There are a million things I want for christmas but generally they’re small things I’d like to pick out myself or they’re too expensive to expect others to pay for… as you can tell I’m a dream to buy gifts for. Over the years I’ve learnt to keep it simple after frustrating Steve time and time again and last year I decided spare my son the anguish in the future and start a tradition now.
Every Christmas I renew my subscription to Real Living Magazine as a gift from Aidan and in addition he gives me a handmade gift which he makes with Steve. I love that it’s cheaper to subscribe, it always inspires me and a little happiness arrives in my PO Box each month. Magazine subscriptions just work for me. When the boys see the freshly plastic-wrapped issue on the dining table they know that night I’ll be wallowing in a hot bath with a glass of Rikorderlig, flicking through the pages in candle light. It’s not just pages of a magazine that arrive, it’s my monthly “take time out” reminder and it’s worth far more than the subscription alone.
