It's nearly Christmas Eve

and I cannot believe it. The build up has not been easy for me . As you may know I was poorly for a while and have found it difficult to catch up.
Today I was up and had started doing various chores when my lovely DIL rang and asked if I was busy as they had thought of popping round. I am glad they did cos I had a wonderful time chatting, playing and drinking coffee laced with Bailey's (DIL and I - we only had one each - honestly) the girls played beautifully we listened to some music it was very relaxing.

Hope that you have all enjoyed your weekend and are ready for the 'big day'. I'm glad I took time out to reflect on the real reason for Christmas and enjoy simple pleasures- well sharing with my family was priceless. I don't know how I came to click on italics :-)

Let's see may have a photo or two.

Below my Mum's Christmas Cake - I went for rustic- I had to ice and decorate so quickly - apologies to the experts out there. The sugar flowers are not exactly accurate. BUT my cake is not even iced.

My angel - on my dresser - wonder what she's thinking?

Ooooops thought I'd turned it round. I think it looks more beautiful in real life. Have also finished decorating now.

My rather simple little village scene.

I have several Nativity scenes . ( Also have one waiting to be made) the one below was the first I ever bought- about 40 years ago. We were just married and had very little money and I think it was from Woolworths. It goes on windowsill every year.

Hope you liked my simple photos.



  1. Dear Anne, I'm glad you had the visit and enjoyed yourself. Indeed, that is the best part of this holiday. I'm glad we have become friends over this year.

  4. Merry Christmas Anne, your charm is that you're always so natural - even if I had to lie on my side here to admire the tree. Please don't ever change - love and a hug, Di xx
