Merry Christmas

I'm waiting for the bread to cook and doing other preparations for Christmas lunch (arduous tasks like unwrapping the blue cheese, laying fennel salami out on the plate and getting the oat crackers out of the box). The presents are unwrapped and have been lovingly played with, Frank Sinatra is crooning Christmas tunes on iTunes and Martin is reading Mr Men books.

So I thought I'd take this opportunity to say Merry Christmas everyone. Peace on earth and goodwill to all men and women, and love to the babies who remind us that everything is always new, everything is filled with promise and life is truly a miraculous and wonderful thing.


  1. Snap! I'm taking a breather while the bread does its thing for its final five minutes ... Frank is singing Santa Claus is coming to Town on the cd player, and the children are crowded around the 12 year old's Christmas present (iPod).

    Have a lovely lovely day!

  2. merry christmas to you too!

  3. Merry Christmas Miss Penn.
    We're up in Bangalow and have had an unexpected lovely day. Asha has been surfing on her new board, Lulu bashing away with her new carpentry tools and Geordie sucking on Sophie la Girafe .. all is well.
    Will see you all upon our return. XX
