Merry Christmas everyone!
Good morning, good afternoon and evening too, where ever you are my dear hearts, new friends, friends I haven’t met yet but know I’ll love. Did you have/are you having a lovely Christmas day?
We have had a wonderful peaceful day with much love, texts and emails from friends and cuddles from Theo.
Christmas here in England is all about the Christmas lunch and this means TURKEY, lots of it, just around 3pm, right after the Queen’s speech, so the turkey went in by 11am.
Open wood and coal fire all day, open prezzies and happy moments.
Theo could smell the turkey and knew there was a piece there for him, but had terrific trouble waiting.
At last our Christmas lunch was ready.
And Theo got up on his window ledge to wait for his share.
When it was his turn, after we ate, (remember, ex pub cat with little discipline if he’s allowed), he gobbled up the turkey so fast I couldn’t get a clear photo of him. I guess it met with his approval…lol. (Don’t worry he got a huge bowl of turkey in the kitchen.)
With our candles lit and a cheery fire, we watched the Doctor Who Christmas special. I’m afraid we sort of lost the plot. We ended up scratching our heads and asking each other where the heck was the story…and what was the story anyway? Anyone get it? Please let me know.
It’s evening now in England and I’m thinking of what has now passed, what is to come, where we’re headed. Robert is rubbing Theo’s soft ears and Theo is out like a light beside him. What a beautiful night this is…this Christmas night. The fire is cracking and the candles are burning down. There’s a soft, warm glow in my heart.
Merry Christmas to you and yours Veronica, lovely day, reminded me what Christmas is about, lost the plot a bit over the last few years… and today working am, and still now until tomorrow at nine… tho holidays seemed to be anywhere but where I am, so thank you again for reminding me and letting me feel the warmth xx
Thank you so much Marian. Goodness you have a busy Christmas. I hope you get to catch some of that Christmas magic for yourself. Much love from me to you. 🙂
Looks like you had a lovely Christmas. All quiet in Vancouver, and rather boring, so I’m going out for a walk along Robson Street to look at the tourists.
Hi Loraine, that’s always fun. I love Robson street for tourist watching and tourist crown surfing too! Bet it’s crazy today for the Boxing day shopping. 🙂 Much love. 🙂

Sounds like a peaceful Christmas Day. A fire, a delicious turkey, a cat to spend the day with – all wonderful. We had a very nice day also. Our gathering included a relative who will turn 102 next month. Every holiday spent with her is so precious!
Wow Alana, that’s so wonderful! Our friend, who is 100, ended up in hospital, but has now rallied and will be fine for a little longer. I completely understand what you mean. 🙂
Theo looks a contented cat.
We had a busy, exhausting, but happy Christmas day.
Looking forward to the new year now. 🙂
I bet your Christmas cake was scrummy Joanne. I’m looking forward to the new year too. XX
Thank you for sharing the way your celebrations went–all food, decorations and contented cat. That fire looks so cheery.
Hi Francene, I love our open fire. That’s the best thing about short winter days. 🙂

Oooooohhhhh! That turkey looks fabulous! Lovely Christmas.
Looks like the perfectly spent Christmas day! we had a ball here in our home in Tennessee. Cold and clear outside and warm and full of laughter inside. We opened presents, ate, laughed, played games, watched some Christmas movies, ate and laughed some more. It was wonderful and easy. The way all days should be.
Happy holidays and Happy Boxing day in England! Much love coming your way~~~~
Thank you so much Dawn. That is exactly as it should be. 🙂 Much love coming your way very soon. I’m really itching to paint or something. 🙂
Merry Christmas Veronica,
It sounds like you have a purr-fect day! We had a very relaxing day as well. I hope to continue the trend today : )
Hugs to you,
Hi Terri, we did continue the trend today. Hope you will too. 🙂
Turkey (roasted by someone else!), lovely fire, cookies, chocolate, presents, wine and calls to and from family around the world. Our Christmas days were similar, Boxing Day is shaping up as more of the same. *Bliss*
Nice! That’s what’s so wonderful about Boxing day, isn’t it? Leftovers! Love it. 🙂
Sounds like a lovely Christmas Day and your meal looked so yummy. Enjoy your time in England, Happy New Year, wishing you much happiness and joy.
Hi Patty, much love and happiness to you too. I hope you’ve had a lovely Christmas in BC. Chloe tells me the weather has been OK lately. Too bad the snow didn’t last a little while longer. 🙂
Soft warm glow over here too, after reading about your day/evening. Cheers!
🙂 I’m so glad Sara. 🙂 Much love and happiness to you dearest.
