How much tinsel will we get this December? Or baubles? Or snow?!

I don't know about tinsel and baubles, but here are my 'Christmas' lights...

The new business venture is beginning to take off; next year's retirement plans are coming together quite nicely, TYVM!

No snow here please!

My camera behaving itself at night in Hainault (I use three including the phone and they all have different habits).

Wow, look at the decorations on that tree - how many elves did it take to do that?!

So far, my Christmas decorations consist of putting some lights in a vase. Maybe I'll do more tomorrow...

Fortunately I had a new boiler installed only last month so the house is warm as toast. Plus I got a new toaster so it's all good. laugh

However, one of the rose bushes in the snowy foreground no longer looks like the above photo - I went outside and hacked the hips off it and stuck them in a vase. Et voilà!

Food is a little more expensive in Las Vegas than elsewhere, but at least the stores have a sense of humor.

wish I could hack MY hips off, they are a bit prominent now

A bit of message-hacking now - Ren asked me to post this for her as she's having trouble uploading it. So here is her Christmas Pudding at the Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong. Yum!

I wish that I could post some lovely Christmassy photos in here as we have done in the past. I just cannot make Photobucket do it for me any more.So very sad .
I hope everyone who has been part of this forum has a Happy Christmas. Best wishes to Flopsy and every one!

Merry Christmas Ren, and to everyone in the Photo forum. This elf has been helping me decorate a window sill and now he's having a lie-down.

A free Flickr account hosts photos for here now ever since you could resize them some years ago.

A random old sign I spotted in Hertfordshire over the weekend.
