The most wonderful time of the year…

Being new here in Blog land, I still marvel over all these amazing Blogs.
I really like a lot of them and will be happy to talk about how
beautiful or inspiring they are.
But for now, I wanted to tell you about one
 I found just an hour ago
(it’s the middle of the night now).
It’s the blog of Natasha called, Keeping the Christmas Spirit Alive, 365.
Before I go further, I will have to tell
the people who don’t like X-mas
to close there eyes and I will shout when this is over…
And Yes, I know what time of the year it is (still August right? just checking).
I really enjoy that time of the year when there are more lights shining in the dark streets, people are friendlier, houses are being made pretty and we go back to Amsterdam, visiting family and friends.
On this blog (she also writes a blog with her sisters, ‘3 sisters, 365′  and the blog ‘5 minutes just for me’), you will find ideas for X-mas and beautiful photo’s to go along with the tips.
As I am typing this,
Christmas music is playing for more than an hour from her blog
 (no kidding, I love it!), I just couldn’t turn it off…
And let me tell you something, I really don’t like music jumping up at me,
when I visit a website or a blog.
So, to have her I-pod selects playing Christmas songs in August, what can I say?
I really was feeling happy and singing out loud, nodding my head and all!
Luckily everybody in the house is sleeping now, so they don’t laugh at me…
If you want to have a taste of  X-mas spirit,
grab a cup of tea,
hop on over to Australia 
and
Enjoy!

So, 
 YOU CAN OPEN YOUR EYES AGAIN…
Bye now!

    Thank you so much for this sweet review of my blog! You are so kind. I am glad you like the music as I am a bit like you and don’t like music on blogs but how can you resist Christmas tunes!

    I had no idea that you were so new to blogging Maureen! Your blog is wonderful.

    Best wishes for a happy weekend,
    Natasha.

    I am Christmas crazy… definitely looking at this blog. When we viewed our tiny house, I told my husband that I didn’t think it would ‘work’, as I couldn’t see where I would put our Christmas tree! We got the house and now he has to move furniture in the attic at Christmas!! Lx

    Yes, I too recently discovered Natasha’s blog. She seems like such a sweetie, and I adore Christmas all year long also. I’m often singing Christmas songs whilst I’m washing the dishes. My children sing along too. They don’t think I’m crazy, thank God! I can’t wait till Christmas time again.
