Happy Christmas to all my blogging friends and readers!
In the Cupboard House, the whole family has gathered in the drawing room to decorate the tree. Richard and Allan somehow managed to carry it up the stairs and through the door. Jenny is supervising Polly and Lois as they add some decorations, while Grandma Eleanor surveys the tree through her lorgnette and gives directions. Belinda is so excited she is standing on the sofa behind Grandpa Bernie so she can see! Already there are some parcels under the tree - what can they be? and who are they for?
The decorations are stored away in a box during the year, and Susannah is looking through the collection with John to find the old favourites. (David is very patiently waiting his turn - or is he perhaps getting a bit old to be excited by Christmas decorations?) There's a gold star to go on the top - Richard or Allan will put it in place when the rest of the decorations are done. Now the tree is up, and the visiting uncles and cousins have arrived - and there are only two more sleeps until Christmas Day!
I wish you all a happy and peaceful Christmas and a relaxing Boxing Day.
