Phew! Just finished wrapping the last of the presents & icing the Xmas cake.  Tomorrow will be spent with food prep for The Big Day (& then an evening watching Fellowship of the Ring as we begin our annual festive LotR marathon. Woot!)

So, I just wanted to wish everyone a very happy holidays (whatever you celebrate - or don't.)

Here's Bud getting festive...

I haven't been able to write anything festive but, if you fancy a bit of McSheppymas, then here's an oldie:
'Rodney’s extra-special, top-secret, hush-hush mission'. ♥

And don't forget the lovely work being shared at [livejournal.com profile] sga_art_santa!

Happy Holidays!
*hugs*

... & checking it twice! *g*
He's loving his Advent calendar (as usual! *g*)
This year, the little chocolate slabs have embossed images on them - so far we've had a bauble & Santa!

Here he is waiting patiently for today's window to be opened this morning. ♥

On the subject of festive things, I got kudos from a story on AO3 earlier that I couldn't even remember writing. So, I read it, & it made me smile all over again. LOL
A little bit of smoochy McShep fun: Under the mistletoe

Something else that I always associate with the holidays - Lord of the Rings!  I've really enjoyed watching the vids from The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies world premiere in London last night.
I can't wait to see it!  We'll be rewatching the extended editions of Unexpected Journey & Desolation of Smaug before we go, & then at Xmas it's our annual rewatch of the LotR trilogy.  I love it!

Yesterday, Bud hosted a tea party to help raise funds for the Labrador Rescue South East & Central (who brought him to us), & we managed to raise £60! \o/
His Aunties [livejournal.com profile] lantean_drift, [livejournal.com profile] saffron_1 & [livejournal.com profile] battyoldflapper came, too & there was much laughing, chatting, tea drinking, cake eating & Bud worshipping! *g*

Here's the Budster 'working hard' to entertain his guests... LOL

He was a bit partied out at that point as he had had to leap about & give everyone big snuggles as they arrived. *g*  (Not to mention all of the 'baking supervision' that he'd been doing for the past couple of days. *g*)

More pics of cakes & Bud!

Happy Nearly New Year's, everyone! :)

I hope that everyone has had a smashing few days!

We had a lovely time with family on Christmas Day, & Bud had so much fun opening & playing with his presents! *g*

And then it was all a bit too much for him & a nap was in order! LOL

We've had pretty much constant rain, so there have been a lot of long & wet (& muddy!) walks but then it's all the nicer to come back home & get warm & dry (& have a nice mince pie & a cuppa!)

Happy Friday, folks!
*hugs*

I have a teeny, tiny ficlet to share.  I know - shocking! LOL
I actually wrote it as a bit of fun to include with my virtual holiday gifts this year, & the lovely tarlanx suggested that I share it with everyone else.  So, here it is. :)

You've got mail
McShep, G, fluff

Speaking of fic - my sweet [livejournal.com profile] xanthe has posted the most lovely & fun holiday fic.  It's called 'Silent Night' & is set in her 24/7 universe.  It's a mulitfandom story & there are lots of old friends to catch up with at Christmas! \o/

We'll be starting our annual holiday rewatch of the LotR Trilogy (extended editions, of course *g*) with Fellowship this evening.  I can't wait! Woo-hoo!

I hope that whatever holiday you celebrate (even if it's just 'it's Tuesday!' *g*) that everyone has a wonderful festive season.
*big hugs*



Happy Holidays, folks!

A couple of people asked for some pics of Bud & our Christmas tree.
I'm afraid I couldn't get him to pose by the tree (he just kept wagging The Tail of Doom & scattering ornaments to the far corners! LOL)
So here he is looking very put upon to be having his picture taken (again!!) in front of the hearth by his stocking.

I bought new lights to use as a garland on the mantle this year.  They're handmade Italian glass with little sparkly leaves that reminded me very much of Lothlorien. :)

Xmas at Chez Bud

As usual, we have a few new fannish decorations for the tree, so I thought I'd take some pics of them especially.

pics this way... )

Keeping in the festive frame of mind, here's a sweet holiday film starring Jared. 
It has a really good cast & is based on the early life of the artist Thomas Kincaid.  ([livejournal.com profile] doylebaby I thought of you! *g*)
It's very sweet & Jared is wonderful as Kincaid.

Thank you, as always, to the amazing saldemonium for her generous donation of server space for vid hosting.

So, it's Christmas Eve tomorrow & I still have lots to do.
*panics mildly*

Hope everyone is having a lovely Sunday!

We had a lot of fun here at Chez Bud.
Bud was especially excited opening all of his presents (& then trying to open ours, too!) ♥



It was like Xmas exploded all over the lounge… )

I won't be around much for the next few days as I have to go into hospital - again. *groan* It's an exploratory procedure & should only be for a day, but it's a general anaesthetic & they say they may need to keep me in. Hopefully, that won't happen! *fc*

Take care, everyone!
*hugs*

I missed this pic when I was posting photos of the tree yesterday.



Obi Wan & Qui Gon, plus Han Solo & Greedo, a scatttering of black Labs (naturally!) & a homemade Steve&Danno heart (with jingle bells! LOL) *g*

I actually put our decorations up early this year (in honour of [livejournal.com profile] xanthelj's visit last week *g*) but have only just got around to taking some pics.

Here's my helpful assistant who also supervised* the putting up of the tree.


*translation: generally got in the way, sniffed the contents of every box, rolled around on the tree branches while I was trying to put it together, knocked globes onto the floor, etc, etc... *g*


Bud invites you to see his Christmas decorations... )

*sings*
'It's starting to feel a lot like Christmas...' *g*


Happy Thursday to everyone!
*hugs*

ETA: d-oh!  I forgot these guys. *g*

HMS Ocean has been on deployment for seven & a half months, including being involved in Operation Ellamy.
Now they're coming home for Christmas...





This made me laugh & smile & tear up, too!
Well done, lads (& lasses) - thank you for your service. Welcome home!
