Advent 24

Bastard, bastard Blogger just ate my post. Happy Christmas, you implacably merciless piece of software.

Anyway, I said, 'it's Santa!'

It's not really Santa, it's my friend Tom who came round with his absolutely ludicrous bicycle. We all stood in the street and had a go:

Now, with everything except the missing stuff grotesquely badly wrapped and the boys sleeping fitfully and the Minster bells taking a short intermission, I am off to bed. I hope you have a lovely Christmas if you're into that kind of thing, and a peaceful Wednesday if not. 

As peaceful as this beatific Prog Rock mince pie, indeed.

Merry, Merry Christmas Waffle. I hope your day is fun, happy and peaceful. And, may 2014 bring you the belief that you are as fabulous and talented as we, your readers know you are.

A Merry Christmas to you from sunny Durban where it's 24 degrees C (75 F). We were in York in late January this year and I so wish I could be there now. That street photo has made me want to jump into my screen as if it were the chalk drawings in Mary Poppins.

Merry Christmas from rainy Brussels! Wishing you and your family a excellent day. Enjoy York and more beatific mince pies x

Merry Christmas from snowy New York, and thank you for your Advent efforts --- far better than prying open the dodgily perforated flaps on the highly disappointing one I got.

Hi Emma, I came across your blog just a few weeks ago. Since then, I have laughed, cried and cheered along with you, as I caught up on the goings on in Waffle World. I must congratulate you on taking the plunge to leave behind a job that wasn't you and invest in a talent that you so clearly have. I very much hope that this year is filled with more opportunities and experiences which bring you laughter, joy, meaning and, every now and then, the inspiration to write. Thank you for what you've shared on your blog. Wishing you well and happy. Here's to 2014. Ash.
