Christmas Day dawned sunny with wonderful blue skies, as you can see from these photographs. After breakfast we went outside and fed the ponies some festive carrots and apples.
Our drive was really icy, so Alexander had a grand time turning it into an ice slide.
Sadly they had to leave on Boxing Day, after lunch, as they were both working on Sunday. We loaded them up with food before they went. I hate to see them go, but hopefully we'll get down to visit them in a few weeks time.
I received some lovely presents, including loads of books to read and a couple of cookery books as well, so I can see some new recipes in our future. Christopher gave me a voucher to spend at Midsomer Quilting, so I'm having great fun planning what to spend it on. I'm thinking of treating myself to a June Tailor Shape Cut Ruler - have any of you tried it? What do you think of it?
