Happy Christmas One and All

Well it's almost here! The tree is done at last. My favourite decorations some old silver baubles we have had for many years,a wooden angel given to me by my mother about 25 years ago and a newer cat one given to me by Sarah about 5 years ago. His name is Hamish as he reminds me of him so much.


Our dinner guests are about to arrive so I have to go. May we all wish you a happy and peaceful holiday so that we can celebrate the birth of Christ and look forwards to a better future in 2008.

Hi Mary,
The tree is lovely. I love old decorations they mean so much don't they. Hope your Christmas Day went well.
We had a lovely Christmas Day in Shepparton. I'll send you the Jorja Photo to your email address.
Thanks for your good wishes on my blog.
