Imagined conversation 79: Christmas eve 2018

on December 24, 2018

Me: If you were here at home, back in time, Ants, we would have been sneaking bits of the Christmas ham and drinking champagne, then you would have eventually gone to bed and I would stay up for hours, wrapping presents to put into his pillow-case, leaving the empty pillowcase on the end of his bed and secretly filling the identical pillow-case (blue) with as many presents as I could fit into it! You thought I was extravagant but I was just doing what my parents did and, anyway, it was Ming, our only child; I wanted to give him the world + lego.

Anthony: It is quite common for middle-aged women to feel a bit lost when their children grow up.

Me: Straight to the point as usual, Ants – I miss you.

Anthony: I miss you too, Jules, but I mostly miss seeing Ming growing into a man of my calibre.

Me: Your arrogance is breathtaking, Ants!

Anthony: Jules?

Me: Ants?

Anthony: I am with you.

Me: Okay.

    It is not quite right to say have a happy Christmas Julie but you know what I mean.

  4. When I was a child we would leave our empty Christmas pillowcase on the lounge before going to bed along with a stubby and some Christmas cake for Santa and I carried on that tradition with my girls.

    Hi Julie, I don’t know why but for a while I didn’t see your posts.I may have inadvertently unfollowed you, so sorry for that but I am following you back. I hope everything is okay with you. Happy 2019.

  7. Happy New Year to you Jim (Jules)!
    And Happy New Year to Anthony also–he is ever and always with you.
    Time, space, and distance are just illusions.
    Love lives on forever.
