Perfect Christmas at home

A few days feeling unwell and my beloved MacBook in techy ICU so by Christmas Eve I was ready to relax and we began with a perfect Christmas Eve…. tea and mince pie with Frank and Kate, then some festive drinks and fun with Sally, Campbell, Jamie and Jess and their other guests. Later a walk through the snow with Hector to the pub.
I got up early Christmas morning to go to the river which is now an ice flow (freaky – and I suspect a VERY rare event) to take some piccies and then home to open our pressies. H had bought some some great stuff – all on a bit of a theme of relaxtion. A shaitsu massager for my creaky neck, vibrating fluffy slipper (!), aromatherapy eye covers, and plenty more besides. He liked his pressies too, especially amused by the ‘pie tokens’! Lunch was a very leisurely affair, no fuss, just a HUGE joint of beef.
Some pics of the day…

Boxing Day – no activity except watching the birds in the garden, the TV and the overstocked larder!
