The chances of reading a blog post from me tomorrow are nil. Not you understand, because I've run out of things to say. Oh no. Because I'll be too busy. Probably, but no. Enjoying the company of some friends and my beloved parents. Yes, but no. Because: I'm enormously sentimental; I cry at anything.... and a Christmas post would end up being a big ol' wallow fest.
If I could have one wish, it would genuinely be for Peace On Earth. I wonder, often, if there would be so much conflict if women were more deeply involved. And so as not to turn this into a speech by a Miss World contestant, I'll get on with wishing you a really happy and peaceful Christmas, if not surrounded by, then assured of the love of your family and friends.
The whingeing will re-commence - sooner than you'd like, probably. C'mon back y'all.

Thank you for your Christmas greeting Julia and I'm sending those words right back to you!
Sentimentality is some thing I happen to be an expert in...I've always been know as the family member who would cry 'to see a cat miaow' so I totally understand your feelings at this time of year.
I hope you and your family have a wonderful time and I'm so looking forward to your postings in 2010.
Until then I'll wish you the joys of the season (from a grumpy old woman to a grumpy young woman LOL!)

Love the peace ornament and wish you a peaceful day tomorrow and time to have with your immediate family.
Can't wait for the new year and new crafting projects.

Christmas is a great time to be sentimental, and i've spent the afternoon sniffling at the pictures watching 'Nativity!'
Blessings to you and yours Julia,

If you can't be sentimental at Christmas Julia... when can you be? And from someone in the past week who has cried at Elf the film, at a card received from a bloggy friend and at watching the kids sprinkling glittery porridge oats over the green outside the house... you're in good company :D We all loves ya :)

Have an amazing Christmas matey. ***hugs***

Glad I 'found' you this year Julia as I love your blog posts. They are always funny and often thought-provoking (whether that's intentional or not!).
Have a very Happy Christmas!

Can't promise you Peace on Earth - sorry Hun. But do bring out an extra Kleenex and have a look at my blog - you might need it. =0)

Merry Xmas to you - we had ours yesterday as we do here in Denmark.

Right back at you and yours!

Despite having thrown in the Christmas towel before the actual event, I have happily sniffled my way through the seasonal films being shown on this year's 24 hour Christmas Movie channel!
