Santa Claus is coming tonight

This was the last Advent present: a hedgehog wearing a Santa hat. Hedgehogs are significant to Mr L and me... and not all that often associated with Christmas, so well done and thank you, dear Daughter 2.

We went for a walk today...

... through the Ravelston Woods to Blackhall, where, to our disappointment, the café was closed - you'd think it was a holiday season or something.

However, we went to Marks and Spencer instead because... well, you know. It was there. And so were cheese scones.

Then we worked them off by walking along the cycle track...

... and homeward.

Then we watched "Bargain Hunt" and wrapped the presents. Later, I did some ironing. Got to make Christmas Eve special.
So Happy Christmas when it comes (or, in my Antipodean friends' cases, when it came). We shall be here in our silent, tidy house... quite enjoying it.


  1. Happy Christmas to you and your family, Pam! Santa Claus has already been here as it's now Christmas morning.

  2. Sounds like a perfect Christmas! Our house was tidy last night, but any more, Santa has been :) Have a lovely day.

  3. Sometimes it's so nice just to be too. Merry Christmas Pam.

    I hope you enjoyed the day, regardless of the lack of children?

  5. Happy Happy Christmas! Hugs from Marcheline (aka Mrs. Splapthing) at Mental Meatloaf!!

  6. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas; it sounds peaceful and lovely!

  7. You're too funny! It looks like you had a wonderful quiet Christmas. And now, your turn for the holiday mayhem should be upon you -- I hope you have a grand time. Love the pretty peek at your Christmas quilt!!!
