Advent 23 & 24; It's Christmas!!!! (Almost)


Christmas Tree

Just one final post before the big day! Sat here watching a festive episode of East Enders. The candles are burning, the tree lights twinkling and the first present has been opened. We have this little tradition in our house where we all open one present on Christmas Eve. Nothing major - just a little gift from a friend or family member. Mum selected a small gift from an old friend. We had to laugh when she opened it. Not only was there a bracelet (Mum doesn't wear jewellery other than a watch and wedding ring and everyone who knows her, knows this), but there was this mug:

An unusual choice for someone who's star sign is Pisces. But we did laugh! Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  See you on the other side :-)
