By the way….
My blog is worth $358,482.90.
How much is your blog worth?
And Merry Christmas to you too, Mark…
That video was awesome and the comic even funnier. The snowman my wife made had a carrot nose as well. I didn’t see any bunnies, though. I think it’s too cold for them :)
Merry Christmas to you as well. I hope you enjoy spending time with your visitors.
And I hope you have a great time with your family too. This must be your daughter’s second Christmas? She will be getting into the Christmas groove more this year, I expect. Have fun!
That is the coolest video I’ve seen in a long time. How original, funky and creative! Maybe I’ll make one like that with me taking photos…
My two girls are away at grandmother’s house, so I’ve got some quiet time to get ready for the holiday. I’m always happy to have it, but within a day or so, I wish they were home again. I don’t think I’ll ever understand the parent/child relationship.
Merry Christmas! And tell your boys that their there’s a lot of people who think their mum is way cool and not a stodgy old person. My kids already think that of me! :D
Why, Mr Peteej, you are making me blush! Very kind of you to say so, I need all the compliments I can get at the moment :-)
I know what you mean about the kids though, I love my boys coming home but within hours I am gritting my teeth about the mess they make and the amount of food they consume and the washing and the ironing and they hog the TV….. but I miss them horribly when they are gone again. Well, for a time :-)
Well I can’t say that I thought much of the music. It is a shame that we don’t get to see the book in all it’s grandeur. I like the way she was able to keep working despite all that noise going on!
Have a spectacular Christmas Diane, keep safe and make lots of those yummy appetisers… Cheers!
Diane – It will be her second Christmas indeed and is going to be so much fun. In fact, she just said “Merry Christmas, Dadda” to me on the phone!
Ange – it was a bit of a riot! And I would have loved to see how she finished the exposed spine off too.
Thank you for the Christmas wishes, hope you and yours have a great time too. I’m going to have a go at some of the appetizers for sure!
Paul – that is so sweet! It’s things like that you will remember forever… even when she is as grown up as my babies are…. :-)
Very funny video. She has a wonderful space.
I’m getting my tree up today. I know I’m late too.
I know! That is one of my New Year jobs – to turn a bedroom into my workroom so that I can reclaim my kitchen. This would be good for two reasons 1) My kitchen wouldn’t be permanently untidy and 2) As the new workroom would so far away from the kitchen (2 floors away), I wouldn’t be munching on biscuits and snacks all day long…. :-)
As for the tree, just finished, then the inevitable happened, I have just found the lights for the tree, untangled them ….. and they don’t work…..and I can’t find the packet of spare bulbs :-(
the cartoon is so cute and funny….and I love your last book…the red is gorgeous….
I hope your Christmas is peaceful and filled with laughter Diane….
having a sense of humour in difficult times….helps…
Charlotte and I went to see one of your brilliant English movies yesterday… Death at a Funeral……..it was hilarious and proves to me that the English are the masters of humour !!!!
Diane – I just wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas! I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday!
I’m glad you liked my video. Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year!
We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Oh, bring us a figgy pudding and a cup of good cheer
We won’t go until we get some, so bring some out here!
Thanks, Kim, well, you’ve got to laugh haven’t you. Life is so unpredictable at times, if you didn’t laugh – you’d cry :-) I haven’t seen that movie yet but if it is that funny, I’ll definitely put it on my list. Went to see ‘The Holiday’ thinking it would be a fluffy distraction but it was so ‘near to the bone’ it had just the opposite effect I need a laugh for sure :)
Cris, thanks so much and I wish the same to you and your family. Lots of love, laughter – and yummy food!
KiwiPulse – as you can see we all loved the video, so thanks for that! And thank you for the carol. You sang it beautifully :)
ah yes the holiday …I thought the Jude Law Cameron Diaz story was very touching….but the Kate Winslett ….cad was pretty off…
I thought Jack Black made up for him big time….
your mystery prize will be in the mail next year …next year (sounds strange doesn’t it)….it’s a secret haha….that’s why I have called it a mystery prize….
3 sleeps until Christmas…and I haven’t finished my Africa Painting…(I’ve pulled a muscle in my shoulder turning the rotten painting…so I’m about to look it up on the web as I think it may be worse than I think….eek I’m left armless….
will stop waffling on about me…..have you got all your pressies wrapped? and the christmas cake cooked?
only joking about the cake :P
Oh dear – that is bad news! I hope it isn’t serious – is it your painting arm? You will need extra help getting ready for Christmas now then…
My number 2 son and I have just returned from doing the big Christmas food shop. Waitrose was insane and had actually run out of trolleys – eek! You couldn’t get at the food for people queuing to pay – but it was all very jolly – staff going up and down the queues offering sweets and cake – everyone in a surprisingly good mood.Now I just have to fit it all in the fridge :-)
I am making Christmas lunch for a vegan and a diabetic so it was quite a challenge catering for everyone – only number 2 son and me, who will eat whatever is going :-)
Thank you so much, I shall look forward to receiving the mystery prize – how lucky am I? I remembered the answer from reading your interview – and I think the time difference was in my favour :-)
sounds like you are a busy bee Diane :)
a vegan and a diabetic…that would be a challenge :)
your shopping experience sounds very jolly and it’s so nice when they give out goodies like that…absolutely the best way to put on those Christmas kilos..
I think it is afternoon over there when I am going to bed….and you were in the right place at the right time hehe
the arm’s not good Diane….but I will wait until after Christmas to visit the doctor….not my painting or typing arm thank goodness …but everything is taking twice as long…hehe that means I have got out of cooking over Christmas…not that I was offering …My Mum and brother are the experts in that area and they have given me the job of bringing the xmas bon bons :)
