    Thank you for you kind messages Dina, Debbie and Sheila - I hope you and your loved ones have a very enjoyable Christmas. xx

    The clip posted by Dina brought back memories of watching the Goodies on TV - and the shaggy dog in the picture reminded me of a pre-school TV programme I loved watching in the 1970's ... but I'd forgotten how cheeky Dougal used to be! ...

    ... a nostalgic ride back to the days when advent calendars were sweet enough (without needing to contain chocolate!) and the toys requested in letters to Santa were entertaining enough (without needing to be very expensive & high tech!) ...

    ... and, in those days, Rudolph would have just followed his red nose (rather than using Sat Nav LOL) and on Christmas Eve, children went to sleep and didn't take a peek until daybreak (as the online 'Santa Tracker' didn't exist!) - and although there are still 2 sleeps until Christmas ... this evening, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with all of you in this fabulous forum family ...

    Love and best wishes to everyone,

    The days of my rock-n-roll lifestyle are long gone but, at this time of year, my powerchair is fully charged-up and I'm ready to rock around the Christmas tree ...

    ... with Brenda Lee ...

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=DSHGd4lmLd4

    ... then, it's all round to Mrs Brown's, for a festive comedtree (including some barking-mad trimmings)....

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=zoWGWTPgJmc

    Meanwhile, this Celtic woman in Dublin has staged her Christmas tree to be a beautiful treet ...

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=9lIHKyYmWGU

    ... but, to be frank, Betty's tree has been trimmed far short of expectations ...

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=tulFeVPSb7k

    ... and while Welshmen trim their tree with promises to be home for Christmas ...

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HuKrotjHiGc

    ... the King of Rock-n-Roll branches out with soothing sounds of silver bells ...

    On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love sent to me 12 drummers, drumming along with half a dozen seasonal family favourites.

    Drum-roll please ...

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=zP5R9YXkk-w

    Roll-up, roll-up - more than enough breakfast is being drummed up ....

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=EFgdhZGLJrY

    After breakfast, I must drum up enough enthusiasm to do some Christmas shopping - and I've enough funds in my Christmas kitty to buy gifts 'from the Kitty'...

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=T-Gc84R81PQ

    With all my buddies to buy for, my Christmas gift list has snowballed enough already - but, unelfishly, I mustn't forget about my elf...

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KfZqqO1ZCvs

    On the 12th day of this forum's 'Cracker of an Advent Calendar', I think I have already included more tinsel than turkeys? ...

    ... and you probably think Kayleigh is crackers enough already! ...

    ... but to make sure my Christmas day turkey has big enough drumsticks and enough room for all the stuffing, I have ordered one ahead of time ...

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=aFgLrWiNHFc

    ... and the last link, in this Christmas post, is to a winter wonderland - where Santa has drummed up more than enough seasonal work for dozens of his elves ...

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xvHQO9LT6ZI

    Sending lots of love & very best wishes to everyone in this fabulous forum family (and please take care, especially if you are going out and about in the wintery weather this season).

    Love Kayleigh x

    On the 11th day of Christmas my true love sent to me, 11 pipers piping ... calm Christmas music with bells on ...

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=05CcdX2HC6A

    ... whilst pipes, overseas, were calling for some much needed peace ...

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=TwyFTRGiIUU

    Meanwhile, a bagpiped dream of a stocking filler ...

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=M0XYgZKBhUQ

    ... cleared the pipes, in time for the Stewart clan's Silent Night at Stirling Castle ...

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=F-H1tiZ-23Q

    But silence has been interupted by a question in the pipeline - why do we like to serve Christmas puds too piping hot??? ...

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=gy0HGvCa978

    ... because it's the only time of year when Supermarkets sell plenty of brandy butter!

    But where is Sweet Lord Sugar? ...

    ... well, the latest sound waves (from my seven swans a swimming) are that the sugar-babes have arranged a rather sweet surprise for their Sugar Daddy ..

    ... on the riverbank, where the Lords of Dance (and their ladies-in-waiting) are ready to tap out a merry riverdance for him ...

    Sending everyone warm wishes for a peaceful day,

    Hi Kayleigh,

    I’m more interested in who will be at no.10 on Friday but enough of politics. Whoever it is will be lording it up or maybe even ladying to be politically fair. I look forward to your next musical post.

    Love

    On the tenth day of Christmas my true love sent to me, Time Lords a leaping ...

    There's nothing like a Dame to get a Christmas party started ...

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=pdO3f31WaIE

    ... and on the ninth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me more than 9 ladies dancing ... and it's a line up that even Santa would be proud of ....

    As a Christmas bonus, my true love popped in with some legs .. & Co ...

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ItNmDhns4Gw

    ... and the icing on the Christmas cake is that I see the lake has frozen - and now I see 2 females dancing on the ice! ...

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=0lB34qNuWHA

    I hope you have enjoyed today's entertainment, behind door number 9 of the 'Cracker of an Advent Calendar'.

    My true love has promised to send me 10 leaping Lords, by the time we are ready to see who is behind door number 10! LOL

    Love Kayleigh x

    On the eighth day of Christmas my true love sent to me 8 maids a milking ...

    ... and, Ding Dong, the maids have arrived! - but I don't know what the cows in my dairy will make of them??...

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=cqXG28ffG48

    I'm going to need extra milk in time for the Forum Family's Christmas party (and I've herd that I need to provide extra portions of cream for the Forum's Secret Santa). So, hopefully, the new maids will be better at milking than the previous ones - who, for some reason, could never get anything out of Daisy (despite her always going commando!) ...LOL ..

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=FiKI4YWJJKw

    ... and although they are the same breed, I've never had any trouble getting milk from my best cow, Pat! ..

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=3aSvDV7pHe4

    The Forum's 'Cracker of an Advent Calendar' should provide more than enough crackers & cheese for the party! - and some entertainers are due to leap out of the Calendar over the next few days.

    So, I just need to set the scene with some mistletoe and wine - and although some views are from the rooftops, don't be put off if you don't like heights (because this festive scenery is Cliff free!) .....

    Wishing you all a happy and amoosing day.

    Love

    On the seventh day of Christmas my true love sent to me 7 swans a swimming ...

    ... and although he assured me that all rehearsals had gone swimmingly, I've got all feathers crossed that their performance doesn't go down the Swanny!! LOL...

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=krDUAHwpSXk

    I am very impressed with how regal one of them is! ...

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=F23CK6d3bB8

    ... and when they are not going off-piste, there's nothing they love more than swanning around on the lake and going with the flow of mother nature ..

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Q51WsiIVZOQ

    I hope everyone has a re-assuringly restful day,

    Love Kayleigh

    P.S. Before the swans swam away, I noticed that those swimming near the Swannery in Dorset must be very hardy! ...

    I dont know how you do it but your advent calendar is fantastic and brings festive cheer. I used to play duck, duck goose with my class after PE... They loved it !

    Like you , I am going to be closely supervising the decorations. Already looking forward to the seventh day ( no pressure Kayleigh)

    Hi Debbie,

    Both my daughters are primary school teachers who changed careers in their late 30’s. They recount many stories of the joys the children bring as well as the challenges.

    Kayleigh, your mention of Woolworths brings back happy memories of spending my pocket money on records. I didn’t have a sweet tooth then and my daddy wasn’t into sugar but it was the son of his best friend who got me my first job in the industry.

    My first record purchase age 13 was this https://youtu.be/iufj20tS6wI
    I think I have matured in my musical preference.

    Love,
    Barry
