mmmm, choccies

Just look at what I was given today!
Everyone got one, it's the staff Christmas gift from management.

See the tag printed on the front? Isn't it nice when management says thank you?

I'm taking this opportunity, and this tag, to "personally" say thank you, thank you very much, to all my lovely readers and commenters. I've enjoyed interacting with all of you, I've enjoyed seeing new people pop in and clicking over to see what their blog is all about.
Thank you too, for all the encouraging remarks about my photography and my not-so-gifted- words.

I have a lovely four day break ahead of me now, on one of those days, I'll be attending a family Christmas lunch, which promises to be the lovely day it always is.
On the other three days, I'd love to say that I'll be sleeping late, sitting around with my feet up, reading books instead of blogs, but that won't be happening.
There's shopping to be done, gifts to be wrapped, mince pies to make, and I have newly transplanted seedlings to be babied for a few days. There's also roses cuttings that need to be moved into bigger pots. So the pots need to be washed and sterilised a bit, then dried in the sun, before I can move the roses. There's 5 left out of the original 30 cuttings. I thought there was 4, but one that looked dead decided to hang in there.

So Merry Christmas to all of you, have a wonderful break, eat lots, drink lots, but not too much, sleep lots, hug all your friends and family.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have choccies to eat......


  1. Thank you so much for visiting and following my blog this year - it's been wonderful to read your comments and stories you've shared. I hope you've enjoyed your visits as much as I've enjoyed visiting you!

    Happy travels for 2011 - enjoy those chocs!!

  2. Thanks for popping over to mine, too, River, I enjoy reading your gifted words ;)

  3. Thank YOU, chick, for your blog. It's always interesting and I've really enjoyed reading your posts. Looking forward to next year!

  4. Enjoy your break River - and your choccies! I will be interested to see how those rose cuttings make out. I haven't tried growing from cutting yet - but I'm keen to do so. There's a heirloom camellia hedge across the road that I've got my eye on...

  5. Love chocolates too. Happy Christmas!

  6. Red Nomad OZ; Your blog reminds me so often that I don't know nearly enough about my own country. When I retire and have much more time on my hands, I'll be doing bus trips all over my state, possibly even interstate.

    Jayne; I love your wicked sense of humor; see you next year.

    Toni; yours is a blog I found later than the others, but no less interesting. I've enjoyed reading.

    Life In A Pink Fibro; Want to know what attracted me to your blog? The title. When I was first married, way back in 1971, we lived in a pink fibro for a while.

    Joni Llanora; welcome. And Merry Christmas. I'll pop over tomorrow and see your blog.

  7. Have a lovely break.
    And isn't chocolate one of the food groups necessary for life? Enjoy.

  8. :-) You're welcome.

    Merry Christmas!


  9. Merry Christmas River, enjoy your break.... thanks for dropping by this year and here's to more stories next year. Health and Happiness...

  10. Don't tell Kath Chokett but I really love Cadbury's roses for a mindless snarff when reading.
    I just gave the BrickOutHouse a heart attack by sending him to buy one of those new Magnums. He bought two, said he nearly had to take out a bank loan and to eat them veeery slowly.

  11. Frogdancer; right back at you.

    Pearl; thank you.

    Cheese Whine and Whispers; Merry Christmas to you too.

    JahTeh; I love Cadbury Roses too. They're like the comfort foods I remember from childhood. I don't like Magnums though. I'm a Paddle Pop girl.
