Christmas Day was lovely - slow, relaxing and full of quiet joy. No camera interference today, the images are all stored in my heart, but I can tell you that - presents were opened, carols were sung, happy calls to family made. The rib roast of local grass-fed beef was superb, the Yorkshire pudding was perfect, and the sticky caramel sponges with crispy walnuts were sublime. Oh, yes - there was a bit of washing up to do too!
And a new member joined out little band - introducing Mick! We didn't think we were ready to have another dog in our lives so soon after Robbie - but some things are meant to be, and here he is. We are so glad to welcome him to our family.
It has been a very stormy few days, weather wise, so we are spending another quiet day by the fire, eating leftovers, playing with new toys, reading our Christmas books and just getting to know each other.
Peaceful holiday blessings to you all. xxx
