So, because this is the first Christmas without Mum, we're all doing things a bit differently this year.
Dad and I talked about it, and after discovering Don and Michelle were planning a trip, we decided maybe we should get away as well, spend Christmas somewhere completely distracting.
We made reservations, we found the perfect hotel, and we're jetting out on Christmas Eve, heading home on December 28.
Where else can you forget your sorrows of the season?
A room at the Bellagio, some gambling, some food, some sightseeing, and I think we'll get through the holiday after all. Expect lots of pictures and touristy gushing when I return!
But until then, I want to wish each and every one of you a happy, precious, fun-filled, safe, lovely and warm Christmas. You have all certainly made this holiday brighter for me with your comments, emails and warm wishes.
