Happy Christmas!



"Nature is a language - can't you read? Nature is a language - can't you read?" The Smiths

This was our soundtrack for what my daughter described as a "film moment" when the snow began to fall on Christmas Eve as we danced back to the house with our Christmas Branch.

The Gamekeeper came by in a tractor to feed the pheasants, clearing a path through the snow to the woods.

So we collected a Christmas Branch and decorated it.

And gave the tractor-man a wee dram.

Christmas Eve: our "own" venison roasted in a pastry "huff", cabbage and roast potatoes. home-made mince pies.

And soon it was Christmas.



And FL opened his presents...



Happy Christmas to all of you from all of us!

Even the Christmas Elf.

Well I have mixed feelings about The Smiths as the lad across the way at Uni (back in 1983/4) played their album constantly day and NIGHT with the extra special sound system that he had brought with him from home. It was the nights that put me off.

A belated Merry Christmas to you all and "A Very Happy, Much Better New Year!" It's got to be now.

The 'beardwarmer' makes it a complete Outfit...
