Happy Christmas to all my lovely blogging friends I hope you have a lovely day with family and loved ones.

Thank you so much for your very kind wishes for my mother. She is getting better but it will be a slow process and she will have to take things easy for a little while.

Presents are wrapped and I have just the final preparations to do today. I will probably go into town to savour the Christmas atmosphere and watch all the last minute shoppers panicking.

I hope to have a relaxing lazy Christmas reading and watching movies and listening to music. What are your plans?

Cake is made

Stockings hung
