I have escaped the dust and renovations and flown to Lapland.
Well not quite Lapland but it's certainly close.
I'm at my sister's for the holiday.
To say that my sister adores Christmas is an understatement.
In fact, I think she may well be Mrs Claus!
Both she and her husband pull out all of the stops out to ensure that everyone has a special time with all the magic of Christmas.
Here's her tree.
I'd like to just take this moment to thank you all for your friendship over the last year.
Your visits have meant so much to me and I hope we'll continue to natter in 2014.
Merry Christmas Everyone
HO HO HO....
