Christmas Eve

No one has time to read this so I won't burble on but will post it just for the sake of completeness. Today, a third penguin turned towards its left.

And the little gift was a tree, which.... drum roll...

... I assembled. Yes, two things to slot together and I managed it all by myself.

And that's the end of the Advent gifts, though there's one more flap to lift tomorrow. Judging by its shape I think it might be a - penguin.

I hope those of you who check up on my witterings enjoyed sharing our Advent gifts - thank you so much to our lovely Daughter 2, who went to all that bother.

Have a lovely Christmas, all bloggy friends, whether commenters or lurkers. (I'm assuming that the lurkers are friendly too.) I wish you all the blessings of the season.

I've done the wrapping at last. Hooray.


  1. I sincerely hope that last flap is a penguin... or there may a flap of a different sort!

    Merry Christmas and thank you (and D2) for sharing this fun advent trip. I've been feeling rather un-festive this season and it certainly cheered me up, waiting every day to see what was opened and posted.

  2. I have enjoyed watching the Advent advance in your household. Enjoy tomorrow - Happy Christmas. ( I'm blogging while I'm waiting for youngest son to arrive safely. He has just landed at Heathrow!)

  3. Happy Christmas, P and R. May you and your Mum and family Have a pleasant laughing time. Hope the penguins enjoy themselves too!

  4. Merry Christmas to you and yours. A peaceful new year slso.

  5. That would be 'also'! Blame the champagne!

  6. I'll de-lurk and wish you and your family a very merry Christmas!

    Happy Christmas to you and all the family.
    Have enjoyed the journey through Advent - and am so glad there was more than one penquin out of step with the others!
    What a thoughtful daughter you have to set this all up.

  8. Merry Christmas Isabelle!

  9. Merry Christmas Isabelle !! Oh, yes, I am mostly a lurker but adore reading your blog !!!
