Christmas and all that

Christmas Eve was a very busy and good day, it was spent at Church as most Sundays, the morning service was amazing. I loved Chamberlin the camel. The evening service was a carol and candle service which was very beautiful. Chris's family had sent a table centre piece which was placed on the communion table and was very special I was moved to tears a few times.
After the service 8 of us went for a Indian meal at Cafe Garden. It was really nice to eat and relax with friends and just enjoy some down time.

Christmas Day was a really nice day and saw 2 special guests arrive on the sound desk, yes none other than Robbie and Rudolph, though Rudolph only stayed for 5 minutes Robbie enjoyed the view for the service.

I always love the Christmas day service at Church, it is just one of those services that are always fun, loud and full of joy. It was tinged with some sadness, but over all a wonderful family day.
Once home I cooked the Christmas Dinner, Venison. Boy oh boy was it tasty!!!

Both Mrs EB and I really enjoyed it. Afterwards and once the dishwasher was loaded, a fire lit and we both had a glass of Red we opened our presents, a big thank you so much for your presents to us, they were all so thoughtful and special. That isn’t meant to be cheesy!

I have to mention one present from Mrs EB it is a NEW Beatles album!!! Called LOVE. I have a few hero's one of them is Sir George Martin. He produced The Beatles, and was asked by Cirque du Soleil if he could do something with The Beatles music? Well after 2 years and help from his son Giles this album is now available.

With LOVE, Cirque du Soleil celebrates the musical legacy of The Beatles

Born from a personal friendship and mutual admiration between the late George Harrison and Cirque founder Guy Laliberté, LOVE brings the magic of Cirque du Soleil together with the spirit and passion behind the most beloved rock group of all time to create a vivid, intimate and powerful entertainment experience.
LOVE evokes the exuberant and irreverent spirit of The Beatles, as interpreted through the youthful, urban energy of a cast of 60 international artists. Using the master tapes at Abbey Road studios, Sir George Martin and Giles Martin have created a unique soundscape of The Beatles music for LOVE. The custom-built theatre at The Mirage features 360° seating, panoramic video projections and surround sound which will envelop the audience, who will experience The Beatles music like never before...

The Album is amazing. I am totally blown away by it. It is a flowing album, every track is segued and the new mixes are just mind blowing. It is a sort of new Sergeant Peppers, but that would limit it. If you like The Beatles it is a must have album!!!

Now I really want to see the show
