Brilliant Terra - and what amazing photos from your garden!

What's with this middle-of-the-night inspiration?? I'm impressed . . . last night I didn't get to SLEEP until 3.30am . . . p'raps I should have tried making up rhymes, lol!

23 Dec, 2011

 

Thanks Sheila ..
The rain is lashing down on my gardens today ..
... the elves have taken cover in the dry .. ;o)

With quite a number of my blogs, I've woken up in the night with the basic blog theme idea, and I've made some pencil notes, and then fallen asleep again !

So, yes ... try writing a blog in the early hours. !

Have a Happy Christmas. :o) x

23 Dec, 2011

23 Dec, 2011

 

Merry Xmas and Happy New Year loved the Christmas blog:)

23 Dec, 2011

 

Another Christmas cracker, TT! I'm just back from a candle lit carol service, so I was in great voice to have a bash at your clever lyrics! Could you hear me floating tunelessly, but enthusiastically over the waves?! Lol! Are the boys practicing in case Santa loses a couple of reindeer?!
Merry Christmas Terra, and a peaceful New Year. And a big thank you for your continued tireless work you do on this lovely website! :L)x

24 Dec, 2011

 

Well said Libet! Have a lovely Christmas Terra, and pat yourself on the back for all your good work - with thanks from me too.

24 Dec, 2011

 

Thanks Nana..
Merry Christmas, and I hope your fingers recover from all your lovely mosaic work ! :o) x

Hi Libet ...
Happy Christmas ..
How lovely to attend the floodlit carol service !

I heard some very tuneful singing floating across the miles from County Antrim ... well done you .... you're obviously in great voice this Christmas ! ;o)

At this time of year, Conker practises every day with his Christmas toys, tugging his Santa and sleigh enthusiastically around my lounge ...

... and Truffle pulls the elf-truck, but he goes a lot too fast, crashing it into all my furniture ... definite problems there with "elf-and-safety" ... Lol.

Thanks for your kind words :o) x

Hi Sheilabub ...
Merry Christmas to you and yours ...

Thanks for your encouragement ... very much appreciated.
Looking forward to seeing more pics. of your lovely garden next year... xxx

24 Dec, 2011

 

You've made me laugh again Terra . . . Is a FLOODLIT carol service like a CANDLE-LIT one Libet?! lol!

24 Dec, 2011

 

Lol... Sheila ..
Well-spotted ..
That was a Freudian slip .. LOL LOL

and I haven't even started yet on the Baileys Irish Cream Truffles ! :o)

24 Dec, 2011

 

Lol Terra! You were just checking we were reading it properly weren't you! Lol! I think you'd better step away from the alcofrolic truffles!;0)

24 Dec, 2011

 

Lol... I was dazzled by the bright lights ;o)

24 Dec, 2011

 

Another amazing blog from TT, master of blog composing!

Hope you're enjoying your Christmas with your lads! :-))

25 Dec, 2011

 

Thanks, Balcony...

I've published several blogs in the past few days ...
... inspired by the mild weather, I reckon ...
... the plants are flowering well in December. :o)

Happy Christmas. xxx

25 Dec, 2011

 

Thanks, TT! :-)) It's difficult to keep up with all the blogs of the people I'm following! I expect that's the same for most people though! You really ought to let us in on your secrets of blogging - I mean how do you change font sizes/types, how do you get musical notes to appear? I can copy/paste them, (have done on the odd occasion, too!), is that how you get them on here? I'm sure a lot of people would like to know!

26 Dec, 2011

 

Ditto, ditto, Balcony!

26 Dec, 2011

 

I knew more people would be interested! ;-))

26 Dec, 2011

 

To save explaining on the blog ...
I've sent private message ...
I hope that's okay for you ... :o)

26 Dec, 2011

 

I know I`m late Terra but still had to acknowledge your lovely blog, the boys look very industrious pulling their little trucks and both of them so clean and smart in their hats, lol.
Hope you had a good Christmas...

26 Dec, 2011

 

Thank you, Lincslass.

I hope you had a good Christmas, though probably quieter than usual....

Out on my muddy lawn, it was amazing that I was able to keep my dogs' Santa hats clean. Lol.

26 Dec, 2011

 

Hi TT like Lincs I'm a little late. Brilliant blog. Love the pictures of the boys, helping the elves get to Santa :)

Hope you had a great Christmas.

27 Dec, 2011

 

Hi Sam... Thanks ...
I hope you were singing along.. ;o)

Season's Greetings to you ...
Santa finally arrived, with help from my dogs and the elves ;o)

27 Dec, 2011

 

Of course didn't you hear the screeching from Sandwell lol.

Your boys are so very helpful, where would we be without them....presentless I'm guessing ;)

28 Dec, 2011

 

Well, after spending half an hour getting to the bottom of this post, I now realise where all the caterwauling came from across all of Europe!!!! LOL!
Brilliant blog TT, I too am a "middle of the night" person. Its always pretty quiet at the back of our house, but somehow, at night, it seems the brain really clicks in to the imagination (get some nightmares too lol, often get to you in the form of ditties!!)

13 Jan, 2012

 

Thank you, Tetrarch ...

Always good to have pencil at the ready, so that any ideas in my head can be put on paper before I forget them. Lol.

Sam ..
The elves are already preparing for Christmas 2012. ;o)

13 Jan, 2012

 

Lol Terra glad to hear they are being so organised. Theres a lot to do and only 12 months to do it in :)))

15 Jan, 2012

 

Hi Sam... be good for Santa ;o)

15 Jan, 2012

 

Would I be anything else lol :)))

16 Jan, 2012

 

Lol. ;o)))
