Dad always used to take us to see the 'lights' in Sheffield ( for ' locals) particularly enjoyed The Moor before it was pedestrianised.
All presents ripped open at first opportunity - none of this waiting until after dinner - OH and his family struggle with this as they were always made to wait for most of theirs.
I remember carol singing at peoples doors, and a young mother giving us a load of 'seasonal' abuse ( obviously being disturbed trying to get baby to sleep!).
love the idea of making the wallpaper paste and decorations! We weren't 'allowed' to use drawing pins - but we did- for the decorations.
Happy memories.

Sorry that was just cheating! I'll try again...
Good morning, hope all are well, haven't looked back yet.
Looking forward to weekend as it may be the first time I have any hope of getting into the garden in a long must posts may be fast and furious once I get out there!
Have a good day all.
(wonder if im still first?)

Missed what Lil fairy has been up to but I'll. Join the chorus of well comes anyway
Chicky, we did a lot in Berlin over a weekend but perhaps better to stick to a few places you choose before hand, then you can appreciate more unlike us being completely ######## ered !
son at swim lesson so a bit of hill time for me. And him...instead of doing his practice he's literally floating off in a world of his own!

Chicky - get confident on the transport network! Holocaust memorial was very moving and art on so many wierd levels, strange emotions, get 'amongst' it!
We never found any quaint areas. Botanical gardens worth a visit. The bike (cycle) tour was really well worth it, with a great guide and information. Tegal park was good too ( might have got the name wrong!) and that surrounding area, nice informal pub overlooking river ( again wish I remembered the name but bike tour stops there).
Hope you enjoy it. X

Evening all.
Garden is still just taking its chances and being neglected.
Busy few days, weeks, whatever, again - just looking outside wishing I could get out there!
Decorating about done, just gotta decide tie backs, hold backs or curtains fall freely.
meeting at school this morning - went well, son did his own PowerPoint presentation too just wait for the paperwork now.
afternoon - finally got started on tax returns and made good headway. Such a bore!
Fingers crossed (PS nail not come off as yet), for a good garden day at the weekend - and time to get in it. Failing that, must go o line and get some blinkin pink daffodils that wormed their way into my head last year! :/
take care all of you.x

Morning all, if I pull my finger out I just might get 5mins in the garden today! First, being very strict with myself, I must make some effort towards tax returns , I'm finally happy with progress on my report for son's schooling, got HW & I***ing to do, charity bags to take to shop, fish to clean out, noodling to do on here, and a whole list of 'bit jobs' and 'office work' to get through.
