Jul Aften Christmas Eve

24th December

God Jul to everyone. Today is Christmas in Norway. As us tradition mamma has been to the church years and place a wreath for lived ones not with us this year. For us that is particularly poignant this year too as I fear reading and listening to the news it will be for many also. 

Life does not stop however much we sometimes want it to and we try hard to embrace the around us. I think we are managing fine. 

Today the Christmas cake was iced, last minute dash to the shops, which were remarkably quiet, a quick coffee with a friend and then... Five o'clock bell rings and Christmas proper can commence. 

We are well, opened our Norwegian presents, spoke with family abroad. Exchanged out family tradition of giving and receiving of two  pound presents to much hilarity. And food left out for FatherChristmas  and his reindeer. 

Wishing you all a wonderful festive season and sending you all my love. Will pop back to blog land I a few days time. In the meantime. GOD JUL


I will always read all comments and will try to reply but it may take me a couple of days, do please pop back and lets get a conversation going...
