Christmas Eve.


I think donna excelled herself with this Santa. thank you so much.

Good Morning, and I hope you are having a wonderful Christmas Eve. It is such a special day. Heathrow has arrived in my part of the world not the planes but the freezing fog, what a morning. No plans as such today a bit of tidying etc. and some telly no doubt its nice to have the time.  I must stay away from making Mince Meat pies, will try my best but the urge will be there. Old habits and traditions are hard to loose. Will try to walk for a Sunday paper but if the fog stays I will nip round in the car.
Last night we watched the Dancing it was great and I think the best man won.  Did I hear Tess calling Bruce Sir before he sang his number had not heard or read anything about him being Knighted in the papers yet or have I missed something? I remember there was a bit of a stuchie last time when he did not get a knighthood so maybe he will in the New Year's Honours?
Wanted to get this entry done early just in case of what I don't know.
Now I would like to wish you all A Very Happy Christmas and hope you all have a lovely day and Santa is good to you. Off now for some breakfast.
                                                  Take care and Love

Sorry you have the freezing fog my friend.  We had it for four days but it is gone now.  Well, Becky made some mince pies and that is one thing I am not going to deny myself.  I always have a mince pie after the Christmas dinner.  I was told the occasional treat will not do harm as long as you go back on the diet the next day.  I agree about Mark.  That final show dance was superb.  All those wonderful lifts.  I loved the way he sang and smiled through some of his dances.  Yes, you are correct.  She did call Bruce "sir". I remarked on it to Mike and said he is not a knight.  So maybe it will be announced in January.  I think it is deserved.  O.K. his jokes are a bit naff now but he has entertained us for so many years and in his late seventies can still turn a sprightly step on the dance floor.
Like you we are relaxing today apart from making the trifle (all low sugar) and painting my nails.  A very Happy Christmas to you and yours!

"Strictly Come Dancing" is one of my favourite T.V. shows. We have followed 12 weeks of fantastic routines, and last night's finale was no different. It was hard to choose who should win the 2006 trophy because both couples danced extremely well. I'm glad Mark and Karen won though.

Merry Christmas to you and all the family.
All the best for the year ahead.
Leigh :-)"
