It’s As Far Away As It Ever Was

27 Dec

That’s Christmas over with for another year.  How was yours?  I don’t really remember mine.  I have some photos so I’ll upload those at the end of this post and we can all find out together.

I have almost caught up with your posts that I get by email.  I may not have commented but I clicked ‘Like’ to let you know I read them (and because I liked them).  Tomorrow’s job is to catch up with the comments you have left here over the last few days.

Thanks for sticking with me when I’m grumpy, snotty and not quite all there.

Here are some pictures, as promised.  They were taken with my camera.  Once the Hub is well enough, he’ll upload the ones taken with his camera and I’ll share some of those.

    Thanks for sharing these pictures Tilly 😀 How are you feeling today? Getting the energy back?

      Face is aching today; probably from all the gunk, despite my best efforts to clear it. But a bit better than yesterday, and a lot better than Christmas Day.

      Thanks for asking 🙂

        Patience is the only solution here… been there, had to do that 😉
        I do hope you will feel like your old vibrant self again soon! A healthy start into the new year.

    Glad you had a good holiday despite your illness. Merry Christmas.

    I love the pictures, your boys are adorable. The tree is a perfect Christmas tree full of ornaments. I’m glad that you are on the mend. You’ll hopefully be right as rain by New Year’s.

      Fingers crossed – Spud has exams on January 5th and he hasn’t been able to revise at all.

    It looked a lovely Christmas, Tilly. Some flamboyant presents there….and that was Mount Everest under the tree!

    Have a wonderful break, now you are emerging from that horrid cold.


    • Tilly Bud December 27, 2011 at 15:50 #

      Thanks Kate. We tend to have a lot of fun on Christmas morning, when we’re not arguing!

    what a whale of a time you had..its nice to see hub in his natural state and Linda fast asleep..

    Are you feeling better now my dear


    • Tilly Bud December 28, 2011 at 12:01 #

      Starting to, thank you. But it was nothing compared to what you and Neville have just been through.

    Thanks for sharing your Christmas with us…cheers!


  7. nrhatch December 27, 2011 at 16:27 #

    What a ponderous pile of presents! 😆


  8. colonialist December 27, 2011 at 17:10 #

    Oh how dreadful to be thus afflicted at such a time!
    Anyway, the best of it certainly seems to have been made. That pile of pressies is almost as bad as our lot!


  9. Grannymar December 27, 2011 at 17:22 #

    Hurray! You are beginning to feel better, and also the whole spend/gluttonfest is over for another year.


  10. gigihawaii December 27, 2011 at 17:43 #

    Love seeing all those presents under your tree and the happy faces, too. What a great Christmas! Hope you are feeling better now. Blessings!

    Looks like a fabulous Christmas for the family. May I come to Christmas at your house next year?

    Glad you’re on the mend. Good health to you and your family for the New Year!


    • Tilly Bud December 28, 2011 at 12:07 #

      Of course! Everybody is welcome. Failing that, make sure you visit when you visit the UK 🙂


  12. Pseu December 27, 2011 at 19:29 #

    So glad you’re on the mend 🙂

    Hi Tilly. You always seem to be in photos with differnt men. Either your husband is a quick change artist or you have more than one. I was noticing the moustasche in particular.

    Cheers and I hope you feel better. Dianne

    Tilly I hope you are all feeling better soon. Lousy timing for the flu bugs. How did you do that slide show – it looks an amazing way to display photos.


    • Tilly Bud December 28, 2011 at 12:09 #

      It’s really easy: upload the photos and WordPress does the rest.


  15. granny1947 December 28, 2011 at 10:27 #

    I missed the post that told us you were sick.
    You are as silly as Mex.
    Christmas is NOT the time to get a cold.
    Bad,bad timing.
    glad you are on the mend.


    • Tilly Bud December 28, 2011 at 12:10 #

      Dreadful timing, I’ll admit; especially when it was three of us.

      Hope Mex is feeling better.

    Aww lovely photos! Well time flies so fast! Christmas has been a blur for me too… and I guess that the new year will be too


    • Tilly Bud December 28, 2011 at 14:20 #

      Make the most of it; before you know it, you’re middle-aged, and all Christmases are a blur 🙂


  17. eof737 December 29, 2011 at 10:33 #

    Lovely pictures and you do look beat by a cold… Feel better.


  18. Perfecting Motherhood December 30, 2011 at 07:13 #

    Looks like you had a great Christmas. Good luck putting all your Christmas decorations away!


  19. Lorna's Voice December 31, 2011 at 15:46 #

    I’m playing catch-up, too (and with a monster head cold). So I feel your pain… 😦

    Christmas hoopla just ended yesterday and started on Christmas Eve, Oy Vey!


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
