Here are a few photos chosen from the many taken over the Christmas period when our daughter came to stay. We gathered together with some of the family members who could come to our home for the day on the 26th and enjoyed Christmas Day at our local daughter's home.
The evening before our daughter went back to her home in Berkshire she cooked a delicious meal of lasagne, which we had with a mixed salad, and with a starter of melon and prosciutto.
We had more snow which lasted for a few days and then on New Year's Eve the sun came out and there was an opportunity to go into the garden and do some more tidying up. Mr. P hung up a bird feeder full of seeds that one of the grandsons had given us and hopefully we'll see some more birds in our garden.
We had many lovely Christmas gifts from friends and family including flowers, fruit, an indoor pot plant, books and a food hamper. It's good to see the shoots appear from bulbs that were planted in small pots in November.
Yesterday evening we saw the new year in at home as usual, this year just the two of us, and watched the BBC broadcast of the firework display from London's Thames Embankment. This evening we shall go to our local daughter's home for an evening dinner and a time together.
Thank you for your good wishes sent recently.
Sending my love and wishing you a happy, healthy and peaceful new year 2018.
