Good Morning Ladies,
How are we all this chilly Tuesday Morning?? We had a quiet start to the week, Paul worked from home and the girls were both at work yesterday, I got on with some 'online' Christmas shopping, got a few more bits sorted thankfully.
Sophie went to the Christmas light event at Blenheim Palace, she said they were amazing, a lovely experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our Carol concert, the Nativity was lovely although Mary was clearly not a 'keen Mother', Baby Jesus was stripped of his swaddling and spent half the service face down on a hay bale! It is nice to see some of the big burly farmers taking part, dressed up as Wise Men, why is it always Tea Towels that create the head gear?! Sadly they didn't sing 'Ding Dong Merrily on High', it was one of Mum's favourites, there were plenty of others though. After the Nativity and Santa appearing on his 4 x 4 Quad Bike they had Mince Pies, Mulled Wine and Hot roasted Chestnuts, the Mulled wine was very welcome, purely to warm my hands on mainly. I was so cold that my Fingers and Toes felt like they were burning at the tips, I was well wrapped up, lots of layers and a blanket round my legs. We kept our distance just to be safe, it was sad to see not so many faces but the majority of the village are elderly and far too vulnerable, especially with this Variant.
We had a lovely walk around the village posting Christmas cards yesterday, It was bitterly cold but the fresh air was lovely. I think we will try and get out for a walk (well roll in my case) while Paul is working from home, it just feels so good to breathe in fresh air without a mask, lovely clean country air too!
Today's card is one of Michele's Christmas cards, it is lovely, the paper is really versatile and could be used for any occasion, it looks incredibly festive with the addition of a Christmas sentiment and some pretty poinsettias, what gives this card the 'Luxury Touch' is the piece of acetate that Michele has added, it gives the card a lovely festive shine, which catches the light beautifully. Thank you so much Michele for such a lovely card XXX
I hope that you all remain Covid free and this pesky virus doesn't cause any of your Christmas plans to change, I think we all need and deserve a decent family Christmas after the last two years.
Love and warm hugs to all of you,
