xmas pack-away

we got over 123 xmas cards this christmas. jane counted them. she counted up to 123 then found a few more.


i saw my first abandoned christmas tree on new year’s day. here are two i saw yesterday

hear no evil
what a great christmas idea !

failing to set fire to the pudding

it’s traditional to set christmas puddings on fire. jane managed it and it was quite impressive. but unfortunately, by the time it made it to the table it was out. Jane’s dad was intrigued.
