Wishing everyone a very Happy Christmas.
Who would have thought this time last year that Christmas 2021 would be spent still in a pandemic :(
A few Christmassy photos for the rest of the post.
D decorated the gingerbread biscuits from an English Heritage kit. We've put some on the tree.
The Christmas cake needs the addition of some Nutcracker decorations I bought last year if I could only find them!
I bought a few cheeses in Leominster a few weeks ago and ordered a few from the Wensleydale Creamery Dairy. D ordered the ones below to complete the selection.
We use many decorations for the tree and mantelpiece that we have collected over the years.
Please excuse dusty "coals" in the fire - I should have vacuumed and cleaned them all before putting up decorations!!! Its actually a gas fire which is very effective but we rarely use it. I don't think they make them any more as possibly not deemed safe in these health and safety ridden times!
The last few photos were taken by D - the parakeet was in the garden and the jay seen on a daily walk along a river. The dawn photos are from a bedroom window taken a few days ago.
Photo taken in Coleshill when I braved the florists to buy a wreath.
Not many in the parsnip crop but enough for Christmas dinner.
I hope everyone is staying safe and well and has a good a Christmas as possible.
Photos taken by me with the Panasonic Lumix FZ330 bridge camera and those taken by D with the Canon SX50HS bridge camera.
