Christmas time suits me very well. Its the busiest time of year for most people, and I have found that since Lola died I have to constantly keep busy. At first I didn't notice it, but I was always planning the next thing, and if there didn't happen to be a Birthday or main event happening in the very near future I would immediately plan something like a dinner party or a big Sunday Lunch for the family. I guess I did it subconsciously at first and I did use to feel guilt as it seemed I was always rushing onto the next thing and not stopping for a moment to appreciate every day.... which of course is also important and probably the angle My Husband John takes from his grief. He is very much make every day count because you never know what the future will hold. He is right of course, but too much time gives my mind far too much free range. I think I will always be this way, organising the next new thing, which brings me on to my new job as Deputy Editor of Village Living Magazine. This is a local magazine run by my lovely friend Katie also a Mum at my Children's school. She has asked me to come on board because of my fashion and sales background and I am thoroughly enjoying every minute of it. So between Gifts for Angels, Village Living Magazine and the School Christmas Fayre, not to mention my own family Christmas I am happily tied up for the next month!
Does keeping busy help with your grief ? I would love to hear your thoughts.

This Christmas I am so pleased to offer some lovely pieces to keep all our loved ones close in our hearts.
The personalised Christmas Baubles are back, which were so popular last year. I have my beautiful Glass bauble which sits pride of place on my christmas tree every year. In addition to these I now have a Sliver finished 'Tree Angel' and a real 'Slate Heart tree decoration' both of which can be personalised. The beautiful Stained glass Gifts, are perfect for any tree and can be made in any colour of your choice.
The Gold and Silver Grave Side Vases are back too.
I understand how hard Christmas time can be and I'm sure that will be the title of my next blog......http://www.giftsforangels.co.uk
