Have returned from the Theatre and a fabulous performance of Handel's Messiah played by an 18c style orchestra and choir...just wonderful! The music easily brings tears to my eyes as I find The Messiah a very powerfully emotive piece of music and one that my mother and I went to hear every Christmas together.. so of course it is doubly loaded for me..
I managed to supress the hacking cough armed with honey and lemon cough pastilles and boy... was it good to get out of the house and walk in the fresh air to the Theatre and back... I had forgotten how invigorating a good brisk walk can feel!
The purpose of this evening's blog is of course to announce the Cowboys & Custard Christmas Giveaway No:2 .. and this time Pickles obliged and managed to half heartedly perform his draw master task...
With a little help from me I picked out the winning slip of paper... so CONGRATULATIONS to Nicky at Vintage Magpie for being the winner of this giveaway.. I hope your mantle is dusted and ready to receive this award!
I don't know who enjoys these little ceremonies more.. you or me.. I just love sharing and hearing from you all ... and those Christmas feasts of yours have got me salivating so I am off for a quick snack and then bed.... all this excitement has left me exhausted..
See you soon!
