Think I must be ill. Went to GC, didn't buy any plants  Nearly bought a dark red dogwood but changed my mind at the last minute

I'll see you there Chicky  Just waiting for Ma and Pa to arrive for our trip to the GC

Still in bed   Have some time before I have to get up, and I'll be honest, it looks vile out there. Hope Chicky gets the weather she wants, although I doubt she will

Glad you had a lovely time BL

Off for a virtual wander round the forum  

It's the weekend people lighten up!!!!

Evening all  OH is sorting out tea  so we can eat while watching the dancing 

Fidget, those were some amazing pics. Didn't know anyone had spotted me cooking 

Am envious of those that made it outside - has rained pretty much all day  Did go and sort out some Guide camping equipment and then met my mother in town for a touch of shopping. 

Tomorrow features a trip to a GC as have some vouchers to spend. . . will be looking for some presents and will do my very best to not let any plants jump into my trolly   Mission impossible some might think 

Enjoy your evenings all

I am very jealous of your poppy Fairy. I wanted one for Christmas, and told OH, and mentioned that they would sell out fast. When I went to buy some for my family they had all sold out, and OH hadn't got around to it 

What an evening I've had  The whole of town was in gridlock and I only just made it home to get a little bit of food inside me before off out again to get stuck in it on my way to Guides  Got there a wee bit late. But then had a lovely surprise, one of the parents brought us some flowers as a thank you for what we do What a lovely end to a challenging day

We have a few traditions that we keep at Christmas . . . . 

As a child we all had one of my mums hockey socks at the end of our bed and when we woke on Christmas Day we would all get together in mum and day's room, on or in their bed and all open our stockings together, one present at a time, taking it in turns. Then we'd get up and, while mum prepared dinner we got dressed. We all then went to the family service at the Cathedral - dad and younger brother sang in the choir - and then we would come back to a lovely turkey dinner. We all then had to do the rhyme " salama gurkey, once ate a turkey, salama gurkey when he was small. Salama gurkey ate up that turkey, bones, feathers and all" (a tradition from when my dad was a boy). We opened our presents after lunch, once the tidying up had been done, one at a time, taking it in turns. We never watched TV on Christmas Day. 

These traditions (apart from the bed bit) are still going strong today  My younger brother does them with his family and am have introduced them to OH, who is struggling to get used them
