Merry Christmas!

Christmas is coming – The goose is getting fat – Please put a penny in the old man’s hat – If you don’t have a penny, a ha’penny will do – If you don’t have a ha’penny, then God bless you.

A bit of peace and bliss at the beach today. A calm before the storm. Literally. The (ungrateful) weatherman is forecasting a Christmas Day storm of snow turning to rain with high winds for tomorrow. I expect we’ll get mostly rain. However, it’s the winds that can get me down.

We won’t notice this time though. Just so glad that we are all home here together. Both boys are home. The turkey is brining. The tree is lit and decorated. We’ll be busy catching up, playing games and just general silliness. Revisiting some traditions and creating new memories.

May the magic of the season gladden your heart and fulfill your desires!

Merry Christmas!

    Merry Christmas to you all. I am delighted that you are all together to play out the traditions you have made over years and make new memories to look back on in the years ahead. May you have a day filled with joy and laughter and may the wind blow by without you noticing!

    Happy Christmas. We had a very hot Christmas Day, up to 34 degrees C. Today it’s much cooler, only 26 and there is a summer storm brewing.

      34c!!! Holy Smokes!! Sounds pretty fabulous to me. Itโ€™s 26C here too, only ours is -26C ๐Ÿ˜ณโ„๏ธ. Back in an unusual deep freeze. Hmmmm perhaps itโ€™s time to dig out my passport ๐Ÿ˜‰
