Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – Weekly Round Up – December 20th -26th – Christmas Carols, Short Stories, Books and Funnies

Welcome to the posts that you might have missed on Smorgasbord this week.

I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas Day despite the restrictions. We were quiet and enjoyed some telephone calls with family and a Spanish themed lunch of Sherry, Paella and a very good Rioja.

It will be 2021 for the next round up and at least there is some positivity to look forward to with Brexit (which will hopefully pass in Parliament next week) various vaccines and a new President in the USA. Fingers crossed it all goes smoothly and we can focus on getting our lives back on track.

Have a lovely week and hope to see you when you have the time.. a few posts to keep you amused and of course some books and reviews.

My thanks to William Price King, Debby Gies and Daniel Kemp for their contributions to the week and to you for all your support…

  1. Thanks for letting me join you this week, Sally. We just got home after a brief gathering with the family. It’s time to get back to normal eating after a couple of days of feasts.
