On the Seventh Day of Christmas......

"On the seventh day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree."
(7 Swans A-swimming refers to the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit,
the seven sacraments or so its believed?).....
On the Seventh Day of Christmas my son will soon be married.....He's just walked in wearing part of his suit and his waistcoat, does he look handsome or what. Hard to believe that my son who stands before me is getting married today, where have the years gone....Well I've finished my coffee so off to finish getting dressed myself for the big day.....lol....
