Break for Christmas

I believe I will now make a break again. I’m a bit annoyed with my network connection, but there are also some other priorities the next couple of days. Before receiving family on Christmas Eve and visiting family on Christmas Day, I have still some final shopping to do (illustrated by the below pictures), some preparation of my flat, some…… , actually quite a lot.
I will try to be back with a post or two before the end of the year, but I take the opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas (God Jul, Hyvää Joulua, Joyeux Noël, Feliz Navidad, Frohe Weihnachten, 圣诞快乐, Buon Natale…)!!!

Also on behalf of Paloma who prepared the Christmas card!

Hi Peter,
Have a good break and "Merry Christmas and a Happy NewYear" to you too!!
The same in DUTCH:
"Goede kerstdagen en een gelukkig Nieuwjaar",

I'll miss you the coming time on blog, but I might not blog as much as usual too, next week I might take off a few days...

I showed today a slideshow with photo's and music from, "the left behind and lost things" on the streets, right the opposite of rich Christmas, everybody seemed to have money enough these days... Just look and see if you like it, Bye see you and enjoy yourself:)

BTW thanks for visiting my blog, I always read all comments! :)

Have a good time with your family, Peter, and we will be in touch again when all the festivities are over and done with for another year!
Happy Christmas and may 2008 be very kind to you and to those you love!

Mélisse said...

Nedeleg Laouen Peter (c'est du breton ;-)) ! Ma connection est revenue, la tienne te donne quelques soucis, le net est inconstant ces temps-ci ! Je te souhaite de très belles fêtes, mais pour la bonne année je reviendrai !

GMG said...

Great to see the last posts!
Sorry for having taken so much time to come back here, but I will not tell you about my last weeks… The problem is that the coming ones don’t seem much nicer, at least up to January 14th, 2008…
But let’s forget all that; I wish you a merry Christmas and I’ll try to come back here to see the wonderful pictures and divert from less interesting tasks!
Have a great time
Gil

Sorry to have missed Lyliane's birthday... :((

Thanks! I finished yesterday!

Cergie said...

Adorable Paloma, elle est tout à fait prête à ouvrir un blog à présent. Je suis sûre qu'elle saura tout à fait passer plein de messages sans blablater (comme disit Napoléon : un bon croquis vaut mieux qu'une longue explication")

Je peux juger que tu es totalemnt coupé du net
1) Parce que tu as des obligations
2) Parce que tu n'as pas de connection

Pauvre Peter !!!!

Finalement, c'est lundi que je mets mon dernier message de l'année. J'ai fait tout ce que je devais faire hier, je suis contente.
Gros bisou et passe de bonne fêtes.
See you next year...

Mona said...

Peter, Happy Holidays to you and your family and hope you have a wonderful Christmas, full of Joy and Good wishes!

Also, A Happy New Year to you !

SusuPetal said...

Have a Merry Christmas, Peter, enjoy good food and drink, the company of people, the lazy moments of just being and the all that makes your Christmas a lovely time.

Sonia said...

Lovely card! Well done, Paloma!

I wish to you and your family a HAPPY CHRISTMAS!

April said...
