I’m talking about those precious days – the days that start with the most precious of all, Christmas Day and end on New Years Day. To me they are inbetween – between an ending and a beginning.
The days when the house has been cleared of all the holiday excess – the visitors have been and gone – some reminders are still there – but generally life has slowed down to almost a crawl.
So far this year there are memories of a quiet Christmas Day picnic by the river at Buxton. On one side the Little Steavenson River, behind us the mountains, families playing and having fun at their gatherings in the park along side.

There has been the feel of really hot days when I thought the little snowmen as well as the kitchen window sill flowers would melt
Those have been the days of us just being lazy, listening to the Boxing Day cricket test on the radio, books and drinks at hand. Marvelling at how quiet the neighbourhood is and of course having Kiera close at hand.
Of course we haven’t lounged around all the time – there have been slightly cooler days
some things must be done 😦
This is what I class as healing time so
Food has been simple leftovers – housework basic.
If it’s not necessary it doesn’t get done lol
And so it goes.
The New Year will be here soon and it will be back to reality.
How do you spend those ‘in between days’
