Christmas Greetings

 Still in jim-jams at 12.30 - one of the joys of the Christmas. Ian and I did stockings for each other this year: mine contained books, choccies, a couple of Bailey's miniatures and numerous art and sewing supplies. Ian's contained books, left-handed scissors, seeds, choccies, wind-up caterpillar and a Wallace and Gromit Wensleydale.  Kept it in work fridge until yesterday to keep secret, I thought it might be kidnapped. I also made him printed bunting for his bookshelves -more photos when it's in place
We had the first of our seasonal bizarre breakfasts: bucks fizz and coffee (love the combine effect!), crumpets with brandy bitter and 'devils on horseback' (dates wrapped in bacon). Tomorrow it will be leftovers from todays lunch - glazed ham and tiramisu!! What odd traditions do you have?
Whatever you're doing, hope you're having  a wonderful time.

Merry Christmas to you both!

Plenty of odd traditions here. The main oddity is Christmas dinner (evening) which for several years has been an assortment of dim sum, courtesy of the Chinese supermarket in Birmingham.

As half the presents are either in Stockton or still to be delivered here, the pressies are going to continue for a while!

Thanks for the card & newsletter. One of these days, I'll find your address...

Good Morning and Merry Christmas.
Today I shall have a Bloody Mary and mince tarts for breakfast! (the only other day I have a Bloody Mary is Mothers day)
Later this afternoon our family meal will be goose (we have turkey at Thanksgiving) and Christmas pud...if I am not too merry I intend to take a piccie of the flaming pud for the blog. Hope you are having a super day
