I came home one day last week to find a package waiting for me. Inside was this delightful snow couple made by my very talented sister-in-law, Liz. They’re the perfect final touch to the decorations. Now I just need to do a spot of baking and wrap the presents, and of course, wish you all a very merry Christmas.
The predicted storm has arrived here in Wales. There’s a howling gale outside and rain lashing down so I hope everyone stays safe and warm, and if the weather is making you feel a bit gloomy then I’ve included a link to a very funny version of the Twelve days of Christmas. It’s read by Frank Kelly, an Irish actor best known for playing Father Jack in the comedy Father Ted. If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like if all of those gifts over the twelve days actually turned up it could well be something like this version. Hope it makes you smile.
Merry Christmas, WW x
Merry Christmas. xx
Lovely link – and very merry Christmas!
I like how they are holding hands for the photo… 🙂
Thanks (love the link… just imagining just my hens in the house!).
Glad you liked it, it always makes me laugh. Merry Christmas.
Thank you for your good wishes and of course the same to you. Christina
Hope the storm passes over soon, although the forecast is not good – it’s only playing at being a storm here so far! Have a lovely Christmas 🙂
What a brilliant gift WW. I have a knitted snowman too made by an aunt and always have fond thoughts of her when I hang it on the tree each year. Wishing you and Wellyman peace and joy at Christmas xxx
They’re brilliant aren’t they? And the same to you Anna. Lou x
A very merry Christmas to you and yours too. I’m loving the snow couple.

I’m sitting in my kitchen with the wind howling in off the Channel and rain lashing against the windows. Not very Christmassy and I never want to go outside again. Merry Christmas to you LouWW. D
It’s not Christmassy at all. We had a lull for a few hours this afternoon when the rain stopped and the wind died down but it’s all back again. The Rivers Usk and Wye were already close to bursting on Sunday. I’m with you on not wanting to go outside again. I’m trying to muster the enthusiasm to put together my seed orders and plan my plot for next year but it’s not happening. Still I saw the first signs of snowdrops yesterday. I’m hoping mince pies and homemade cassis will take my mind off the weather outside. Stay safe, dry and warm. Lou
Lucky you with those cute snowmen. Hope the storm passes through and you keep safe and snug. Merry Christmas!
Lovely snow people, beautifully made, lucky you. The link is a lot like “The Twelve Days of Christmas” by John Julius Norwich, illustrated by Quentin Blake, don’t know if you’ve seen it, it’s great. Quentin Blake’s drawings are always wonderful. Hope you have a really lovely Christmas and a very happy New Year. CJ xx
I love Quentin Blake’s illustrations. I think I have come across that version. Will have to look it up. Thanks for the tip. 🙂 Merry Christmas to you and lets hope 2014 is a fabulous gardening year.
They’re adorable! Merry Cjhristmas to you and your loved ones.
Of course, I meant Christmas. How did that j get in there?
Merry Christmas once more! x
I hope the storm is easing, I know its been bad there. Merry Christmas WW, have a lovely relaxing break xx
