WOYWW 238 - the Merry and Bright edition

Merry Christmas to you all on this festive occasion. I hope you all have a love and happiness filled day, and that you know joy and peace next year.  I've not been very good (ok, epically bad may be a better way of putting it) at joining in with WOYWW these last few weeks, but I had to come on over today!

For us, Christmas is a tame affair this year. We were going to have moved house 10 days ago, so our Christmas decorations remained in storage. That has been delayed until the New Year and so we've had to make do with whatever was available.... It's ok, but I'm already looking forward to next year and being able to "do" Christmas properly. At the end of the day, though, as long as we've spent a lovely and precious day together, that's all that matters and I'm very grateful for what I DO have as many people don't have as much as we have today, including those lovely friends of ours who are without power or water following the recent storms and are having to rely on the kindness of neighbours in order to be able to cook. 

Here's to all that is good about Christmas.... Bright blessings one and all!

Moving again? Good grief. No wonder we don't see much of your desk... You've barely time to unpack before you move again!
Christmas wishes of health and more happiness to you!

Happy Christmas, Morti. I trust today has been really special for you and your family - doesn't matter too much about the decorations - a sense of the love,joy and peace of the Christ-child is far more important.
Trusting your move goes well. 2 years ago we were due to move two days before Christmas...and ended up moving out on Jan 30th. Hope you get there sooner than we did!!!

Looks pretty festive to me love the tree. But it's who you are with that matters not where you are. Hope your day went well

Oh wow, Morti, I love that tree. Sorry to read that so many are without power. It's good you aren't affected.

Merry Christmas and happy WOYWW from #1.
