Happy Christmas One & All. Ho Ho Ho!!

To all my dear blogging friends out there in blogging land, I wish you all a very"Happy Christmas" filled with love, peace and joy. 

 Carols to sing, food to eat, drink to be drunk, and making sure we remember the true spirit of Christmas.  I shall raise a glass to you all on Saturday, for you have almost become like family to me. 

I don't know if you have seen anything about England on your news but, believe me, it has almost been at a standstill for the past few days.  There was a huge article on the front page of the newspaper, with a banner headline stating "NOT OUR FINEST HOUR!", as planes were grounded in all the airports, thousands of Christmas holidays ruined, roads ungritted, drivers stranded for hours, and all because it snowed! 

You will probably have gathered that we do like to discuss the weather in this country.  Seriously, though, it really has got beyond a joke.

If my prayers are answered, early tomorrow morning our little family will be driving to the East of the United Kingdom in a bid to catch the Eurotunnel train to Calais and from there we shall be driving on down to Paris, so please keep everything crossed for us,  my little bloggies!

We are due back again on the 29th December but, fear not, my little laptop is going to be sneaked in with the luggage!

My warmest wishes to you all.

I'll have to admit that I really did not know how severe it was until you mentioned it. I try not to look at the news as they only want to print disturbing stuff and what a way to end your day. I will be praying for you safe journey as you travel to be with your daughter. Keep us updated along the way so we won't worry too much about you. OK?

Hello my sweet friend ~ I so very much enjoy your blog posts! I love your line above... "drink to be drunk".... That is TOO FUNNY!! (I did that last weekend!! Hahaa!) ~ I appreciate that you love your followers so much and plan to remember us on Christmas Day. ~ I will be praying that you make it safely to France. I will be worried about you, so please make sure to let us know when you make it there! ~ May your Christmas be all that you have dreamed about and may you be surrounded by your family as you celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

~ Blessings & prayers, Becky

We don't deal well with snow here although we get a LOT of it - and weather has been known to consume our local channels. They will plow out to get the shoppers to the stores but ignore the schools, gov't and the travelers.

I wish you a safe trip and a very, very Merry Christmas.

Hugs and love!

Hi Odie. I totally agree with you, about the media only wanting to tell us about all the bad stuff, which is not good. The car is all packed, so we will set off at around 5 a.m. (!) tomorrow morning and just pray that we will make it. I will keep you informed!

Thisisme said...

Becky - thank you for your comments dear friend. Have a blessed Christmas with your family and I will let you know if we make it!

Thisisme said...

Hi SkippyMom. Sorry to hear that you don't deal too well with the snow over there either. In the new year, I am going to have a real good look at a map of America, so that I can see just where my blogging friends live! Hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas.

First of all, you tend to get back that which you give to others and you are one of the sweetest, kindest and most generous bloggers anywhere. We are family, Thisisme. Secondly, my prayers are with you in your travels. I hope you stay in touch with us and have a wonderful Christmas!

This...I'll be thinking of you and hope your travels are safe. This has been one crazy winter and it just officially started yesterday!! Yikes! Hugs!

Thisisme said...

Shady - those sure were lovely comments, and I do appreciate them! Thank you for your prayers, and I do hope that you have a wonderful Christmas.

Thisisme said...

Bouncin'Barb - yes, winter only 'officially' started yesterday. Still, at least the shortest day has been and gone. In this part of England, we hardly ever get snow, but it has surpassed itself this year! It is very seasonal and does look lovely, but I just wish it had waited for a few more days!! Hugs right back at you.
