The road to Christmas...

... is paved with good intentions! Blogging, gift knitting, baking and making, there's so much more I wanted to have done by now. Still it's the same every year and to keep the balloon afloat and the vital cargo (actual enjoyment of the festive season) intact I find I have to jettison what I can bear to manage without. So I won't dally here, much as I would like to, have a mince pie on me and I'll be back with the nail-biting conclusion of "Did Sarah finish her Christmas knits?" after the big day.

Season's Greetings to one and all.

I know what you mean. I've had to pare it right down this year. One of my best friends just said to me 'some years Christmas is just a different shape than you think it should be, but it's still Christmas'. I thought that was a lovely way to put it.

Have a lovely Christmas!

And what a lovely Christmas it was.

I am impressed with this blog and how it has grown. The writing is easy to read and light hearted enough to make me laugh.

PS I can vouch for the mincepies they were lovely.
