Christmas Carols Quiz part 2.........

Remember the first Christmas Carol's Quiz? Well here's part Two.

You all did so well with the last one I'm sure you'll find this one really easy.

You remember how it goes - the initials represent the first line of Christmas Carols and Songs.

Here's an example:

O.I.R.D.C. - Once In Royal David's City - get the idea?

Email (through my profile) your answers to me by Friday 14th December then on Saturday 15th I'll post the answers and the winner(s).
All those who get any right can claim this badge for their blog. You'll notice it says Part Two so it will look slightly different on your blog to Part One.

1. I.D.O.A.W.C.

2. I.T.B.M.W.

3. A.F.T.R.O.G.

4. D.D.M.O.H.

I'll just slip this in quietly, no I won't I'll shout it out 'cos I'm proud as punch

Mimi (Mimi Writes) has given me this award

You know my motto - You can't have too many awards.

Thank you Mimi xxxx



My Dad came out of hospital on Monday, on crutches, and is doing great. So good in fact he went out last night playing Whist! He didn't walk there, luckily there is a service called Ring and Ride which will pick him up at the door, deliver him to where he's going, then pick him up and take him back home. We are all thrilled that only 2 weeks after having a full hip replacement, and after months of agony, Dad is back in the land of the living, because to be honest he'd all but given up

Flowerpot said...

I'm so pleased about your dad - and bet he is too! He must be feeling amazing to go out playing whist. Bless.

Sounds like that tough old bird was down, but hadn't given up!

Queenie said...

You two are birds of a feather, I'm so happy he's doing well.

Akelamalu said...

Thanks BellaX

He's talking about going on the bus now further afield to play Bridge Flowerpot - I suggested he wait a few weeks! ;)

He was definitely down Buffalo, but thankfully he's not anymore! :)

Catch said...

great news about your Dad, I have heard people do well with those hip replacements and its so wonderful that they can fix them now, but it all sounds painful to Glad to hear he is doing so well!

Akelamalu said...

Thanks Ciara. Glad you like the Christmas songs.

Good luck Gleds, I think you'll get them once you get started. Thanks for my Dad too. x

Thank you Bee, Christmas will be a lot happier with my Dad out of pain. x

Dad has had less pain even with the operation than he had before Catch, and I have to say I was the same after my knee replacement. It's good to see you back honey, I hope this means you're recovering well. xx

Ron said...

Hey Akelamalu~

SOOOOO glad to hear the good news on Dad! Last Spring, I shared some Reiki with a friends' Mom, while she was in the hospital, who also had hip surgery. She is doing well too! Yeaaaa!

Congrats on your award.'re everyones Best Blogging Buddy!

And you deserve it!

Have a great day, my friend.


Akelamalu said...

I know it's great isn't it Ron, of course we know the Reiki helped, it was good of you to send some. xxx

Nea said...

Oh my word, he came out of the hospital on Monday and already he is on the go? Wow, I am impressed.......Mom was flat for about a month after her surgery, all she could manage was to hobble to the bathroom and back. Well I suppose the pain he WAS going through was greater than what is he having now. Mom said there is nothing that matches the pain from bone grinding on bone. And I can imagine....

So glad for him, and for you, it must be wonderful to see him enjoying life again, and soon he will be out of pain completely. Or I think so, I don't hear Mom complain that much, although her other hip is giving her trouble now.

Pauline said...

I'm so pleased to see your dad is doing well!

Mary said...

I am so glad your father is back to normal and that his hip replacement was successful. It's so hard when we are in pain and things don't work the way they used to.

Congratulations on the award. You are deserving and it is very cute.

I looked at the carols, but right now I'm so tired I can't think of the answer to even one. I will try again later. Thanks for letting me know.
