the day after

{twas the night before Christmas}
Well hello there, how was your holiday? I hope it was full of mistletoe kisses and sugarplum dreams. Mine was as magical as magic can be and I'm over the moon, full to the brim with beef bourguignon, oysters, fois gras, and cheese (and lets not forget Les Treize Desserts de Noël... no no no, we wouldn't want to forget those), and happily exhausted from too many rounds of cards. But it's not over. We'll be spending St. Stephen's Day (Boxing Day to you English lot and the day after Christmas for my American friends) with Mr & Mrs London, so I've popped in quickly to say hello, all is wonderfully well in Le Petit Village and I haven't been abducted by any red-nosed reindeer. 

À bientôt mes amis!

  9. Ahh - I miss boxing day! I lived in England for 3 years so, since there's no such thing here (and my personal man creature had to work) I'm having it anyway. Happiest of holidays to you!

  10. Sounds like you had a fabulous Christmas; hope you enjoy Boxing Day with the London's. We had a great Christmas, enjoyed the chaos that comes with 4 young grandkids, two dogs and 6 adults. Loved every minute of it.
