And the winner is.....

Why hello Dear Bloggers...hows things with you...well I did the random number generator thingy...but I will keep you waiting .. just for a bit.

First things first...a bit of Christmas Nostalgia...I really feel nostalgic especially this time of year...so heres a blast from my Christmas Past..

Well what 10 year olds Christmas wouldn't be complete without...


Thats right a girly Christmas Annual..I still have all mine!

A romantic Christmas film too?



Why Hello there Mr Richard Chamberlain...ooo isn't he dreamy?

Lets not forget some chocolate...


What have Quality Street done to their tins these days...they are hideous!! (I used to love the 'Lady and Gentleman' on these tins...and yes the chocolate triangles are thinner than they used to be..)

When I was growing up we had a mini bar in the front room, with optics and high stools....and my mum used to make...



Snowballs... really rather gross when you thing about it...kinda alcoholic eggy milkshake really..

Prawn cocktail to follow....





Lets not forget some Christmas perfume...

I always buy myself a bottle of this, this time of year...the smell just reminds me of Christmas, back in the 80's!

And in the afternoon, whats on the telly?


Half a sixpence...love it, love the songs too!

And if you don't want to spend the 3 main days at Christmas at home...why not spend it at Butlins instead? (I remember 3 Christmases spent at holiday camps - I thought they were the most glamourous places ever!)




So thanks to Mr Google for the images I found..hope you don't mind me borrowing them :0)

Now on to announcing Little Sues new owner (Here she is with Stanley)
