This is a short post as I expect you’re still busy!!! I know I am! I’ve got to collect the turkey and get some last minute bits and bobs from the supermarket, which will be crowded. Not to worry, there’s so much to look forward to with family around the table on the day. Actually, as well as the pleasure of this, there’s always that slight heartache at absent parents and I shall raise a glass to them and think of all the Christmases we had in the past – my mother always did a good Christmas!
Here’s our small Christmas tree that fits nicely into a corner of our flat
The pink bell on the right at the bottom was made by my 40-year-old son when he was in primary school. I’ll point it out to him and tell him how much I treasure it. I have a habit of keeping old baubles for the tree and, I might have shown you this before, but look at that golden bauble.
It was bought for my parent’s first Christmas in England after their return from India. I would have been 18 months, so that makes this Christmas decoration over 70 years old!
So here’s wishing you a very merry Christmas and a happy and interesting (!) 2019. I shall see you in a week’s time and in the meantime I shall go for a long walk on Boxing Day wearing a hat bought last year that needs its first outing.
And also a very big thank you for all your support through this year – I appreciate every one of you, so much!
That’s all for now – take it easy over the next few days!
