Nosy Reindeer

A few years ago, my wife told me how fascinating she found other people's homes to be. She told me how she would 'always have a quick peek' as she walked past the houses, looking for a snapshot of the dwellwers' lives.  Anyone who likes photography will understand the concept of 'always looking'... and ever since my wife shared this with me, I can think of nothing else  as I drive/walk by an open curtain.  Awful - isn't it?

I returned from a business trip earlier this evening, and I saw our Christmas tree from outside as I pulled my car onto the drive.  Our living room is on the first floor, so I took this shot from the balcony.

Merry Christmas

Yes... the kids (and us big ones) have just opened presents etc.
Yousef and I will go to the mosque for Friday prayers later. I will leave my red/white hat in the car!

Turkey and Queen's speech to follow.

If this is not celebrating Christmas, I don't know what is!

Seasons Greetings!

My wife was born and raised in London - and I lived there 15 year! Christmas has become part of our life...

Real reason: presents!
