It’s Trish! Long time, no write! Sorry about that. I thought I’d put fingers to touchscreen, and touch base to clue you in on some things I’d love from you this year. When I last wrote to you, my letters were full of wanting books, and toys, and a surprise. Now that I’m older, I’m less about the materialistic things. And I’m totally over surprises, as adult surprises are rarely good news. But don’t worry, I haven’t totally changed. Because, I still want the ALL books.
All I want for Christmas is
So I can fill my kindle with lots of 2018 new releases (we won’t talk about the ones I bought with last years vouchers, but haven’t yet read!). I love knowing that I have an eclectic range of books to droll over, and spare for just the right moment to read.
Surprisingly, I’ve never yet had one, but I see them all the time on Instagram. They look so literary,just perfect for my bookshelves, and I’m curious to see what they smell like.
Motivation to stay running over the holidays
OK, I know this is hard one to fit in your sack, but you are magic, I believe in you to deliver. A little time out every other day to clear my head, and burn off some calories will probably be the last thing I want to do. But I know it will make me feel so good.
You know this is a hard time of year for me. My Christmases are not the way I dreamed they would be. Especially this year, when it looked like our dearest wish was coming through. Sadly it wasn’t to be. So this year I want you to send me all the strength. And blow the gentlest of kisses all the way to our little angel in heaven.
I appreciate this is sounding like something that 10 year-old Trish would have had on her letter. Nevertheless, I still love board games. They are social, they are fun, and I get to indulge my competitive spirit. Can we agree that cheating isn’t naughty when it comes to board games, it’s just strategic.
Most of all I want time to read, time to spend with family, time to do nothing. Come Christmas Eve, I want to rip off my watch, and forget about needing to clock watch. Instead I want to live in the moment, and do all the little things I love. And appreciate the many blessings, and comforts that I do have in my life.
Thanks Santa! Your milk and cookies will be waiting for you, and I’ve gone all fancy this year with carrot batons for Rudolph.
Lots of love,

PPS – It’s been good to talk, it reminds me of the magic of Christmas and the simple pleasure of laying my heart on the line and speaking my truth.
