It's almost here but Merry Christmas Eve Eve anyway! x

Seasons Greetings and all that jazz! 
I finally feel Chrismassy - it won't last as i have an 8 hour train journey before I meet up with the relatives and pop lots of bubbles.  Might have to sneak some Babycham in my bag as I shall be a grouch after about 2 hours. 
The reason for my Christmas mood arriving just in the nick of time is reading some lovely blogs. Ahhhh like a breath of fresh festive air with bells and baubles on!

Anyway I've finished work for a few days hurrahhh so I'm celebrating... Bambi makes me smile.
I do have some decorations to sparkle whilst I blog.  I'm also listening to the Puppini Sisters Christmas album an yes I bought the Buble too!!!  We have some big band going onnnnnnnn h
This is Albert, my miniature tree with  vintage chandelier crystal and little lights.



Dried hog weed (I think) with vintage baubles in silvers & golds and Albert in daylight!

We had an early family Christmas party - Puttin' on the Ritz at Mater & Pater's house.  Not the best photo but this is my brother's (he's the ginge) mother in law who is a sweetie (she was really ill & just flown in bless her) my mama, papa, Charles's No.1 in a mischievous mood, me in vintage but looking a frump ha ha.  Anyway it was a lovely eve, nice to black tie every so often & being a historically military family since forever. It was nice to see the mess dress.  My brother spent much time in a peace core re-housing & helping to smooth the hatred of neighbours who had different beliefs or opinions.  He as some lovely stories of the wonderful people he met, quite humbling.  Whatever people think of the reasons behind conflicts & wars, there are some incredible people fighting for independence & safety of their families & countries.  It's just a shame we can't all just get along.  

Anway guess it's time I ate, the glass of rose I had before the babycham has made me tipsy & ramble on!!!

Wishing you all a very merry Christmas eve eve, Christmas actual eve and Christmas day.  Hope you get to spend it with your loved ones, if only in your dreams as the song goes.  My bf is off the coast of Africa but I'm sure I can dream up some mistletoe ha ha xxxxxxxxx
