Indulgence

Despite the fact that there is thick snow and -15 temperatures the little waterfall into  our pond continues to function albeit only a tiny trickle. Incredibly, the blackbirds still love to bathe there despite the heavy chill.
We have been  to the French Alps.
Had a wonderful time....and come home to find more of the same.
Had a merry Christmas at our house with chaos at one point as my father knocked over a large quantity of red wine, panic ensuing as furniture, flooring and walls were mopped, tablecloths hastily whisked away and an 11 year old son resolutely giving his Christmas tuba solo recital oblivious to all around him.
Had a merry boxing day in which we sledged and went to my mother-in-law's for lunch. I drank a little red, knocked over three Christmas displays and poured cream from the jug too quickly on to my chocolate log, rectifying it by then tilting it backwards all over my hands. Too much crying with laughter, I am now pooped!
Have a wonderful holiday and don't drink too much (note to self!).

  6. Clare, your description of your Christmas is hilarious, especially your son playing his tuba in the midst of all the chaos. A Merry Christmas to you, a bit late, but who cares, we're crazy fiber artists. XO

  7. What a lovely blackbird, dear Clare!

    I like the blackbirds very much and have several 'families' living all year in my garden - sometimes I find their behaviour almost human!
