All thoughts on this blog are mine, everyone see’s things differently and that’s how it should be, otherwise it would be a very boring world…

And if you don’t like it, no one is forcing you to read it.

If you post a comment it won’t always appear straight away, I don’t visit blogland everyday, so sometimes comments will take a little time to appear, I do read all comments and will post them all whether I agree with them or not just as long as there is no bad language

It is the personal thoughtfulness, the warm human awareness, the reaching out of the self to one’s fellow man that makes giving worthy of the Christmas spirit.

Changed my mind about the street lights, looked out this morning and the street looked like it was lit by a bright full moon.


30 days and counting

People are so worried about what they eat between Christmas and the New Year, but they really should be worried about what they eat between the New Year and Christmas.

The council have been and changed the street lights in our road, they used to cast a nice warm friendly yellow glow now with the new LED lights it’s a harsh bright white light, I am not sure I approve😀

I am getting quite excited, only a few days until I can start puting up the decs.⭐⭐



Sending Christmas cards is a good way to let your friends and family know that you think they’re worth the price of a stamp.

Aren’t Christmas tree lights expensive? We got our lights down to try them before we are ready to trim and some of the bulbs had gone, yes we still have/had the type of lights that had bulbs, well you can’t get bulbs anymore so we went hunting for new lights, £50 was the cheapest we could find to fit our tree!

I will admit to contemplating putting the old one with the bulbs out on, but hubby talked me round.

Christmas, in its final essence, is for grown people who have forgotten what children know. Christmas is for whoever is old enough to have denied the unquenchable spirit of man.

As I sit here looking out of the window at the lovely thick frost twinkling in the street lights, my mind drifted off to years gone by. When I first moved into this house the windows weren’t that good and on frosty mornings like this the insides would freeze. Jack frost wold leave a beautiful fern shaped pattern on the inside. Yes it was cold but also beautiful, something children of today are very unlikely to see.


Santa is real…

The earth has grown old with its burden of care But at Christmas it always is young, The heart of the jewel burns lustrous and fair And its soul full of music breaks the air, When the song of angels is sung.”
