Welcome again;oh how I have come to love these visits and let's hope that they shall carry on into the New Year!!

This past week we have been to four Nativity Concerts in which our grandchildren were starring in.

This is what the run up to Christmas is all about and here I shall share some more special moments with you all.

Right you know the routine by now; take your teas and coffees ! Also bring the Mince Pies and biscuits out here.

Also for a treat I have made some Chelsea Buns; the first time ever ;I hope you will enjoy them.

Right are we all settled and I shall begin......................


A run up to Christmas

blessed with young hearts

Nativity miracles.......................

Riley a Joseph

Krystal a snowflake

Ellie a down and out called 'Will.'

Neyo a newspaper reporter

Charlie a rapping innkeeper..............................

Oh how our hearts

filled with such pride

Oh how our heartfelt pride

reaching heavens above........

Young talent beyond years

Eternal gifts for each heart



to cherish forever.............

Many a solo sung

with voices so pure

so magical

innocence so true..........

Voices sweet as a crisp winter's born.....................


Never ever will we forget

A scene so wondrous each moment so treasured...............

Tender visions as clear as crystal

I will treasure forever

Violins filling each crevice of each welcoming heart

I sat cushioned in golden pride

Thankful for the teachers teaching our babes

Yuletide a passion;full of pride,joy and love.



Each new moment

Each day a new joy sings

My heart brimming over with pride

That Christmas aura always bewitching

I proudly share with one and all

A feeling so wondrous

Sweet memories



Each Christmas concert

Innocent voices so bright

Never to be missed.


Oh how I love

The run up to Christmas

Golden moments

Memories so wondrous


Each little one

Filling each heart with love

So bewitching

To the heavens above.


Today I thank

For each day so wondrous

I did applaud

All festive adventures.


Those first footsteps

Onto life's right road

Strength a-thriving

Each survival instinct thriving

As each battle is overcome

That tender shining light we taste

Our wondrous ability to cope

That magical laughter of love

That so long awaited warmth of hope

Success is ours to cherish

My heart and soul I so sincerely share .


Thank you for each and every wonderful friendship I have made here in the midst of my hubfamily.

I appreciate you all more than I can say and may all our Christmases be bright.


Well I hope you enjoyed this visit again my friends. I am now going to ice my Christmas cake .

Hope fully we may be able to squeeze in another visit before the big day. Take care as you travel home and thank you once again.

By the way I can see you enjoyed my Chelsea Buns.None left!!!Oh well my fault for putting them all out I suppose;maybe you can bring your own biscuits next time.

Why don't we have a rota !!! Oh please don't be offended ha ha! I was only teasing!!!At least I think I was.

Right away I go to begin another busy day again.

Lots of love to you all.

I am stuffed by all your beautiful tasty treats this fine Christmas. I love all the wonderous flavours and smells that are offered up at this time of year. The pine needles and cones a glistening, sleigh rides and bells a ringing. The turkey and all it's trimmings and carolling in the streets lifting up our Lord Jesus.

Thank you for all the lovely times you've shared this year with us Eddy, your thoughts come out in beautiful verse and lift all our hearts to the heavens. I send you my blessings and peace to you and yours this Christmas. Be healthy and happy and have a blessed New Year.
