Merry Christmas one and all! In celebration I bring you one of the most delightful and gorgeous videos I have ever come across. Darcy and I saw it the other night on a Christmas TOTP2 programme, and have now ended up buying the album (A Christmas Cornucopia). For those of you of different faiths - or none at all - just sit back and admire the pretty (and develop a crush on Annie Lennox...). ♥



(And in case the embedding decides to vanish again: God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen by Annie Lennox.)

Now to the Lord sing praises,
All you within this place,
And with true love and brotherhood
Each other now embrace;
This holy tide of Christmas
All other doth deface.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

Am going to be run off my feet from now on, so this will be my official Christmas post. Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] the_royal_anna whose parcel(!) arrived this morning, and to [livejournal.com profile] candleanfeather for the penguin (squee!).

So, I shall wish you a

Merry Christmas


(or a Merry 'what-ever-you-celebrate' - the merriness is what's important!)
And in order to make your Christmasses as merry as can be, here is Wilf, dancing, since Wilf with his reindeer antlers is the most wonderful thing ever:


But since Doctor Who (and Murray Gold) are awesome, I thought I'd upload the music for this little clip too. Only 44 seconds. Hope you enjoy!

Wilf's Wiggle

(That really is what it's called!)

First of all thank you lots and lots to [livejournal.com profile] gamiila for the card! What a lovely surprise. :)

It came yesterday, actually, but I wasn't quite with it... See *everyone* has caught a cold (except me, of course), and night before last the Cherub woke up at around 2 am and would not go back to sleep. I ended up taking her downstairs and putting on Blues Clues (we have a very, very, very long tape that I recorded for Miss M once upon a time). I attempted to nap on the big sofa whilst she watched/coughed/clambered around/snuggled down in twenty different places/cried because her ear hurt.

She didn't fall asleep until 6!

I spent the whole morning asleep, and the rest of the day was v. v. lazy! (Sometimes I really like holidays.)

What else has happened? Watched 'Hamlet', which was engrossing and brilliant, even with 3 kids running around. Also it's been *forever* since I watched it last - I know I've seen both the Mel Gibson version, and the Kenneth Brannagh one, but it's that long ago that it was like watching it for the first time. Also somehow never realised just how slashy it is - am considering adding 'Hamlet/Horatio' to my interests...

Also watched QI (fun, but not a patch on Buzzcocks), the DT part of Catherine Tate's Christmas Special (and there was much flailing), and am slowly catching up on all the radio programmes. Loved DT and CT taking over Jonathan Ross's show - esp the 'New Business' game. Explained it to the rest of the family, and Darcy did his patented 'You are SUCH a sad fangirl/This is just SILLY, why are you sharing?' - and then two minutes later came back, saying that he had a new business... Ha! (It's here if you want to listen. 3 hours long, and they've got Bernard Cribbins & Peter Davidson as guests!) Desert Island Disks with DT was just lovely, and - incredibly - he was an even geekier child than I thought! Am off to listen to Who on Who (DT interviews RTD) once I've finished this post. :)

What else? Oh, I bought myself (and the girls) the most indulgent present - the first three series of Doctor Who! I spotted them on sale on Amazon more than a month ago and couldn't *not* buy them! I OWN DW ON DVD! *dances* And it's so SHINY!

Got some other shiny presents too - asked my mum to get me Hamlet, but since that won't get here until January, she decided to get me a couple of other things, so there'd be *something* under the tree. So I ended up with 'The Dragonlover's Guide to Pern' (I might have introduced her to the series when I first discovered it, age 13 or so, and she fell totally in love!) and my own copy of Cats in the Belfry by Doreen Tovey, quite possibly the funniest book ever written. I've been reading the first few chapters aloud to the girls, something that is very tricky when you double over with laughter every other sentence. Sometimes I love my mother so much I think I could burst! :)

But, I shall have to run - Darcy's taken the girls out, so I've got an opportunity to actually get the house more or less cleared up in peace! This will not be a chore, since I'lll have DT and RTD for company. (Is it tomorrow yet? *is horribly impatient and staying away from spoilers*)

The image that'll stay with me from this Christmas? The Cherub [adorable 4 y.o. girl w. long blonde hair], wearing her new 'punchin' gloves' and laying into her new 'puncin' bag'. :) (This is something she's been asking for for MONTHS! We have Wii Sport to thank for this!)

Her second favourite present was clothes & a carry-seat for her Baby Annabell.

No one's going to put *my* youngest in a box! *g*

Also we were greatly entertained this year by Wii Fit - it's a lot of fun watching people trying to catch hula hoops (and keep them spinning) or running a race. Esp if it's my father-in-law! (His Mii is a very good likeness...) And the Cherub trying to do yoga was too cute for words!

I was going to write more, but I'm too tired now. But I had a lovely Christmas. Hope yours was great too. :)

ETA: I knew there was more... This is probably of no interest to anyone except me, but I've spent Christmas looking like a disco ball. A pretty one (w. blue tights & shoes), but I've been dazzling everyone - the sparklepires had nuthin' on me! (This was thanks to Darcy who likes to buy me clothes I would never in a million years buy myself. He's got good taste however, so I tend to go with it. There might be pictures later. Maybe.)

Sending good wishes to everyone out there, whoever or whatever you celebrate! :)

ETA: Thank you lots and lots to [livejournal.com profile] candleanfeather for the beautiful bauble, and to Kathy and Anna for the cards/presents.

And I thought I'd also point towards these stunning TW & DW wallpapers (spoilers for CoE and EoT). I, however, am - as every year - using this picture as my desktop... it's somehow not Christmas without it. Can't remember where I found it, but thought I'd share. :)
