twas the night before Christmas . . .

…when all through the house

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.

Dear All

I would just like to wish you, all my readers, a very special Christmas time. Whatever festival or celebration you may be observing, I truly hope it is filled with merriment, peace and happiness. I hope, in the midst of this frantic snow flurry we have experienced here in England, everyone has managed to get home for Christmas and can enjoy all the delights that the Yuletide brings…family, mince pies and the obligatory game of Charades. 

Thank you for all your support, kindness and forever sweet comments. You have made my first blogging year a joyful experience, and I wish you all the best of Christmas fun and fare.

So…there is nothing else really left to say, other than…

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight,
“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”
