A very Merry WOYWW!


Argh!  We were without power for nearly 12 hours – luckily DHs office had power so he took all the food there to the office fridge – didn’t want to risk the bird being under-refridgerated! – and then once the guy came to silence the burglar alarm (3 HOURS of it going off) we finally started to get in the holiday spirit.  Food home, turkey marinating, and all is well.

Here is the obligatory shot (not a great one but done in a rush) of the tree:


Happy WOYWW and Happy Christmas to all!

  16. Happy Christmas Mary Anne, What a time to have power problems! Poor you. At least it got sorted before the big day. Smiled at your comment on one of the blogs about a spoiled surprise, as you discovered your son read your blog at uni. My Beloved Hubby caught me out a couple of years ago- I had no idea he read my blog! we live & learn, lol. Warmest Christmas hugs, Shaz #14 xxx

  19. Happy Christmas, Mary Anne. I trust all is now well for you, and that your family are now up and wreaking havoc with all those lovely parcels under the tree. Have a truly special day. I linked up early when I made the first cup of tea of the day – now commenting ‘cos I need to be close while hubby has a shower…

  21. Merry Christmas, Mary Anne. I have a feeling you are going to become my new best friend in 2014, because I see you are big on gelli plates and Bleubeard just got me one for Christmas. He was tired of me complaining that no one took me seriously (it’s been THREE years I’ve asked for one) and got it for me. He’s pretty PURRfect at times!

    Love the tree. Beautiful and ethereal in that light. Merry Christmas and happy WOYWW from #1.

  22. Beautiful tree. Hate power issues hope it is on soon. Merry Christmas.
