Yours are lovely Panda. Cheeky reindeer are hard to beat! 

Would be nice to see some Christmas tree pics too if anyone wants to display them.

Maybe on David's camera thread, or a dedicated one?

Off to 'do' daughter's hair now and put up some more lights in back window if I can wade through all the decorated biscuits covering every surface....

Will they make it as far as the nieces Panda? 

Youngest made some of those the other day at school - she saved me one and very nice it was too!

Here's her 'alternative' Rudolph - he's more 'Zorrudolph'...


Merry Christmas

It actually looks a bit like my daughter when she was dressed up at Hallowe'en!

I really look like this:

Happy Anniversary to you and Mr G. Have a lovely lunch   My grandparents were married on Christmas Day in the early 20th century. Up here it wasn't a holiday back then - even when Mum was a young girl - it was just another working day!

Can I borrow someone to clean the bathroom too...

Been wild and windy and sleety here but the sun's made a brief appearance. Cold though. Going out for tea with a friend later. Not much shopping still to do - only buy for the girls. Like to do a nice stocking for them even though it's the fat man in the red suit's job really...he's a bit busy though 

Lazing's good pd...I'll save you a gingerbread 'person' for later!

I love swans too. They say they mate for life...

 These are at Loch Melfort, just south of Oban on the west coast of Scotland. First time I was there it was just the swans - there are quite a few of them - and next time  they brought 'baby' to show us.

Morning everyone.

Have you 'made a list and checked it twice' chick?   I buy things and hide them then forget where I put them. I'm only 27 ..ooops 28 now... too, so I can't understand it....

More icing of gingerbread house to do- think daughter will be doing most of that but I may be on 'roof painting' duty! Have to wait for batteries to charge to take photos of all her biccies - there's a lot of them!

Dove and fidget - those pesky elves always need keeping in line. There's a Cornish one in particular who refuses to behave. Always eating the buns that are for Santa and he's been at the gingerbread men too....


Merry Christmas

Lily - there maybe a few little men left - I'll put some pix on tomorrow. The 'special' one is drying - ready for going on the tree. 

Some whips still to do. Weather not been great here for planting, but they're heeled in round at the back so they can be planted when it's better. The ones that are in withstood the wild winds thankfully.

Off to bed soon. See you all tomorrow

Hello everyone - I'm back!

Been busy decorating the tree with the girls, and daughter no 1 has made loads of biscuits for her Dad's party, and gingerbread men/women for us which we've been decorating in an 'alternative' fashion... Good fun. 

About to decorate the 'special' last one - will post photos soon - while she puts her Gingerbread House together.

Not much done outside as the weather has been mostly unsuitable, except for repairs after all the wind and rain. Old fence all came down,  but the new one looks like it will withstand nuclear war - the weakest point was the galvanised gate latch on my new side gate as it snapped in two! Most of whips in, the rest are bedded in and will get planted when the weather improves.

Have not read all the posts - too many - so I hope everyone is well and looking forward to Christmas. 

Here's a seasonal joke for Verd :

How many reindeer does Santa have?

The answer's 10.  Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, Rudolph....and  Olive :

" Rudolph  the red nosed reindeer had a very shiny nose

And if you ever saw it, you would even say it glows.

Olive, the other reindeer, used to laugh and call him names.....


So it's goodnight from me...and goodnight from them...

I'll get my coat....

Merry Christmas
