Merry Christmas


Well, it's finally here. Tomorrow is Christmas Day! Today I thought I'd share with you another photo of the Municipal Offices, all lit up for Christmas. I have bemoaned the lack of festive lights in Cheltenham this year but the Council building really does look lovely.

I'm taking a few days off from blogging (I think we all need a break!) but I'll be back next week. I'm working all day today, this evening I'm off to the pub for a festive tipple, and I may not get round to visiting you all, so I'll just take this opportunity to wish you and yours a very happy and peaceful Christmas. I hope it brings you everything you wished for. Enjoy.

Well you left us with a knockout image. Really perceptive of you to go with b&w for this image to give it such a dreamlike quality. Have a fabulous Christmas
and hope the fella in the red suit brings you all you desire.

Merry Christmas Marley! I guess since you left us with this beautiful photo, you deserve a couple days off,lol.
I just got back from the local "pub" too with Nick. We took the kids out looking at Christmas lights then dropped them at home and we went out for a bit.

Hard to believe the big day is nearly here!

Santa is still in a holding pattern over the US, we won't have Christmas Eve for another 24 hours so I hope all goes well for you and then we feel all the love. Merry Christmas!

Can't agree more about needing a few days off. Our weather has been beastly! Need some good Christmas pudding and a spot of rum :)

Merry Christmas, Marly!!

By the way, you really must see It's a Wonderful Life - I cried like a baby!

I'm going to feel like Santa bypassed me without your posts! ;)

Have a great break, Marley! And have a wonderful Christmas!

:) what beautiful light display.

Hope you've had a lovely Christmas.

Lovely photo - very romantically festive (how about that, YOU can make a Municipal building look romantic :) & well done to include the trees with lights in the foreground.
I wish you a very Merry Christmas and it's been just great getting to know you & Cheltenham thru your posts. Hope Marley gets lots of treats (that he definitely deserves) during holidays.

Marley did you imbibe at the pub then pass out in front of this cherry municipal hall?
