Aww, great to see your clever photo art again, Clare. Our decs are up.
Must be a strange one for you this year but I really hope there’ll be no falls, breaks or teeth broken for you this year!
Have a safe and sweet Christmas. x

thank you Yvonne and Emma ! yes I am full onto it though Emma - Nothing spoils Christmas ! it's a special time of year going back to the origins of it. You spoke too soon with falls - had terrible one straight over the stair gate, broke that and busted both ankles, hips, elbow, ribs......Busted meaning strained and dislocated rib. Whilst not hooked on painkillers they do allow a bit of movement and joy, hence old Christmas photos. I am hoping people will post their Christmas photos or experiences on here as we seem to be lacking ! 17 days to go ! CB

Clare, you must be in so much pain! Iíve been battling costochondritis since October, which is inflammation from the sternum to the ribs and it has been agony and Iíve been on painkillers from the doc, but to have ankles, ribs, hip and elbow all hurting at the same time, I canít imagine the level of pain! I hope you are getting as much rest as is possible and feel loads better by the time Christmas arrives.
Going back to the origins of this time of year...I have a Yule log with three holes drilled for taper candles and Iíll be adding spruce and seasonal foliage and marking the return of the light. Always seems mad in what is only the start of the winter but gradually the days do grow lighter and longer.
Iím a winter person though. I love the autumn and winter with the shorter days and predictable weather.
Hot water bottles, blankets, a cup of tea, a dog by my side and Iím happy.

You rest up the best you can. Iím sure the doggies are helping to look after you. xxx

Oh dear Clare that sounds really bad you need to take more water with it!! Hope you're not trying to outdo our Gordon on the pain endurance stakes and hope that you are both feeling a lot more pain free by the time Christmas arrives. xx

Ha ! yes more water less rain too.! all ok. got some big painkillers from GP and doing fine. I don't think anyone will outdo Gordon !
I am with you Emma , the days grow so much lighter after 21st each day and then its planning for seeds and spring ! I don't like the damp but love those cold blue sky days - if we had more of those the greyness of winter wouldn't seem so bad. I am recycling photos ! if santa can keep materialising in the same costume then I am recycling photos !
