Christmas time

The holidays have at last arrived for all of us.

They began well with french toast and strong coffee early this morning.
.

The Christmas cards are tacked up all along the hallway.
.

A Christmas tree and its carefully wrapped decorations were retreived from the loft. There were a few curses (from me) and much patience (from G - he has incredible amounts of patience, more than anyone else I know) as the lights went up.
.
I decided we all needed emergency rations of fruit cake and Wensleydale to keep us going.
.
.
But at last, the tree, lights and decorations are where they should be, and our holidays have begun.
.
Happy Christmas everybody.
