Happy New Year

I've been away, visiting family and then recovering from a pulled muscle in my back (too much granddaughter chasing and over indulgence), hence the lack of posts.

I hope you all had a great Christmas, and that 2017 will be a good year for you, I'm determined to make the effort to have a better year than last.

Here are a few pictures from the last week, too much happened to document it all in this post but I enjoyed every minute, apart from the six-hour drive home with my back in spasm and every gear change sending pain up my leg!

We had our turkey on Christmas eve, with pigs in blankets of course!

On Christmas day we went to the beach for a mince pie and mulled wine,

there were swimmers!

Then it was off to see the daughters and grandchildren,


and out for an afternoon tea.

Now we are home and it seems like it was a long while ago, we will be back together soon for Maeve's birthday.

Incidentally; the January newsletter for my alter-ego; Richard Dee, is now available. If you want to subscribe, click on this link. This month, you'll also receive a free gift.
