Unspoken Conversations are the topics that are often swept under the carpet, whispered amongst the closest of friends and bitched about by many. I want to create awareness about difficult things that people face in life; grief, mental health, money, illnesses, family troubles, relationship difficulties and putting yourself first. I want to tell the truth about things that really matter.

Merry Christmas Everyone

It's that time of the year that almost pee myself with  excitement in the lead up to Christmas Day.

Yes I'm the kid who has the Christmas carols cranked, makes my husband have a family photo with Christmas hats on heads, is the first to wake the house the morning of the big day and hands out the presents one by one to everyone making sure that we take the time to ohhh and arrr over them!!!

Man I love this time of the year!

It's so exciting as friends and family start arriving and your schedule fills up with parties and dinner dates spent giggling over the years antics and creating new, often very merry memories.

It's fun putting up the Christmas tree and having your house sparkle from the lights dangling from every place you could hammer a nail.

There's so serious retail therapy involved to find the perfect gifts and to sneak in a couple for yourself.

The weather is genuinely warm and you know you get a few days off to kick back and do nothing but eat, drink, sit around and entertain.

There's recipes that are whipped out annually not to mention nannas chocolate balls and slices and most people are in a fairly festive spirit except the old Grinch .

It's also a time to be thankful and grateful and to give generously to those less fortunate.

So a huge big Merry Christmas to my readers. I'll be spending Christmas eve the  traditional way at a church service followed by the pub and Christmas Day with my top button undone from the overindulgence of delicious treats!!!

Love the Traegers xxx
