nearly there

The birds have left one or two berries on our holly
the cake's almost ready to ice
Got the tree yesterday - only just fitted into the car.  The usual rescued bendy type from the reject pile - far more character!  He'll be officially named soon following his predecessors Bruce the Spruce and Lurch the Larch (our favorite tipsy tree that never stood up straight!!)
Just need to deck the boughs with our old faithfuls
 and officially switch on the burning bay tree
So all that remains is for me to wish you a Merry Christmas Sheffield style - we were singing here today, at the Royal:
(and you can read more about our local carols by clicking here)

and, last but not least, our very own village on Boxing Day.  Apologies for the sound quality, it was blowing a gale last year and I have to admit we misssed the dancing as we'd all overslept!)
and one of my favourite lines from our carols to finish with (though you really had to be there)!!

"Rolling downward through the midnight . . . . . while the music fills the quiv'ring air
Merry Christmas one and all
and lots of love

  1. I'm just catching up on your blog now. I love that you get a bendy tree! I can't wait to hear what you've named him (or her?)!
