It’s that time of year when some of us race around, buying gifts for others (and sometimes for ourselves. ahem.) and cooking mountains of food and draping our homes in glittery tinsel and prickly holly swags.
Of course, those of us anywhere south of Cancer must factor in the likelihood of storms…so we tend toward the more practical.
With fans whirring and all windows open most dangling things very quickly land on the floor. So the token “Christmassy decor” is what you see on the header. There are some strings of small gold (yes, of course 24k!) bells wound around curtain poles and some more swinging from the pole finials.
And there will not be mountains of food or we’d end up with a mountain of moi.And moi is struggling already with her mountain. But there will be a prawn supper for 2 members of the menage. One of us is allergic and one of us thinks prawns are “kaka.”
Very low-key. But we have some flowers!
Top l to r.Frangipani, Hibiscus, Cassia
Right.Tree,Picea glauca; Rose, “Abraham Darby” and daft bit of whimsy because Sporran likes fevvers.
I wish all of you happiness and love and the courage to meet challenges.And perhaps, even if you’ve been a wee bit naughty, a little something extra in your stocking.
Merry Christmas to all!
