How do you celebrate Christmas in your family? When you become parents, you get an opportunity to think about this in a different way. What traditions from your own childhood do you carry forward? Are there things you want to do differently? It dawns on you that you are creating your children’s memories – and the urge to make Christmas special and meaningful burns brightly.
Getting together with family – sharing food and gifts and time together – feature in most people’s picture. Can we call this ‘honey time’? Time that is sweet and fluid and oh so nourishing.
But it’s not all sweetness and light, is it? It can turn out to be a very stressful time of the year. Getting together with family often opens old wounds and there are so many things happening at this time of year that it can get a bit much: the school year finishes, summer holidays need to be prepared for, office parties, neighbourhood gatherings, Christmas cards to send, baking and gift buying… It can be a time of contradictions.
Here at The Honeyclock, we wish for you some sweet honey time. Relaxed, stress-free, uncomplicated. Some time to connect with your dear ones and nourish yourself. We wish for you a lovely break!
And, if you’re still not quite ready for Christmas or stocked up on your Dr Hauschka or cleaning needs for the three weeks we will be closed, pop in to The Honeyclock this week and see us! Our latest newsletter gives you a brief overview of our shop and some of what we have to offer you this Christmas…
This month we are experiencing the birth of many bundles of newly born beauty as mothers who have recently given birth bring their lovely new children into our shop. Lying, sleeping, nestled in their mothers arms, these children evoke a different pace in us as we stop in our tasks to watch them. Serenely they lie, delicately they radiate an energy we have not felt for a long time that makes our hearts swell. We see their long fingers and tiny finger nails, their red feet with toes pointing in all directions, their peacefully closed eyes with long lashes or their red faces as they slowly screw them up ready to share with us their voices. We talk gently and quietly and we share experiences of birthing, siblings, mothering and the differences that come with each individual person into this world.
We’re reduced the last of our knitted baby stock – beanies & socks, as well as our Art Viva knitting kits by 30%, come in a grab a bargin!
