Hello All and a very Merry Christmas to you
The pressies are open so here are a few of the makes I couldn’t reveal before Yuletide:
This year No 1 Daughter had booked us all into a cottage near Cartmel for Christmas. It was lovely. Everything a cottage should be, with interesting nooks and crannies,
quirky little stairways,
and a welcoming kitchen.
It was comfortable and charming. Perfect for a relaxed family holiday.
No 1 Daughter and Son together with No1 Daughter’s boyfriend had settled in and sorted out the decorations and food before I arrived. What a treat to sit together for scrumptious meals. No 1 Daughter’s season chalet hosting a couple of years ago certainly paid off!
We had a wonderful time and with no WiFi nor mobile phone reception – YIPPEEEEEEE!!!!!! – mastered the hilarious art of charades and (almost) got to grips with the complexities of dominos.
Our dogs also had a superb holiday. Looking for their presents,
and enjoying the sort of mischief that only two small dogs can get up to. No 1 Daughter’s dog idolises my rather elderly Cavalier, James, so they were always together …. James adopting a Yoda like mentoring role … treats under the tree find you will ….
He is a wise old boy and after all that food…. James magnificently sums up how I feel.
We have been very lucky. Our thoughts go out to those for whom Christmas is not a happy time.
Love and best wishes for 2015, Moke xx
