Welcome to family, friends and visitors. Here you will find interesting (hopefully) pictures of my part of the world, news of our household and probably, long ramblings about anything that catches my interest.

Christmas greetings to you all.
I stayed up late last night watching the Midnight Mass on TV, a bit high church but Christmas is the celebration of Christ's birth. Also tied in with celebrating the turn of the year and nowadays a time for friends and family to get together. So hopefully it is a time of celebration for all.
Afterwards I filled the stockings which are part of our family traditions even if the youngsters are all grown up. I have to admit to feeling rather tired this morning but enjoyed fudge with my morning coffee and was fully awake for the present giving accompanied by croissants and Buck's fizz or orange juice..
I forgot to take a photo of the presents under the tree, a vast amount considering we were only 4 adults. Lots of nice things to eat and drink as well as carefully chosen smaller gifts. We plan to play the Game of Thrones Monopoly later this afternoon. We've had a quiet day indoors while outside it had rained on and off.
These are the crochet dragon slipper bootees I crocheted for Sally who is wearing them at the moment. Just for fun I made a matching neck warmer with the left over wool. Other home made gifts were jam from our blackcurrant bushes and a selection of biscuits.

A Happy Christmas to you all.
We had a lovely church service this morning.

Thank you, Ruta, for including the link in order to read about your Lithuanian traditions. The holidays are both joyful and sad. I enjoy very much learning about other holiday celebrations, and am often quite surprised by the variety as well as similarities. Love the slippers.
