Snow on bamboo may be beautiful, but in all this cold weather I keep hearing stories of people with ruined holiday plans, who won’t manage to meet up with loved ones, who have spent days returning from travels including sleeping on airport terminal floors. Friends who awaken to collapsed ceilings in a child’s room due to burst pipes, who are running out of LPG for heating and cooking, who have broken boilers or even broken limbs.
So, I hope you stay safe…
..with somewhere warm and comfortable to sit and chat with people you love, perhaps with a glass of something lovely or a tasty seasonal treat.
I hope there is feasting and merriment at a table groaning with wonderful food. That’s certainly my plan!
Thank you to everyone who has visited this blog, who has left comments, who has encouraged me and welcomed me into the blogoshpere. I look forward “seeing” you all again after the holidays, but right now I am off to ice my Christmas cake, something I am spectacularly bad at but rather enjoy.
And although my Magnolia is currently covered in snow, the days are already starting to get longer…
…and that same tree is covered in the promise of the Spring to come.
