December already and I’ve only just started my Christmas shopping.
I don’t like to make a big thing of it. I don’t do present overload. I prefer to give less stuff, but more love.
Love is more important than shopping – more important than stuff. The best present you can give is your time and attention. Time to be engaged.
Nothing worse than being with someone who is only engaged with their gadget. Hope you’ll remember that this Christmas! As parents; remember it for all the times you’re with the kids. There’s times for gadgets and times for kids; exclusively.
Talking of love, if you’re short of a pressie for a Home Ed friend this Christmas you might like to give them my newest book A Home Education Notebook. Because I wrote it as an offer of love and support for all those home schooling families since I can’t be in the room giving them a hand. This is my hand of help. Reviewers tell me it really does the job when they’re feeling wobbly! (Read some reviews here)
And if you are looking for a loving family read for a mum you know, you might like to offer them my story; ‘A Funny Kind of Education’ guaranteed to bring tears and laughter, folks say! (Lots of lovely reviews on Amazon)
Meanwhile, I’ll get back to my own small Christmas list. Always hoping I’ll get a book for Christmas!
