017!
