Our dear children will start to arrive in a few days. There are a few finishing touches needed. The English toffee still needs to be made. I always like to leave a few things to finish after the house is dressed for Christmas. Carols play in the background. Oliver wanders about wondering why he is "jingling all the way". Yes, I've attached a few silver bells to his red collar.
I want to wish each and every one of you a merry Christmas and a healthy and happy new year.
