I have succumbed! The nativity scent is out of the loft and I’m tempted๐Ÿ˜€

our midnight mass is at 7.30pm this year, not quite the same but don’t want to be following a star and journeying afar for a later one. ๐Ÿ˜€

Wonky,  of course you can keep your tree until Easter and put eggs on it, I work in plenty of churchyards where people can’t be bothered to put the Christmas wreaths in the bin after.

I spend a lot of time gathering them up around Easter time when people can’t be bothered.

When I was little my mum would leave them up until my birthday, Jan 12th, then she would light the candle on it, real ones, and turn the light out. I can see it now. ๐Ÿค—

When my dad was young, there were 13 children, although the older ones were married and had kids of their own but they all came for  Sunday dinner.  His mum would make a huge suet pudding rolled in a cloth like a sausage shaped ring and boil it in a huge saucepan,  that was served with the gravy first, then they didn’t want so much dinner.

other than that, it was a case of .. if you want food, go out and get it it, so rabbits were caught, pheasants, chicken whatever they could find, living in a kent there was always plenty of fruit and veg to be pulled.  I don’t think there would have been any sauce available to them at that time.

Thanks Obe, you know that feeling when you open your eyes and wonder what the day will bring๐Ÿ˜€

got to stay postitive though. Just heard of a neighbouring farmer, had a bad leg doctor palming him off with all sorts as they do, it was a clot, hit his lung, he’s very ill, lucky it missed  his heart, or his brain. 

I do love the petunia Christmas tree, never thought about trialing them upwards, what a good idea, 

terrible news Dove, I expect they will get a tap on the wrist and have their better nature appealed too.

Love the children’s take on modern art, out of the mouths of babes......

was it a pile of bean cans, someone put a canvas on the floor and walked over with different coloured paints or a rock with a hole in the middle. I never understand it either. But then I can be a miserable old bat sometimes ๐Ÿ˜€

I know it’s hard Punkdoc and it’s no consolation, but I lost so many people in the space of that two years I was nursing my parents in their last days, my daughter has lost four friends recently, all leaving young children and my step daughter has lost three. All only 30 /40 ish, and there’s not much hope for my son either. Thanks to NHS. 

Make the most of your days, you never know when you won’t have them.
