Sue, your photo is stunning. Everybody's photos have been great. I've been feeling left out of the photos lately. I can't even post in the theme photos this week since we're at my in-laws and I can't download any pictures. My internet signal is so slow it's embarassing. I'll have to wait until next week when I'm back home to do any more posting.

Sue, I'll never get tired of your photos of Corbiere! Absolutely beautiful shot!

I have been running about today, as we're having Christmas at my sister's tomorrow (they'll be away on the day, visiting the grandkids), so I've been making cards, thinking about wrapping presents, and oh, yes, getting the ice off my front steps so Mum won't slip when she arrives tomorrow evening to stay over Christmas Day with me...

Amidst all that I found time to hang out my winter flags. I was trying out my new idea of putting all three on the same bit of wood, and didn't notice till I looked at the photo that the one on the right says "aF aL aL" instead of "Fa La La". Ah well, it will have to stay that way for now

For the past few years, the local Anglican church has a held a small Christmas event early in December. There's carol singing, various stalls with home-made items (jams, cakes, handicrafts etc), a live nativity scene and entertainment. Maynooth usually provides the entertainment with a magic show and balloons. Here is Maynooth with a volunteer from the audience doing a variation on the "cutting a woman in half" routine. I don't know who enjoys it more - the big kid (Maynooth) or the little ones.

My best friend sent me a lovely Christmas Parcel the other day. We've never met, but we correspond regularly, and she's a great friend!

Hmmm. Either Santa's (sizable) sleigh has some serious exhaust emissions problems -or- there's a serious winter storm brewing above my front yard (this is looking east)...

*This one* was taken at the same time from the same spot looking north. I'm hoping Santa Boy's "collision insurance" is current and inclusive this evening...

This is my Christmas corner. The silver tree ornaments started of being in memory of various dogs who we have had. Now the whole tree is a reminder of them all.

The advent calander scenes are made by playmobil toys. They are brilliant and this year my 82 year old mother has had one as well and really enjoyed opening a box each day.

Something has gone horribly wrong with the postal service and virtually nothing has arrived for me in the way of gifts. The postman told me this morning that many people are asking him about parcels which haven't arrived. He said everything which arrived in the island has been delivered, they emptied the postal headquarters. Mine will no doubt arrive after Christmas.

One thing that has arrived today was the craft supplies I won on another forum site, a crafting site. Here are the goods which I bought with my gift voucher.

Hello Onimisi, good to see you back again.

Here is one of my favourite roads, the one I showed a corner of a couple of days ago. There is a door on the right next to the second car which is the entrance to my primary school. Noel Edmonds the DJ lived just past the house on the left, and two of my friends just beyond.

Last photo from our trip to the electrical museum. This brings back memories a TV from the 1950's



Remember when you had to actually get up and change the channel. Not that we had to do that too often as we only had 2 channels.

We got three channels down in southwestern Ontario, argus - Kitchener (which became a CTV channel), London and Wingham. Both of the last two were CBC, but Wingham was very local and very small town. If you wanted to hear the hog report, that was your station

Yesterday I showed my sister's big tree, so today here's my little one in my Christmas corner, with some opened presents and a few waiting for tomorrow.

A friend of mine is an artist. This year I commissionned three paintings from her to offer my children for Christmas. The kids chose the theme and agreed with her what sort of painting they would like. My eldest son even participated in the production of his two paintings, which he enjoyed enormously.

Here is a photograph I took of the paintings just before my husband hung them in their respective rooms. My personal favourite is the Zebra, though I think the pirate is pretty cool for a five year old. He was chuffed to bits with it.

I too like the zebra best, though understandably not the first choice of young children, all nice paintings though!

I managed to stick to my plans to take photos today even though the rain nearly stopped me. This is where I spent 3 years playing rugby and cricket at school and you can see the results of the earlier rain.



I remember when we had two channels as well, but what was on was so much better than the stuff spread across a couple of hundred now. Quality will always win over quantity.

Mum and my niece had dinner at my house today. Okay, it was leftovers from the big dinner cooked by my brother-in-law on Sunday, augmented by Swiss Chalet, but I still thought the occasion called for the use of my new place mats. We'd finished eating, and cleared the plates away, and I returned to find Katt rolling on the new mats in ecstasy! They're a rather thick, ribbed material and he seemed to just love the texture. You'd have thought I'd rubbed catnip on them!



Katt is allowed on the table when there's no food on it, as it is his route to the window. Of course, the place mats will go straight in the laundry!

This is Lucy, my friend's kitten. It was her first Christmas and this was taken just before she got a big shock when trying to bat the flame with her paw!
