Let the Holidays begin!

Yay - no more driving to the office until next year! :D
I started the day with a fresh batch of Blueberry Spelt muffins. Sorry, Hero, not for you!
We are incredibly late to get festive around here, because we were having new back and front doors fitted, and there was no point hanging Christmas decorations.
We have still to venture out to the woods to cut our Christmas Branch (the trees are too big!)
So - doors! We have two of them. They are unexpectedly dark brown wood, when I was shown pictures of white painted doors.
But they fit the apertures in the walls, open and close smoothly, have locks... and we no longer have a cat flap held together with duct tape.

The local mouse family can no longer just run under the back door into our kitchen.
The friendly robin can no longer fly in through the cat flap when the going gets tough.

Note to self: fill the bird-feeder.
But they are definitely brown, FL!
Got to go - we have an appointment with a saw and a Scots pine!

Yay! Merry Christmas. You can't beat a good, fitted door. It makes all the difference.

Yes that's brown looking door - it will go nicely with the pink hat!

Happy Christmas! ;D

I think your doors look very nice (if they're anything like ours, darker is better as all the kick marks etc. don't show up so quickly!) - and they fit and lock and everything! I hope you'll show us your Christmas Branch at some point.

Merry Christmas Roobeedoo, from all of us (especially the Dafter who is helping me write this comment)! As my elderly neighbour said to me: "Christmas blessings to all in your house, the two-leggeds and the four-leggeds!"

Happy Christmas to you!

Merry Christmas to you and FL...

Doors are brown but nothing that can't be fixed with a quick coat of paint.

However; they look great and will keep the critters out.
