Christmas chat

This is where I'm sitting at the moment and I'd love you all to join me. I'll put the kettle on for a cuppa and open a bottle for those who'd like something stronger. We can huddle up close under furry blankets with our toes toasted by the fire and listen to Christmas carols while we tuck into fruit scones with Baileys Irish cream and natter way into the early hours. :-) Who's up for this :-D xxx

Well I would be under normal circumstances Lyn - as you know I don't live that far away from you. However, I'm a bit farther away at the moment as I think I told you in America. Have fun - it looks & sounds lovely. Hope you've got plenty of parking - I think there might be quite a queue outside your door very soon!!!!! xx 🎄🎄🎄🎉🎊🥂

If I'd flown with Virgin I'd have got Richard Branson to whizz me back for a few hours but I flew with BA. Still I'll imagine - nice mince pies & a drop of malt. Hope you all enjoy. xx 🎄🎉🎊🎅🏻

That looks so cosy & welcoming. I don't like Bailey's but love fruit scones so either a white wine spritzer or a coffee will do nicely, thank you. 😊

Love your fire surround by the way, I want one!!

Have a very Happy Christmas & all the very best for 2017.
