Merry Christmas!

Yesterday we visited our older daughter and her family for Christmas Eve. We had a lovely meal and took a sunset walk up onto the hillside where an lluminated panorama of London spread below us. We gazed down at the mixture of old and new, from old fashioned Mary Poppins style roofscapes to huge modern buildings.

Afterwards we walked down the little old streets back to their house, admiring the Christmas trees and wreaths. When we got back home we found the cats had also been enjoying Christmas!

A Happy Christmas to you all!

  5. Hello Jenny, There's no doubt that London has more than its share of magic. On my next visit I'll be sure to step back and appreciate the special appearance of London by night.

    Happy Holidays!

  6. What a lovely way to spend Christmas Eve. It looks like very few of us will be getting a white Christmas this year (only fog here in Tennessee). Have a wonderful day, Jenny!

  9. A walk sounds like a perfect antidote for the excesses of Christmas. We are hosting tomorrow and I think we have enough food for the whole street! Mind you we have two young grandchildren and it never ceases to amaze me how much they can eat!

  12. Oh, that cat...so funny! How pretty London looks, at night and looking from the hill. Beautiful photos Jenny, and wishing you a very Happy Christmas.

  13. Great photos. I like all the cranes with their red warning lights. I like all the stained glass on the front door. Is that your front door? And I see the cat has found a brand new use for the Christmas bag!

  15. Your Christmas sounds very nice, too. Is the duck-egg blue front door yours? I love it!
    The cat is so much like our own Moritz, who was our family cat during my childhood and teenage years. He loved playing with the wrapping paper and ribbons, and he was black like your cat, but had amber eyes.

  16. Oh Jenny, everything in this post makes me smile. I love the photo of you walking down the street and seeing the trees in the windows; the chimney pots (It DOES look like Mary Poppins, which I can't wait to see!) and that sweet cat! And I love 158's door!

    I'm late to the holiday party here -- I've been off the grid a few days. But I have a feeling your Christmas (and Boxing Day) were very happy. Here's hoping the new year is, too!

  23. Lovely night photos. And your cat could be the sibling to ours.

    Happy New Year's to you and your family!

  24. Your home looks very nice with decoration and Christmas tree, Jenny.
    I love your night photos of London, wonderful. Funny that your cat found so unusual spot to hide there.
    Happy new year, dear! I wish happiness with your family, good health!

  26. I'm a bit late arriving here, so I'll say happy new year! Always like to see a bit of London! Your star photo reminded me how we hung a star up near a spotlight (not too near!) and then realized it cast a shadow on the wall. It struck us how one could create more elaborate "shadow decorations".
