It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.

We have had the most wonderful of few days, unplugged from screens, emails and mobile phones!!!!  Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day were spent at home with everyone and we have played board games, watched a bit of TV and read some books!  Some of us are back at work later this week and we all have New Year’s Day off and then we will be back fully on Monday Janury 4th! 

We had a wonderful gift box from our great friends Sue and Molly in the US which arrived quite a few weeks before Christmas and which I had to hide in the attic as Treacle would not leave it alone.  I think she knew it was from Molly!  Here are some pictures of the lovely gifts inside.

Treacle got a little mouse from Molly and it plays a tune and she absolutely loves it!

As you can see she is carrying it around.

Molly sent Treacle these biscuits before and she really loves them.

Sue sent me this lovely Crystal which I am going to hang in my kitchen window so it catches the light.

Sue and Molly also sent me this wonderful Airedale pulling a train along.  They are so special and I absolutely love them.  We now have two so we have called them Kelly and Treacle as they look like our Airedales.

The Boys loved trains, and still do, so this is so apt.

There is snow about but has not fallen here in our part of Derbyshire yet.  It is always the same we get snow after Christmas and especially when everyone has to be back at work!  The High Peak have got quite a lot and it is as far as Ashbourne but not reached us.  I am keeping my fingers crossed and Treacle has her paws crossed. 

If you follow me you know I talk about Chatsworth House and visiting when it is dressed for Christmas.  Obviously this year they have not been able to open but have put a tour of the rooms decorated for Christmas on their website and here is the link.

Have a tour around and you will be able to see some of the rooms.  They have not decorated as much as normal obviously as the visitors are not there, but you will get to see some of it.

All of us are off tonight to go and see a special lights event which I will show you pictures of tomorrow.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a good week to come.

Christmas Hugs & Love, Susie xxxx

    We are so happy that you like all of the gifts. We love all of yours as well. I have been playing with grey Lambie a lot, Treacle – actually more than my tennis ball and that is really saying something! We are off to see Christmas at Chatsworth House!

    Oh what a lovely tour!!! The second woman to share part of the tour was from Scotland, wasn’t she? Did I properly identify her accent?
