Festive Fun & A Happy New Year!

Hope you have all had a fabulous Christmas.  We have had a lovely time and lots of laughs.  I will let the pictures speak for themselves.

Christmas tree with vintage decs, now depositing pine needles all over the place!

Pugs with new toys.

grain sacks full of presents.

I've got rather a lot of reading to do...........

A Hogfest!

A lovely time spent with my brother and his family.
Now the festivities are over we all feel a bit flat and it has all gone too quickly!  I hope you all had a wonderful time and have A Very Happy New Year from all of us here in Derbyshire.

    Hope your back is feeling a bit better.
