As I write this I'm setting the table and listening to our Christmas songs playlist. The Christmas present to myself after days of dealing with the flu is not ironing the tablecloth. wink No one will notice when it gets darker and no one in our home really cares. Everything that needs to be ready for Christmas Eve dinner is ready. We're having smoked lamb, which is an Icelandic tradition, and I must add that the children are more excited about the smoked lamb than the presents. I'm not kidding; they love it.

Dear blog friends and followers, I hope you have wonderful holidays ahead of you. May peace and happiness fill your days. Christmas greetings from Antwerp.

  5. You have excellent taste! I have the same ribbon (in reverse), the same glass plate (under the bowl- my bowls are a little different) and the same placemats - all which I used yesterday too! hahaha
    Thank you for your kind & lovely words when you stop my blog... I really do appreciate them...
    We had a lovely day full (FULL) of food and I am now officially in recuperation mode.
    Trust you're enjoying the festivities of the Christmas season with your family and friend.

    Ég vona að þú hafir átt ánægjuleg jól og að þú sért laus við flensuna og allir séu frískir. Takk fyrir skemmtilega tölvusamskipti á árinu.
