A few festive moments

Here we are on Boxing Day, feeling happy and festive if not entirely well – after a wonderful Christmas Day being looked after and fed and entertained, Brian came down with a cold overnight so we had to postpone the second half of our family get-togethers planned for today, which could now become more of a New Year’s Eve occasion instead once enough rest and recovery has been had.

So, today has been spent keeping warm with heaters on, catching up on sleep, eating a weird mixture of leftovers and gift food (sausages, twiglets, mince pies, cake and cheese) and looking at our presents and our photos.

Here are a few of those!

What could be more festive than a sparkly whale?

Some mince pies we made and enjoyed their irregular mix of shapes

We both have a Christmas cake, this is Lucy’s with her favourite 1980s re-painted characters
