I'm sorry there is no 'cricket on the hearth' but if you are cold you could go closer to really feel the warmth.
Beware if you get up to festive hanky-panky in front of the fire as your reflection may show up in the background just like the pattern on the rug.
I really wanted to show some photos taken under a Cypriot sun but I was told that I would be censored if the ladies of the house were included. (Well I think censored was the word they used.) So I settled for the 'he-man' look instead.
Enjoy the rest of the holiday and have a Happy New Year, not forgetting to visit Carmi at thematic-photographic-227
