Lovely photos, Berghill, just the thing to brighten up a December day.

Dining room table is set for tomorrow, house is de-cobwebbed (wonder how long that will last?), glass paned doors cleaned. Now to make stuffing and prepare veg.

What rotten luck about your back DD, hope it feels better tomorrow. I hope you are having a break from the B&B.

'Twas the night before Christmas...a little homage

I can just repeat what everyone has said - that is brilliant, Fairy. I've read it out loud to OH, copied it onto Word and filed it and printed it out.

I got a recipe from Google, Jo, but they are all similar, cook for about 3 1/2 hours, just the seasonings are different.

Don't know what in order the pics and writing will appear, never the same as I posted!

 And the crib as well. My brother brought back the figures from Bethlehem, carved in olive wood.




Here is the tree with the lights on, though I prefer the photo I sent before with lights off. Much better in real life than photo with lights. A bit of bling on the dining room ceiling and a bit of greenery on the stairs to the study.

Morning all. No wind here. Good luck Hosta and hubby.

Shall make chestnut stuffing for the goose and prepare veggies today and do some housework. Looks like a lovely gardening day though. I'll do the guinea fowl stuffing, which has some sausage meat, tomorrow.

Found it, used the Wintersong method.

Enjoyed the pizza, but had to reheat it. Pizza man left his employee in charge for 30 mins and he got in a muddle and had given our pizzas to someone else. Luckily the someone else came back with ours, while the chap was having a mild panic attack and rang the boss to come to tell him what to do!

Just had mulled wine, but we are an hour ahead of you. Going to get pizzas from man in the village, so don't have to cook tonight. Lost a pound on diet day yesterday, about to put it on again

That will keep you busy for a bit, but it should be fun. Glad you are having a lawn, sets off the beds and plants.

Dove, have you looked in the shed or wherever your OH keeps things? He may have put his nails in them. That's the sort of thing that happens in this household.

Cleaned dining room, it was cold in there, rads were off. Turned them on and will put up decorations later. Now de-frosting the small freezer in the larder. Haven't ironed yet as OH said he would light the woodburner in the sitting room, but he forgot, cold there too. Kitchen is now too hot, from boiling water in pans to put in the de-frosting freezer!
