Abby's Merry Christmas

Abby & I would like to wish all visitors to I Prefer Reading a very Merry Christmas. As you can see from these photos, Abby has started relaxing already. It's a beautiful summer day here in Melbourne, crisp this morning & a warm, sunny afternoon.

I've been baking cheese & spinach bread to take to my sister's for Christmas lunch tomorrow. I've done a little housework, organized a few things for tomorrow & Abby has been keeping an eye on my progress. Best of all, I don't have to go anywhere near a shop of any description. I'm listening to Annie Lennox & Bryn Terfel's new Christmas CDs which arrived in the mailbox today, at the last possible moment for festive listening & later today I'll be going to a family carol service with friends, a Christmas tradition now for over 10 years.

Over the next week I'll be posting about my books of the year. I usually do a Top 10 but this year, I think I'll copy Cornflower's terrific idea of listing my top books in categories like mysteries, history, classics & biography.

Merry Christmas everyone. I hope the weather in Europe & the US doesn't stop you being where you want to be this Christmas.


  1. Merry Christmas to you and Abby from me and my cats Flora and Mabel!

  2. Have a great Christmas Lyn! I like Abby's idea--I wish I could relax in the sun all afternoon!

  3. Merry Christmas - envy your sun, we're knee-deep in snow in the UK. Abby is lovely.
