The decorations are up!

I managed to find something to wear for the wedding last Friday. I was so glad to get it done. I was surprised at how much it was starting to worry me.

This morning I put the finishing touches to the Christmas decorations. My poor crib seems to have lost all of the moss from its roof. Well, it is over 25 years old now No pics I’m afraid, as my computer doesn’t want to recognize my phone at the moment. I know what we’ll be eating on Christmas day, of course, but what about the other days, especially Christmas Eve, any suggestions?

This afternoon we had a hail storm, it lasted quite a while. When I went outside later there was quite a snow - I mean hail drift.

These are pictures from last Christmas :


Yes, we have a fire place but it is not in use. We don't have room for a big tree anymore and this one fits snugly.

God Jul is a "Norwegian" teddy. he comes out at Christmas, but sulks (even though he's been given some chocolates) because he's put away for the rest of the year. 

Stockings at the ready...

Good on you! Mine are still not up. Even though those are not the pics from this year you do have a rather cute display.

So glad the wedding dress has been found. :-)

My best ever christmas meal was in Normandy and it was on christmas eve with obligatory bouch de noel to finish. When full we then went out to do christmas shopping for presents and a tree.

Christmas day was no big deal...

Did we do wrong?

Glad that you found some glad rags for the wedding and that you get to wear them again!

Beautiful. I only have very little up now. We are supposed to put up the tree this weekend, so hopefully we'll get it done - the kids have been begging!

Doris said...

And now I have a few up, and the tree too :-)

Doris: Glad you managed to decorate in the end

caroline: We still haven't got used to Christmas day being the day that most people are travelling home. it's also difficult to see everyone going back to work on 26th. One year I had a lesson at 8 on boxing day morning!

Margaret: Now I have not one, but two comments from a famous playwright!! I expect that you have decorated by now.

Elisa: If ever you want to throw out your beautiful PEACE stocking hooks you know where to send them...

I'm sure that you will have lots of help decorating the tree!
