It's Christmas Eve and Bill signs off for a few days

Like many people, I expect, I have a pretty full schedule of activities for the next few days, not the least of which will be cooking up and serving turkey, etc., tomorrow. Last evening I baked a virginia ham (a particular favourite which I do every year), as well as made various home-made 'sweet meats' and chocolates ('mendiants' for Christmas). My guests will be arriving this afternoon, and a couple more for lunch tomorrow, so I'll be quite busy very shortly; luckily we are out for lunch on Boxing Day, as it's our mother's birthday.

So from the brief, calm interlude which I'm currently enjoying, I take this opportunity to wish everyone, wherever they are, a Peaceful and Joyous Christmas and a Very Happy New Year. A scene from early this morning 'chez moi' is below:

8.15 am 'chez Bill' this morning.
