Quilt, eggses and Christmas decorations.

Extra special Midwinter Beautiful Things to Sgt Dub in Afghanistan, and to Kimono Hime in case she is homesick for England; and to everyone who is far away from the ones they love.

1. Waking up under my new blue cotton quilt from India. It's a present from Katie. She has a matching one in red in her room. She carried them both for nearly her whole holiday.

2. Scrambled eggs on crispy toast. They are bright yellow because they come from freerange chickens; and they are the first thing we've cooked in the new flat.

3. Opening a box and finding the Christmas decorations.


  1. What a wonderful Christmas post Clare! Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!

  2. I love your blog, it is so inspirational. I wish you a Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2007!

  3. Thank you Clare! I found a place here that sells Christmas crackers and the kids loved popping them throughout the day. Our pudding was a bit non-traditional (I can't eat wheat), but it was a very fudgy and fruity cake. And instead of snow we had rain, so I felt... well, happy!

    All Happies of the Season to you, and may 2007 be full of Beautiful Things in abundance. Thank you for sharing your moments with us, and reminding us all of the simple pleasures in life. :-)
