  1. Glad to have you back Alison. I know what you mean, I love December too, to me it is the most magical month of the year, and I want to enjoy all 31 days of it to the full.
    Take Care

  2. I am so glad to have you back.. There IS magic to December, and it is WAY too short… I just don't want to get to that glaring light that is January 2, knowing the holidays are over and the magic is gone…

  3. I love walking across the fields everyday, wellies are my favourite footwear at the moment,

    glad you had a lovely break, it sounded lovely.

  4. …welcome back, sounds/ looks like a lovely time was had by all – so Mark's romance has failed huh? Are you not-so-secretly pleased? I hope you have a wonderful Christmas, you deserve it and hey, there's nothing quite like a gathering with the girlies is there! x

  5. Someday, you will compile these thoughts and others into a book, and I will buy the book, because you are able to convey on paper what others cannot. May you have many, many more posts rich with words, both ethereal and earthy.

  6. Your time in the mud sounds fabulous.
    What are copper gladrags? Could you please write a 'Guide To Snazzy Brit Speak'? I need a glossary, at least.
    Mark? Oh, dear, I want to hear about that in depth, too. Is that gorey of me? I want to see him wallowing in the muck of his bad choices. But perhaps that's nasty of me and not very Christmas-like.
    I look forward to your every post. Thanks for having this nice, soft corner of the world for us to wrap ourselves up in. It's warm and always oh-so-welcome.

  7. Happy trails! Get thee back to the wilds soon. It obviously does you a World of good.
    P.S. Can you get Net access in Paradise on Staffordshire? We wouldn't want you to disappear for good!

  8. I knew it was just a matter of time. "Hey Mark! *PBBFFTT!*"
    Yeah, that was a good ol' American razberry just for him!
    Sounds like you had a lovely time and you know we want to hear more about "The Man"! C'mon, dish!!

  9. That sounds like that country song, "Why have you left the one you left me for?" Lovely post… and to the man who wants short posts??? good grief… don't read the long ones, goofus! I love your lovely long posts….

  10. I just watched the Victoria Wood video of "Let's Do It". Hilarious! Very interesting suggestions for lovemaking. LOL! Thanks for that bit of fun.

  11. Alison,
    I have been reading your blog for a few weeks now. My mama originally sent me the link to it, explaining what a delightful new blog she had found and one she was certain I would adore. Oh, how our mothers are always right!
    Your writing inspires me to find joy in the mundane and to take new pleasure in my small but cozy home.
    Thank you for reminding me of the blissful wonders of December.

  12. Oh I am so glad you had a good time away, lovely to have you back!
    I would hate you to start using six sentances or less, we would miss out on feeling hungry and having to go make soup and buy books from amazon!

  13. Never listen to men who want you to give up this wonderful blog something that your soul so passionately shares the rest of us wordy wonders.
    It sounds like your December is so delightful! I hope it continues so lovely.

  14. Sounds like you had a dreamy time. Once we determine what pleases us, we can begin re-shaping our lives to include more of it. Blessings… Polly

  15. Dearest Alison,
    You are simply adorable and deserve every moment of "December Magic" that your heart can hold.Wish you only the very best this Christmas for you and little Finn.

  16. It's been far too long since I've popped in Alison….and, boy, did I miss reading your tales! I laugh out loud at your wonderful stories. You're a gifted writer to say the very least!
    hugs to you,
