Welcome to the round up of post on Smorgasbord you might have missed this week.

There seems to be little let up from either virus or weather this week and apart from a trip the supermarket and a few turns around the garden I have not ventured out relying on indoor exercise options. I am grateful apart from an inquisitive robin who sat on the windowsill one day, nobody has seem me bopping around the kitchen to Status Quo and Tina Turner with a carrot peeler and wearing my apron.

In case you are wondering this is not a new trend of mine.. here I am the first Christmas in our first home 40 years ago. Only I seem to have a glass of sherry in my hand rather than a carrot peeler. For some reason I thought a goose was a good idea for Christmas dinner..more fat than meat…

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…

final weekly round up

Welcome to the weekly round up with posts you might have missed this week on Smorgasbord.

As you will see it has been a busy week on the Christmas Book Fairfront and it looks like I will have just enough time to include all the authors currently in the Cafe and Bookstore with recent reviews before Christmas. I won’t be taking any new authors until the New Year now and already have some terrific ones lined up.

The Cafe and Bookstore is seven years old now and time for a revamp for 2021. The book fair has been a great opportunity to update the authors on the shelves and I have some more details to add to them to provide more comprehensive information.

Next year I also want to go back to the Blogger Daily at least three times a week as I know I have neglected to get…

Welcome to the round up of post that you might have missed this week on Smorgasbord..

Well this week has certainly been a rollercoaster ride. Televisions around the world have been overheating and the screens shouted at as the American Election took place and lockdowns and further restrictions were announced to try and harness the rampaging virus. So many lives in the balance for one reason or another and after months of this, it would be really amazing if next week starts to see a de-escalation of hostilities on all fronts.

All we can do is watch and stay safe.

It has been the usual week here on Smorgasbord, but I did get out and about earlier in the week for an interview which was great fun and did me the power of good. A link to that post further down the page.

I am also working on the Christmas…
