My roses are going crazy. They are looking so beautiful. blooms all over the place. We had 4 days of rain only this month. on the return from my walk, i watered the garden..the flowers were starting to wilt.
While walking, I thought about what I might post about today. Its a little story of a christmas morn.
That christmas morn, was a very special morning for me. For not only did I have some presents under my bed. But staring me right in in front of my bed was the most beautiful pram that i had ever seen. It was a red silver cross children's twin pram. (like the one above, but in red).. Sitting on either side were two beautifully dressed most elegant dolls my eyes had ever seen. You can just imagine my delight upon seeing this wonderful present. I ran to my parents room... There the two of them were sat up in bed waiting for me to run in and tell them what santa had brought me.. Mum and dad replied.. "Yes,my darling its a pram fit for a little princess.".. I was their little princess you see.
The dolls were dressed in red velvet dresses and red velvet coats with white fur trimmings.. My mother had her dressmaker make the clothes specially for me. They even had hats to match..
Breakfast was served after we had seen that Santa had eaten his mince pies and drank his cocoa... then we would sit down to a wonderful christmas breakfast.. Then open the rest of our presents that were under the tree. It was magical in my home. The fire was lit.. the christmas lights on. Mum and dad brought my pram downstairs... I had that pram for many many years. I myself when born had a silver cross pram. .. I still think they are so lovely and traditional.
You will soon all be getting ready with your decorations. I have decided on light decorations this year.
I would love to hear about some of your christmas stories from when you were young... and I wonder what will be under your trees. !
wishing you a happy Friday..
