A few days shy of christmas.

Not long now till "the big day"
 all the presents are wrapped and under the tree, we've done the big shop, the house is shining like a new pin, the doggies are bathed and I'm erm.....knackered!!


So I'm going to sit in the snug with a nice magazine a slice of chocolate log and a large sherry,


as soon as dusk falls I'll be lighting loads of candles and I've got "the snowman" to watch.



 
"The stockings are hung by the chimney with care"


this is mine that I got from London,
and a smaller one for mr lucey.


 
On second thoughts I might just have 40 winks!!

HE HE! knackered did make me smile, thats how I feel today. Did a family tea party yesterday for 16....6 of them children under 8...erm shall we say we had two orange juice spills, one lemonade and one coke.....and copious wiping of faces through eating chocolate pennies. I did two days of baking...eeeekkk!....spent today tidying up on my tea blog break and catching up.

Merry Christmas.
Ps.loving those tipsy looking reindeer.
