Christmas has Arrived!


Friday evening we were all out on the park in the centre of the Village for the Christmas Lights switch on.  DH had gone down earlier and set up the PA equipment and was busy playing carols whilst we waited for everyone to arrive and of course the special guest.  It was really, really cold and I had driven down instead of walking and decided to leave Treacle at home as I was helping with tea, coffee and mince pies afterwards.


The special guest, Santa, arrived to switch the Christmas lights on.


DH talking as usual!

The local choir, Friends in Harmony, helped us with singing the carols.

The pictures are unfortunately a little dark because of how far away we were!  It was very nice to go inside afterwards and have a hot drink.  It was a lovely start to the Christmas festivities though. 

This coming Thursday and Friday DH is compering the Light switch on in Ilkeston and Long Eaton and it is getting colder!!! 

During the day on Friday I was busy finishing off two birthday cakes.  Our good friend had made Youngest’s 18th cake as her present to him but on Saturday when his party was, it was also a good friend of ours, his birthday and Girlfriend’s Dad’s 50th this Thursday so we could not leave them out, so I made them each a cake.


This is Alan’s cake whose Birthday was Saturday.


Charles’ cake for Thursday!  His business is selling top of the range vehicles, hence the cars!!!

They were both thrilled, I just hope the cakes both taste good!!!  I will show you the pictures of Youngest’s party tomorrow.

It was a very busy weekend and I am just catching up now!!!!  Needless to say I will be in bed early tonight!!!!

As we have been talking about Christmas, and doing Christmasy things I have changed the blog over to Christmas, hope you like it.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Happy Monday everyone.

Hugs, Susie x
