I done promised LaLa that this post would be a touch more UP TEMPO and FUN! (Exclamation mark: author's own).
Well for kick-off let's have the angel on top of everyone's tree, Nancy Banks-Smith on some Christmas food telly. The woman has lost none of her magic. Wit, vim and good typing whirl out from under her ever-ready fingertips:
"Their antlers were like a leafless forest against the great, golden skies."
"Give Rob Brydon a second helping of gruel, poor mite, before the rickets set in."
Then we'll have a dash of Geoff with some mildly perilous festive music, along the theme of high driving. The result being a Wham, one expects. (ker-chuckle).
Then we'll have EVEN MORE music suggestions from the brilliant Delrico Bandito.
Then take three ounces of Doris and her tips on festive decorations for historic homes. Along with possibly a fire blanket, to taste.
Not enough? What is it you're wanting? A side dish of choirs or something? Or Something?
