Happy Christmas!


During a break in the stormy weather ...
they climbed Glastonbury Tor and savoured a pub lunch with lovely friends.
Now they are cosied and ready for the festivities ...
The last job ...
Christmas cracker making, 
completed in front of the fire ...
Watching a film, nibbling on macarons
and enjoying a tot of sherry!



To all dear bloggy friends ...

warmest wishes are sent to you, 
for a wonderful Christmas 
and the happiest of times in 2014 and beyond ...

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Did your lights stay on? I do hope so, we were lucky, but I know lots of people weren't. Our grandsons had a nightmare journey down from Basingstoke with all trains terminating at Salisbury. However, they arrived in the end, and a jolly good time was had by all.
Happy New Year, I look forward to more of your lovely posts in 2014.
