Our Christmas newsletter – 2014 in rhyme

Dear family and friends, it’s Christmas time
So here is the latest edition
Of the last year’s news, set out in rhyme
As now has become our tradition

January: a cardiac catheter op
Jessica’s arteries need to grow more
Before her next big op takes place
Hopefully some time after she’s four

Christmas newsletter 2014 - Little Hearts, Big Love

February: Sophie’s christening day took place
Celebrating with friends and relations
A party in March with Friends of PICU
as they marked a million pounds of donations

April: Michael had an event in Berlin
And we rehearsed for a concert in May
Fundraising for PICU and Christian Aid
Plus we enjoyed a church weekend away

June: ticking off a gold postbox when we visited Sark
Driving from Normandy to the Côte d’Azur
Through Monaco, into Italy; we drove all about
Our first trip abroad as a family of four

Christmas newsletter 2014 - Little Hearts, Big Love
Summertime: days out to Legoland,
Alton Towers, seeing In the Night Garden show
Treasure trails, book bench hunts, painting outside
Time with cousins hunting for the Gruffalo

September: Jessica’s birthday – our miracle turned three
How grown up she suddenly appears
Loving puzzles and jigsaws, drawing and crafts
And off to preschool at the start of next year

October: how can it be that Sophie is one
And suddenly a baby no more?
We now have a toddler who’s walking about
And so eager to play and explore

Friday Focus 31-10-14 (05)
November: a spa day, just time for us
To be a couple – relaxation, sublime!
A Christmas party for families of Ocean Ward
Where we all had a wonderful time

Me and Mine (November) 02

December: another concert for charity
Getting ready as Christmas draws near
Wishing you all Merry Christmas, hope you have fun
And best wishes for the coming year

    1. Thank you Reneé, I started a rhyming letter a few years ago and now it’s become a firm tradition. It has been quite a busy year and so lovely to look back on it all. Hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas too and look forward to reading more from your blog too in the New Year x
