Oh have a fantastic time on whatever you'll be doing.. walking, reading, drinking, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera...

Say, one thing, how long did it take for you to compile this post? teehee!

Most egg-cellent!

What a wonderful post, Lettuce - I hope you and the family have a fab Christmas.
And yes, I'd reckon chances of snow in Jersey are slim. I remember snow once in Guernsey - oh my, what an uproar it caused! ;-)

Avid Reader said...

What an adorable post! You are a creative little lettuce! Thanks for making me smile this morning.

PG said...

Jersey, how lovely! Have a lovely Christmas, especially an IT-less one! :)

Sally said...

What a sign off Lettuce . . . :))

Have a great time.

Trac said...

Oh Lettuce!

That was the best post ever!!!
(Even I wouldn't mind a bit of snow after that) :O)

Yeah, I totally agree with the Eastenders thing.

I've just been checking out Christmas TV and besides Dr Who (obviously) and a new Wallace and Gromit (obviously :O) ) there seems very little else to look forward to.

Wow, if a greeting card were War and Peace...I particularly like that snow Dalek. Happy New can only get better, or so we will hope...

a most wondrous holiday - and may it be filled with plenty of reading, snapping, crafting, sipping,wandering, and merrymaking

and friends....

Barbara said...

Well, aren't you clever? This totally reminded me of the little primers I had when I was learning to read. I hope you have a wonderful vacation even if there is no snow!

Betty said...

Hah bumhug! Hope you managed to avoid the dreaded Eastenders.
I think the only TV we watched was Wallace & Gromit, which was fab, fab, fab! (and I recorded Dr Who)
We ate too much, drank a little & played silly games. All very nice.
And now everybody's gone home. Wonderful :-)
