Christmas Vibes and Jives

We have had a wonderful few days here at home- thanks all for the lovely comments left and well wishes too. I thought of you all just before heading to bed on Christmas Eve, presents laid out under the tree, the twinkle of the lights reflected in the window ~ standing there in the silence pregnant with suspense. I thought about the different times of day or night around the world and what you all might be doing ~ whatever it was and wherever you were l pinged out first-rate vibes across the horizon.

Christmas morning was magical, even with the usual haystack of wrapping, early tangerine peelings, etc.; the place was filled with warmth, love and the enticing aroma of roast turkey! It did my heart good to see the kids getting along so well and everyone chipping in to make it more special. I couldn’t wait to put in my new CD of ‘Boney M’ music gifted by G. This was music that l grew up with in the 1970’s – disco music wrapped up in bouncy reggae rhythm! You should have seen mouths drop open as l boogied around the room, singing out the lyrics- LOL.

Sam was over the moon with all of his presents but especially with the key that he found ~ the one that Santa dropped – a magical key! Last year Santa had left footprints in snow (talcum powder) that trailed from the chimney but this year he forgot his key ~ silly old boy.
Now Scotland is gearing up for the big one- Hogmanay. Unfortunately the weather outside is blowing a hooly, not a fantastic outlook especially for those who have purchased tickets for the bigger city events.
I’m away now to memorise all the verses to ‘Auld Lang Syne’ – l don’t want to be left speechless when the bells chime and everyone crosses arms to sing in the new year. If you too need to practice then you can sing along with the Karaoke HERE.
Photos below of some special Christmas moments. On Christmas Eve my mum came up with my brother, his wife and their wee baby Sorley.

I just bloghop here from...I'm not sure from where... but I stopped at once when I saw your location. I just LOVE Scotland and your wonderful, most fantastic highlands!

We've been in Scotland 2 times, last one in 2005 and we're defenitely going back there some time again.

First time we were driving around in the east coast and up in the highlands and second time on the west coast and the highlands.

We love the Scottish B&B's. Scottish people are very friendly (and polite!) as we've experienced it so far.

There is so much beauty to discover in Scotland and, I say it again, we just LOVE it!

Happy New Year and Hogmanay from little old Sweden :-)

And I can't believe it (well I can really), but I also got the BoneyM cd for Christmas and have been dancing around to it ever since!
Happy New Year, dear friend.

What a warm and wonderful atmosphere your Christmas photos have. I especially love the last one with your mum and the little ones. What a precious baby Sorley is!
Glad you had such a happy time together and made some beautiful memories.
I don't like the sound of that weather forecast. I hope it wasn't too bad and that you had a very Happy New Year.
May your year 2007 be filled with God's rich blessings throughout.
Love to you dear friend xox
