12 Days of Christmas

So it’s been a while since I last blogged, and so much has happened that there is too much to comment on so I’m going to give you a brief overview… I spent a week working at BBC Radio Wales, and it was ah-maz-ing, watched on in dismay as Wales lost every Autumn International Rugby game they played, experienced the stress of life as a final year student at university, and got to grips with the fact that in roughly 6 months I’ll be facing the real world.  Scary stuff!!! Anyway after my halfhearted attempt at an explanation for my absence from the blogosphere, there are more pressing issues to deal with, being that…

IT’S CHRISTMAS! 🙂

The best time of the year as far as I’m concerned! I eagerly awoke on Christmas morning to be greeted by my impatient little sister hurrying me out of bed to open presents, presents and yet more presents.  Spoiled doesn’t begin to cover how lucky I was with my gifts this Christmas and I’d like to thank everyone who gave me a gift for their thoughtfulness.  Whilst dinner was being prepared, I took the opportunity to catch up with the days news and I was disheartened by the fact that several of the BBC’s top stories were about the loss of life, the tragic M6 Crash that resulted in the untimely death of two children, and the brutal murder of a woman in Carmarthen.  The disturbing news made me think about all those people for whom Christmas is a time of grieving and distress, and my heart went out to every person who had the ill fortune of spending this joyful time of year in despair and suffering.  Christmas is a time of giving, not just presents, but giving something to help ease the hardship of others, whether it be a contribution to charity or volunteering at a local homeless shelter to serve food to the homeless.  Christmas isn’t over yet, and there is still a chance to help those who are in desperate need of relief.  This is a plea to the good nature and generosity of everyone who reads this post; if you haven’t yet done your part to help someone less fortunate than yourself this Christmas, there is still time!  After all, there are 12 days of Christmas!
