    Good morning and a 5.4 today. That's after eating a warm mince pie with cream at choir last night and chest and nuts at midnight whilst playing Santa catch-up wrapping presents for today's delivery.

    So a day of Santa, hospital visits to MIL and tonight's gig.

    Hope your cellotape, string, wrapping paper and scissors treat you kindly.

    Enjoy your Friday.

    5.7 this morning for me.
    Lovely tree @SaskiaKC I hope it has helped lift your spirits. What does the KC have to say about it?
    Have a great last day at work all those who are finishing today for Christmas.
    @Muddy Cyclist that’s a great fbg after a mince pie - well deserved. Hope your day goes well and the gig is joyful.

    Good morning all. Fbg shown on the meter (at 1 point) as 5.3 but best not to rely on that as reality. @Debandez re the red dress - think about my username and the implications of that much red - not an option @trick60 hope the last day treats you well and the break is all you could wish for. @Muddy Cyclist hectic, stressful life at the moment interspersed with some sublime moments from what I can gather. @SaskiaKC link primarily for you and technically for evening but gave me a lovely, peaceful start to the day - hope it works for others. Part of the O antiphons

    Morning All. 7.0 at 0700. But it is eye injection day and I am always rightly or wrongly stressed. Its at lunchtime so will do a bit of last minute wrapping before then.
    The weather here in the last 24 hours has been truly awful so hope you are all ok where you are. After two Christmas days without power I am just hoping ours stays connected. Very upsetting events going on in Oz. My boys will both be home by the end of today so that will gladden my heart.
    Have a great Friday everyone. Stay well, stay safe.

    I've cheated MC bought the drawstring bags with ribbon...Sellotape & me are not suited too much hassle...I can never find the end & too many expletives uttered this time of the year is not good...so there a confession.
