It's Christmas Eve.



To everyone who visits these pages, may I wish you all a very enjoyable Christmas Eve, and a wonderful Christmas Day for tomorrow.

May your Turkey be moist, any gifts be to your taste, and the day's company to your liking. If, like me, you are putting a Yule Log on your fire tonight, may it burn well.


This is ours (above); which will be put on the fire later tonight.

This evening we shall listen to Carols from Kings, speak with friends and family, and enjoy the warm ambiance of our small 'cosy' home.

We wish you all a very happy festival, however you choose to celebrate it. Cro & Lady Magnon xx

    1. Nice to meet you Christina. I don't think I've ever visited Lancashire, so am not qualified to comment on its sunny-ness. Have a lovely Christmas, Cro x

  9. This morning we are going to see a comedy film The Wonderful Garden of Bella Brown (I think it's called) and if we get there in time they will give us our breakfast. After that we shall decorate the tree. Christmas dinner will be a fine piece of fresh fish from the Waldviertel carp ponds (they are in the north of Austria near the Czech border).

    Have yourselves a good one Cro and Co.

  22. I do not comment often. I do not always agree with what you write but I do find your point of view very interesting. My family is also spread near and far, not so sure it is quite the blessing it was in our younger days.

    Your home is lovely. Happy Christmas to you and Lady M.

    1. Don't worry, I do try to stir things up occasionally. Being all over the world does have it's benefits, but not necessarily at Christmas. However, we have spoken to all of them today. Best wishes, Cro x
