So I sit here typing on Boxing Day feeling quite content. Boxing Day is usually a good day for me as the stress of Christmas Day has passed and it’s a long time to the next Christmas Day. But this Christmas Day has been a little different. Though far from perfect, it felt right in many ways. I felt part of the ‘family’ my partner and I have created with his three children in this house. I felt loved. I felt wanted. I felt needed. These feelings are better than anything that could have been bought for me.
