A diverse offering twixt the interesting, the unusual, and the amusing.

It's all done-n-dusted. I've managed to buy a good looking 'properly reared' Turkey, the sprouts are waiting for me up at Haddock's, and all the prezzies are wrapped and ready for distribution. So that's it, if it ain't been bought, it ain't gonna be bought!
Now, on with the fun..... The festivities kicked-off here last night with a pleasant bash chez my friend 'St Theresa of the Floral Tribute'; and with any luck the silliness will continue for the next week or two!
So, have fun, enjoy yourselves, and make it the best Christmas ever. Cro xx
We went with friends to the Scallop festival in Whitianga; a charming
seaside town in the Coromandal District.
Had a great time...5000 people, lots of wine...

The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 45 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), a Border Collie/Black Lab' cross called Bok, a cat called Freddie, plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
