How exciting!  Son was due on 8 December and arrived on the 22nd.  


I've always thought that if they hadn't chivvied him along he'd have arrived on the 25th 


Keep us informed as to developments Paula

Did he have a wish?  Do you have that tradition that you have a wish with the first mince pie of the season?

Cards have been posted including the one to Tas 


Supper will be panfried lamb's liver with smoked streaky bacon and onion marmalade with baby potatoes and green beans.  All is prepped and ready to go.


The kitchen smells amazing 'cos not only is the onion marmalade made but there's a big pot of pickling onions in salt ready to pickle tomorrow.  Think when the washing machine delivery men turn up tomorrow they may find their eyes watering   

Putting up Christmas Decorations and Tree

Posted: 08/12/2016 at 15:14

Ours are going up this coming weekend Clarice  we're thinking about not putting our big tree up as it takes up a lot of room and we will have guests staying for some of the time and there won't be a lot of space to stretch out in armchairs etc, even in this biggish room.  


I think we'll go for lots of greenery, lights and berries and a smaller tree.  We've also got some 'candlelit tableaux' - one of a little nativity and another is a woodland scene and they're very pretty, and of course my favourite musical box snowglobe which plays the Twelve Days of Christmas as the snow falls.  It was a lovely pressie from OH quite a while ago now 


Oh, and of course I'll be making a wreath for the front porch and a  centre piece for the table, with greenery and a candle.

Best to look forward I think Obelixx, and as Ma used to say, "prepare for the worst and hope for the best".
