FRANK. I maybe wrong (again) but I think he may be referring to the author Laurie Lee who wrote the famous book 'Cider with Rosie'.  In it he is brought up by a gaggle of sisters in the countryside and lives a real country life. Own animals and growing veg out of nessecity, eventually he grows up and leaves to go Spain to fight in the war ? ......please read it, it's a wonderful story. Apologies if I have it cockeyed

All these posts of Christmas's past are bringing back lovely memories of bygone days.........the paper chains, the bells and balls in primary colours that magically unfolded into shapes, (pink) blancmange,  SGL's concertina ceiling decorations etc etc.  Lovely. 

Iv been to the Market this afternoon and although it's only small, it definitely felt Christmasy. It was very cold and crisp. The fruit and veg stall full to bursting. The smell of the stall was gorgeous.  Treated myself to a liqueur' from M & S called 'Christmas Cake Liqueur'.  It's so Christmasy and yummy.  Yes of course Iv opened it  and had a little libation to warm my old bones. Well that's my excuse

SGL.  Re the piece of coal .......I think its called '1st footing', you take. Peice of coal, go outside and come back in again. Supposed to letting in good luck.  It's done on New Years Eve I beleve.  The person should also have dark hair. Uhhh!!!

SGL.  Remember well the milk and carrot or mince pie for Santa.  My children still want an Advent calendar.  I did say, like you with the stockings, I wouldn't do it any more, but no, they still want one for themselves.
