Happy. Holly. Daze.

I found a little note on the tree this morning.
The second sentence just kills me. It's so nice to know exactly what role you play in your child's life. (In case you can't read it, it says, "You are a wonderful, amazing help around the house.")
My family and I send you holi(wood)day wishes this morning, wherever in the big wide world you happen to be.

Today we're having a Dickensian feast with friends: roast goose, stuffing, parsnips, mushy peas and sticky toffee pudding (which I actually need to run downstairs and check on). Photos to come.

Count every blessing as a gift and every friend as a treasure -- we're going to have a wonderful 2012, I just know it!

Lisa, Merry Christmas! I count your friendship as one of the gifts of blogging and I continue to be astonished at your creative, witty, and smart writing. Your are truly a kindred spirit and I am delighted to know someone as obsessed with Bloomsbury as I am. I hope you have a wonderful day with your family!

Oh what a darling note. Perhaps it will inspire your next needlework work of art. Luca will make a good mate.
You are teaching him well, what a gift.

Happy Christmas Lisa

I believe Luca's note is one of the best Christmas presents of all. No doubt you shall frame it.

Your Christmas feast sounds delicious.
I love goose.

I join you in predicting 2012 to be the greatest year. Thank you for your blog and frienship.
