In Florida we are so fortunate to be able to get out and about.

As I have often mentioned, I keep abreast of what is going on in the U.K., and feel so bad that the kids can’t go to the mall, to see the Christmas decorations that have been put up. They can’t go to shops to physically look at the items that they are hoping for this year. Even if the government lift it over Christmas, a lot of the excitement leading up to it will have gone.

Being a senior, Christmas to me is the birth of baby Jesus, and as we have no family close by it doesn’t make a big difference to me.

I know that next year will be different, maybe not back to normal, but with vaccines close to it. Children with disabilities are probably the worst hit, because they want everything as it always has been. I know parents will do the best they can, but my granddaughter with severe learning disabilities, and on the high end of the Autism Spectrum will miss out. She loves Christmas, and everything that goes with it.

It will be Amazon packages, and not Father Christmas/Santa Claus that will be doing the delivering.

  1. I am hoping they will not close the schools here. My Grandson loves school and seeing all his friends. He is in Grade 1 and I think it is an important year. He has a wonderful teacher who really works so well with all the little ones. And Christmas is a tough one. I don’t think we will see them over Christmas. The numbers in Canada have been going up and that is a concern.

  2. Our out and about is spreading Covid like wildfire in Florida and other GOP lead states. Our medical personnel is exhausted physically and emotionally, stay home if you can, don’t gather in large groups , wear masks in public. Stay alive a vaccine is near.

  3. Thank you for sharing!!… life sometimes puts challenges in our path but as the saying goes “where there is a will, there is a way”… and who know, maybe Santa will be helping Amazon this year.. cannot put anything past the jolly ole elf… 🙂

    Until we meet again..
    May the dreams you hold dearest
    Be those which come true
    May the kindness you spread
    Keep returning to you

  4. You have a great governor in Florida. There are some people with so much partisan rage in their blood, that they can’t see what Florida is like compared to most states. I live in Massachusetts and the measures up here are so restrictive that regular people have taken to filing lawsuits for the overreach of government. My governor is republican as well, but a complete jackass. I hope that the vaccine is delivered to your granddaughter quickly and that she can enjoy all of the beauty and love associated with Christmas.
