It happens every year, just after Thanksgiving but December catches me off guard every time!
Today is my mother-in-law's birthday and I can't be with her today but I was there in October for my father-in-law's birthday, so I will share a few photos from that day.
(Being in England now seems like a happy dream, much like the little boy pulling the scarf from his pocket at the end of "The Snowman".)
And may I just say, I got some UNWAXED LEMONS FROM SPAIN to squeeze over the salmon and I am sorry, but that deserves all capitals, it does, they were wonderful! Fond memories of lemons, you are thinking, but hey, they were delicious and unlike anything I have had before. (Not forgetting the wonderful bread, champagne and the smoked salmon from Scotland!)
Please notice the birthday cake with FOUR CANDLES. There is a reason for that number and it has to do with the TWO RONNIES. I have had this video on here before but I must share it again with you.
You will laugh at me I know but as I walked past Joan and with the sun shining through the window, I was struck by her pretty hair and her thin gold necklace on the back of her neck. Pure elegance, I tell you! Happy Birthday, dear Joan, enjoy your day and hopefully enjoy some birthday wishes sent your way today!
Okay then, it is December but guess what...we still have some lovely color on our trees. It seems that some of the red colors are the last ones hanging on. I don't have any great photos of this to show you, but I promise you, they are lovely. Happy December!
