the Year's Turn

We've had an enjoyable busy few days , between family and friends, as it should be at this time of the year.

The hoped for crisp dry weather has disappeared into gales and rain


Luckily the Pirate's Daughter and family left before the worst set in...and much discussion was over the route....


I'm trying to get all my cards sent...but we've only so much energy and time!


I think I ought to produce cards to sell!!

After another "bash" on card writing we had friends over...with a wire haired terrier name of Charlie.

Other friends called by after lunch and we had a living room full-marvellous !
We had a walk in the woods and an excuse for more talking and coffee and biscuits.
Charlie just preferred his stick....


The Solstice is here, the shortest day has been.  The daylight begins to grow on the fourth of January.

Blessings Be to All, whatever your beliefs.

Wishing you many a light in the dark days. Or a stick to chew on a rug, whichever you prefer.

Have a lovely Christmas. I've enjoyed reading your blog over the year. I am full of admiration for you making all those cards... I intend to make just one this year, and I had better get on with it!
