It’s exciting having a baby in the family at this time of the year. It’s my nephew’s first Christmas, and it just so happens I’m hosting the celebrations at my house this year.
We’re waving good bye to our tradition of spending Christmas at my mother’s house in Inverkip. It works better for everyone being at mine in Glasgow. My Gran is ill and can no longer get up and down stairs (my building has an elevator) and Carolyn is splitting time between her fiance’s family in Edinburgh and our family in Glasgow.
At first I was feeling daunted, but now I’m looking forward to welcoming everyone with a mulled wine.
