OK, I'm going to be totally honest here and tell charming host Michael,
along with any Scribble Picnic participants who may
make it here today, that I'm really cheating and beg forgiveness.
This is not original art - I just took readymade, edited a bit, but didn't even
have time to do my usual 'watercolour effect'.
Yes Michael, what were you thinking of when you picked BANG! as today's
theme? And expecting a Brit to actually work on this day - shame on you!
Just kidding, but Boxing Day is my most special day of the year, and
after such a busy past two days I had nothing ready for the picnic today -
well other than leftovers - mince pies with Cumberland rum butter,
sherry trifle, a nice chunk of Stilton with half a bottle of good Port, and a
bowl of leftover snack mix which did the rounds on Christmas Eve!
What made a 'bang' around here?
Even pulling crackers, which we did a lot of, only made mediocre
snaps, definitely not a big bang within hearing distance!
So there you have it, and yes, it is a 'bang up' day here - brilliant sunshine,
calm, and warm enough to head outside for a picnic - if you have patio heaters,
warm sweaters, and lots of warming drinks!
Hmm, that said, I'm off to at least make a hot chocolate which I will
enjoy in my new (show you later) very neat huge Anthropologie mug (a gift
from granddaughter Jasmin), before the sun sinks too low.
Hope your Christmas was perfect.
Happy Boxing Day to all.
