Had my parents over for dinner yesterday so made a full Christmas dinner - turkey, ham, sausage meat stuffing, roasties. Followed by Christmas pudding and cream. Only thing missing was the Brussels Sprouts. Was delicious if I say so myself

And best thing is that we have enough leftovers for today's dinner!

The only decoration I have older than that, is a Christmas log that you put a candle in, that I made when I was in primary school and my Dad kept and gave to me when I moved into my first house.
In spite of all my moves, including leaving the Uk fr Ireland I still have a pretty artificial greenery and ribbon hanging ball decoration. Very well made and realistic

I bought it in Woolworths in Kirkwall, Orkney in... 1992 .. Still as good as it ever was and it brings me comfort in many ways .

I saw a sign for Christmas trees today, it was in an empty lot. Either they're reeeeaaaally planning ahead, or they're a tad late.

Ha ha this reminds me about a week ago I was flicking through the music channels and one of them was showing the "greatest power ballads of all time" and on came Frankie Goes to Hollywood- The Power of Love.
I thought it was so random for the last week in June

Hi Christmas peeps!

I’m looking at #christmasinjuly on Instagram and there’s some great pics of people (mostly in Australia) with their Christmas trees up, at Christmas parties wearing Christmas jumpers, with Christmas lights in the street and there’s even an ice rink in an Aussie town with people skating on it!

Watching top of the pops from 1987 last night and it finished up with fairytale of New York in the TOTP studio. Shane McGowan was so out of it his lip synching was unbelievably bad, not that he'd have cared LOL.

Ha ha, saw that alright. One of the music channels had on the Top Ten songs of 2003 the other night and at number ten was The Darkness - Christmas Time.
Don't know whats going on but I seem to be clicking onto Christmas songs a lot lately
