Christmas Eve in Spaldrick Cottage

I am stealing a few minutes to update my blog on Christmas Eve. I have been quite busy today, but it has been a peaceful day and I have got everything done now for the big day tomorrow. All my parcels are wrapped and under the tree.

The house is clean and tidy and now all I can think of is Clement C Moore, and his poem Twas the Night Before Christmas.

- - When all through the house
not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
in the hope that St Nicholas soon would be there.
And mama in her kerchief and I in my cap
Had settled ourselves for a long winters nap.

I love everything about Christmas, especially this poem, and this is to be my entry in my Christmas Journal for today. All is collected together - but not put together a s I am so BEHIND with my journal. I hope to be able to complete the pages during the Christmas break.
