Merry Christmas

After a couple of rather chaotic weeks leading up to Christmas the day has arrived.

We had a very enjoyable day with family and the weather was cool, with gentle rain.  Quite a contrast to earlier in the week when the temperature reached the high 30s each day. Of course, we ate far too much and have lots of leftovers for the next few days.

I have received some lovely  gifts which I will share shortly.

My little tree was covered with hand made ornaments and others that have been special gifts.  I think I may have to invest in a larger tree next year to accommodate the growing collection.  All have such wonderful meaning.

Our mantle piece looked lovely and festive.  The house is a sweet advent calendar sent by our good friend Lou from the Isle of Man.  It is a lovely addition to our Christmas.

I hope you and yours had a wonderful Christmas with those you love.
