HomeTravel WritingSolely barely late.....HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND A PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!


Comfortable Christmas, belatedly.  I ready some photographs…. however life took over, and I used to be too busy to weblog. 

However it’s nonetheless the Christmas season until 6 January, so hopefully you are still within the temper to see some Christmassy cherubs…

and a few Christmas timber….

These little timber, driving on tree ornaments formed like landrovers (what’s going to they consider subsequent?) had been a part of the extremely inventive window shows at V.V. Rouleaux.  This charming ribbon and hat trimming store is tucked away in a again avenue in London’s Marylebone, and after I cycled previous the opposite day I noticed they’d decked the entire shopfront totally with ribbons for the festive season. 

I additionally noticed that Fortnum and Mason’s has turned the entire store into an  

introduction calendar. It occurs to have 24 handy home windows (there’s one other row which isn’t seen within the image). I’ve an concept that they could do that yearly however normally I am too targeted on their  well-known Christmas window shows to note. This yr the Christmas home windows had been uncharacteristically uninteresting, truly…

… so here’s a Fortnum’s window from instances previous. All of the home windows on the bottom flooring normally share a standard theme,  and this window, from 2015,  was the Royal Coat of Arms, with the Lion and the Unicorn.  I hope they will be again on kind subsequent yr! 

And listed here are a few of our Christmas lights, which I assumed appeared quite cosy, along with our devoted fuel fires which date from the early Nineteen Fifties and had been in the home once we arrived.  I all the time cherished the look of those fires; they’ve some form of end that glistens with “interference colors”  and are a pleasant quaint form. Their model identify is “Gasoline Miser”  as a result of though they’re so highly effective that you would be able to really feel as in case you are in Borneo as an alternative of London, they’re additionally adjustable right down to a barely seen flame that retains the chilliness off the room for lengthy intervals and prices hardly something. Ultimate for outdated locations with giant excessive rooms and quite dangerous insulation, and everybody likes to assemble spherical them too. They do not “go” with the unique Victorian mantelpieces however you’ll be able to’t have every thing!

Get pleasure from the remainder of the Christmas Season, and Comfortable 2020!
