Nothing stands still, except in our memory.
As said in Tom’s Midnight Garden (1958), the much-loved children’s fantasy book written by Philippa Pearce that I just finished reading. Thanks to my sister who got it for me for Christmas.

Along with socks, slippers and chocolate, one of the traditions of Christmas is a novelty Christmas jumper. It is after all a great way to make a distinctive appearance, as Mark Darcey made with his festive Rudolph effort to Bridget Jones. After reading a post on the BBC website I decided to choose eight of the most distinctive Christmas sweaters from the Premier League. Do you have a favourite of the eight below? Did you receive anything similar from your presents?
It’s not long left until Christmas Day. Have you any traditions? Are you on schedule for getting everyone’s presents? A year to the day after my last Christmas quiz, here are six of the best feel-good Christmas-themed films. Do you have a favourite from the list or one you always watch?
Hey funky readers! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful 2013. Thanks so much for your support, your likes and comments, and for your own blogs which I enjoy reading so much and just can’t stay away from. I’ve only had this blog for nearly 4 months, but the continued kaleidoscope of eclectic stuff really is something else.
Whatever your resolutions, wishes and dreams you have for 2014 I hope they all come true and your blogs set an even higher standard. And here are 8 very silly jokes to set you on your way, courtesy of the Christmas crackers we opened as a family and finished opening today. As bad as they are, please feel free to react like Sheldon.

What starts with T, ends with T, and is full of T?
What is a frog’s favourite drink?
What do you get if you cross a chicken with a bedside clock?

What do you get if you cross Santa with a duck?

Penny: You really didn’t like it, Sheldon?
Sheldon: No, on the contrary. I found the Grinch to be a relatable, engaging character. I was really with him right until the point where he succumbed to social convention and returned the presents and saved Christmas. What a buzzkill that was.
Leonard: When we watch Frosty the Snowman, he roots for the sun.
Sheldon: Excuse me, but the sun is essential for all life on Earth. Frosty is merely a bit of frozen supernatural ephemera in a stolen hat. A crime, by the way, for which he is never brought to account.
