A Christmas Eve Quickie

Don't panic - I'm not about to (as the title suggests) throw my 'middle aged' love life your way (Perish the thought! o_O )
But it is 'Christmas Eve' and this will be 'quick'.   

Life's tough at the moment and I have a whole load of 'blogger fodder' rolling around in my head but for now that's where it's staying - It's Christmas Eve and I'm feeling 'Christmassy' - "do you hear me brain?" - "No negativity allowed!"

'Christmas Eve', is my absolute favorite day of the year and today I have had a fabulous day! 

A couple of glasses of 'Tia Maria'
a 'Rod Stewart' CD and a delightfully excited 'Littlie'
(covered from head to foot in flour) had me giggling
my way through the Christmas baking.
'Littlie' - despite her condition preventing her from sampling festive foods
(other than the specially cut snowman shaped cheeses) enjoyed helping
mummy in the kitchen . 
The Christmas 'cake toppers' that have been around since my eldest was small
look just as good on my incredibly tiny *cheaters cake*
as they would have done if I'd had the energy to bake my own.
The presents are wrapped
The stockings are filled
Rudolf's sorted
Santa's sorted
I'm anticipating Christmas morning with butterfly tummy and skipping heart (as I always do)
I love the chaos - the mess that out does all messes - the *pringle crumb* carpet and the tripping over of the long and the short legs sprawled out into the middle of my very small dinning room. 
Here's one (A Christmas morning) we made earlier :O)

'Littlie's' sound asleep - shhhh....!  
Now all I have left to do (before putting my feet up with a glass of the hard-ish stuff)  is to thank you all - Dear, 'readers of my rambles' for your support and encouragement over the last year and to wish you and yours....

Thank you as always for allowing me to share 

God bless you and yours

'It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas' :o)

No ramble tonight (Not sure Iv'e got one in me) but as it's a week since I last blogged and Christmas is my absolute favorite I thought I'd share my decs with you. 

It's taken me nearly a month (low on spoons) and damn near finished me off but my house is now well and truly 'Christmas'ed!' :O)
Won't need to turn 'Littlie's' sensory lights on for a while, actually, there are no sockets left to plug 'Littlie's sensory lights into! lol

I love Christmas and 'Littlie's' eye's are shinning like a child's eye's should - so on both counts - Worth every *drag yourself up mum* minute! 

And now for the grand tour

Kitchen window sill

'Littlie's bedroom
Her tree has been up since early Nov
She was keen bless her

Front room window sill

Lounge view from dinning room

Back door

Old fish tank which stands in my dinning room all year round
looking like a heap of S.... 'old fish tank' to be magically
transformed into 'Littlie's' winter wonder land each December.


View of dinning room from lounge

Family tree - some touching allowed
Joint effort.

Lounge through to dinning room

Mummy's tree
An evening job, on my own with Rod Stewart ringing in my ears
Absolutely NO TOUCHING allowed lol
Snow scene under 'Mummy's Tree'
Again - No Touching :o)

And last but by no means least
The Loo ;o)

I wish you all a peaceful Christmas and - I'd like to say a Tory free new year but as that's unlikely I'll wish you all a happy one and pray you get it! 

Thank you for allowing me to share 

God bless you and yours
