Wishing all my readers a Happy Christmas

It is nearly Christmas. I am sticking to my weekly posts, so this is the one where I wish you all peace and joy at Christmas. I have some photos of Christmas decorations on Sue’s words and pictures. I am sharing a different one here. Perhaps those who prefer to celebrate a winter holiday will enjoy this.

Wherever you are and whatever you are doing at this season of the year I wish you well.

Alphabet Rhyme: X

My posts for the Blogging from A to Z in April Challenge 2016, here on Sue’s Trifles each consist of one line of a rhyme.  I am also aiming to provide an illustration.

X is for xylophone.  Are you going to take it up?

Sue’s Words and Pictures is also a participant in A to Z in April.

In a previous challenge my A to Z theme was musical instruments.

Looking back over five months of 2015

Every few months I find it necessary to look back over my blogs and see what surprises there have been.  With my reduced blogging output (weekly instead of daily on this blog apart from April) It has been over five months since I published a similar post.

My first post for 2015 was an outline of my plans.  I had not understood that #MondayBlogs do not have to be published on Mondays.

Dealing with shyness was featured on Post40Bloggers.

Two personal posts

Social media and the difficulties of leading a balanced life

Blogging, belief and books

A new word – a rare submission for the Daily Prompt with photo and humour

Not the numbers The internet is huge

The Heretic – Book review of Henry Vyner-Brooks’ historical novel

Valentine’s Day and other Red letter days

Doll’s trousers and hat (crochet)

Life, death, luck and Lent thoughts from Sue, who listens to people talking on trains!

Doll’s clothes and “that dress” Craft and social media

Poetry in Lent A poem and a photo

How to enlarge a knitted garment without frogging

A to Z Challenge 2015 a link to over 26 posts relating to the challenge including the reflections post.

What I have learned about Social Media during April

What’s next on Sue’s Trifles?

Mental Health Awareness Week

Christmas crafts

Patriotic squares and other motifs Crochet

Looking back through my posts, I realise that closing comments after 30 days, while fending off spammers, makes it difficult for genuine readers to comment.  For the A to Z Road Trip, my A to Z page is the best place to comment.

My What’s New page on Sue’s considered trifles is also a source of information about what I am doing online.

Thank you for visiting.  I hope you found something of interest here.
