Merry Christmas everyone....well I guess now it is technically Boxing day, but I like to stretch the day out for a further week or so.
Yesterday was filled with absolute joy, presents, board games and a mammoth feast that I had worked on baking for a few days. But it definitely paid off, to see my lovely families faces and to spend quality time with them just chilling and being a bit lavish for once.
However, the day after Christmas, having been cooped up in a cosy warm room for 24 hours previously, we always take a big walk on Boxing day. This year we ventured up to the Moors and walked around the woods and a huge half-frozen lake. It was truly spectacular visually and walking off all of those roast potatoes and trifles, made stomping in streams and mud that bit more fun.
Dressed in black and white whilst picking up logs for the fire, I felt like a real old-fashioned Yule Tide lady. When you go to places like the Moors you kind of lose all sense of time and space- but in the most wonderful way.
I cannot wait to see in the New Year and embrace what it has to offer.
Lots of Love Always
