    I came home tonight, all the lights were off, and I thought "oh oh" hubby has slept through his alarm - for night shift.

    I came in and made my way to the lounge and walked in and it looked like a Christmas wonderland.

    While I was at work, he put up a tree, wrapped a load of pressies and spread them around and draped blue fairly lights all over!!!

    I was like a little kid, I just started squealing I was so excited!!!!!!!!!!! THen I cried, I was so happy!!

    This is the first time in 8 years we have had a tree, or lights....or anything that was Christmassy in our house.

    With his work and crazy schedules, and muy always feeling a bit blue missing my family, Christmas sort of comes and goes for us without much notice here.

    So, to cheer me up, he has been going out after work every night for the past week looking for bits and peices, and set it up to surprise me.

    I am overwhelmed. I have all the lights off, christmas music playing, me and the kittys tucked up on the sofa, and I am just soaking it all up.

    It feels so nice to have these things. I can't express why or how much it means to me what he has done. It;s just been such a long time. I have forgotten the comfort that comes with a darkened room, lit by a tree, with music and scents - its just, well, it feels like home.

    Nothing has felt like home for such a long time.

    I'm so lucky. ANd I just wanted to share my happiness. What a great guy. Love him to bits.

    Here's to a Merry CHristmas to all of you, and a very Happy New Year.

    Me, signing off, in the glow of Christmas.
