Hahaha - oh birdy, when told to jump, we say "how high?".

I am SO far behind that apart from a few efforts, Christmas this year may be a little short on the usual trimmings too. Getting things out of storage in the roof is way beyond expectation but maybe a return to my early years would not be a bad thing? Cotton wool snow and tinsel covered milk bottle tops! We pack old traditional things away so carefully that to attempt the usual unveiling of certain items means rummaging in large boxes which are neatly sealed - thereby upsetting (or losing even), old favourites! Oh no, no, this cannot happen! Next year maybe when my strong man is able once more to do the heavy work from a small roof space access, down the loft ladder and down two flights of stairs....
I await your usual 'gang' smiling cheerfully away birdy.. :-D
