Some of us, well, maybe most of us, are feeling a little glum, what with miserable weather and lock-downs in Northern parts and scary fires and floods on my side of the world. And that’s without even mentioning the bloody plague!
But I suggested to our friend in Merkle-land that what’s needed to cheer us all is a Blog Party! Like in the old days, before people became welded to their phones or wandered off to play on Farcebook and Instaglam.
So, I’m kicking off the 2020 Blog Party. Just think of some gifts your blog friends might be happy to receive, have a wander ’round the interweb for images and post said images on your own blogs, with a link in comments here so we can all have a giggle. Or whatever.No expenditure of the Queens coin. Just fun.
Oh! And, should the Ghost of Christmasses Past pop up asking “did I win yet?” just tell him kindly that there is no prize, pour him a small sherry and let him go.
Now, I’m off to see what the WonderWeb has on offer.
First up, because I’ve been sashaying around, whistling golden oldies, I thought Jon might like this(although, he probably already has it!) https://www.amazon.com/Noel-Cole-Songs-Coward-Porter/dp/B001AKN7TU
What would our groyne-and-shag-obsessed chum in Norfolk like to find in his stocking. Well, don’t be silly –that wouldn’t fit in a stocking! Perhaps something like https://www.taste.com.au/recipes/croquembouche/d6c985a0-b853-474d-96a9-efa3c27a5bdf
He might like to share that with Scarlet. But I’d hate to start a fight so let’s see what she might like…I know she’s rather fond of old things (she’s friends with me, after all!) so maybe https://boxandbarrel.com.au/products/winston-cocktail-glasses-set-of-4
Elephant’s Child. like myself, is uncomfortable in Aussie heatwaves so perhaps this might be to her taste antarctica from the air
Mago, who gave me the idea to throw a party here, might like some Bix https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Ue9igC7flI
I’m pretty sure Daisyfae would be a starter for a dive! No, not a questionable drinking haunt! Although… but I had this in mind https://passions.com.au/scuba-diving-cairns/?gclid=Cj0KCQiA2uH-BRCCARIsAEeef3kSCZq8FEY55ES9vf75bjw6Ixc0Ja4ZN8LGKMvpozLZDtl64fiWeyEaAskCEALw_wcB
I need to check on my dough and I know I’ve missed a few names, but hey! this is 2020 and EVERYTHING is up the boohai so I hand over to you to cudgel what wits you may still have.
Savvy hasn’t shown up yet, but when she does, perhaps she’ll like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fRYFRvOUrvI
If Z pops in, as she might, noww that I’ve re-established things, she might be happy with this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3EJqvKhYzY
I thought I had time enough to fiddle about in here, but suddenly remembered the laundry!These automatic drying devices are wonderful, but one does still need to toddle downstairs and un-peg things from the lines. Still, the smell of sun-dried sheets is pretty hard to beat!
For those of you who celebrate Hannukah, I saw this and did a big LOL. Off to the laundry lines…
Most of you know I have the odd Viking in my family line so here’s a little Sverige tradition. If I’ve missed out someone on the present list, please, get plastered on Glogg and have fun!
