Twinkly Light Therapy


 I need a bit of Christmas cheer today. Extra shift this week on intensive care took me to bed exhausted this morning and I've just cooked a chicken dinner for Chris when he returned from Church only to be reminded that he and the congregation have gone off to the Crown Pub for their yearly Christmas lunch.
So it's curried chicken for supper me thinks
I think I will start to decorate the cottage this afternoon
Twinkly light therapy......that's the answer to the night shift blues
I may even take my  yearly New York snow globe photo amid the fairy lights


The last couple of years....the photos have turned out very well.

  1. Twinkly lights should indeed bring a sense of Christmas magic and peace to your cottage and to you. Then....a good nights sleep.

  4. Something peaceful about tiny twinkle lights I have the clear ones up year round on a 3 foot grapevine tree as decoration. Love the snow globe!

  6. Ahh - you have my empathy. I worked many a night shift in the CCU among other places - oh dear when was that? 1982 in RT.

  7. Is that a harmonica sitting on the shelf in the top photo? Is there something you're not telling us?

  8. Tree, lights and greens up here. I need green and light therapy too! Now if we could keep the bloody cats out of the tree.....

  9. Please don't drop New York and smash it to bits. That would be even worse than the attack on The World Trade Centre.

  10. Laudably mild reaction to a dinner too many! Maybe put the lights up and then go an have a snooze with the dogs?

  12. Good Sunday, John. I hope by now, you've settled in bed with the dogs. I like the twinkle bit - good coloring!

  13. Twinkly lights are definitely the answer. I did not feel at all Christmassy but now the tree and twinkly lights are up, the Christmas spirit is beginning.

  15. Well, there you go - no need to cook for supper tonight. That's a win in my book. It seems strange to me that the congregation would go en masse to a pub - that would raise a few eyebrows in our part of the world! Enjoy your lights; those photos are beautiful.

  17. Pretty !
    Just got the cards back from the printers so I am signing and addressing the long distance ones today. Picking out the tree tomorrow. and will start putting up the fairy lights.
    I was so on track and then everyone got sick ! so I am about 2 weeks
    late.
    I was just thinking of you and the first photo which I adore, and WaaLaaa here it is in your post today !
    Thank You, made my morning.

    cheers, parsnip

  22. I like sparkly things.

  23. I was just thinking of twinkly light therapy myself !
    The house is sparkling clean and neat and needs some decorations.
    I am considering not having a tree. It might be too drastic and last minute I will be out running around looking for a tree that is leftover .. it will no doubt be the saddest little tree. Which might make it perfect.
    Happy Holidays !!

  24. I ended up not starting with the decorations or cards today, as I had initially planned. Instead I scrubbed the kitchen floor, played hockey, and went to lovely concert. Thinking some twinkly light therapy during our next snowstorm (slated for tomorrow) might be the ticket.
