So anyway....enough of that!!
I will take you back in time a little as I did get the house decorated but not until a few days later than I first wanted and yes Sue....I did clean first...it's true you can't clean with all the decorations up...maybe this is a good point to remember next year lol!!
|The Hearth looking Christmasy.|
|Christmas fairies, trees and trains.|
|The tree all decorated and twinkly!.|
Boxing day dawned bright and crisp with snow reported for the evening by the met office and for once they were right and I was really happy that Tro got to experience his first snow as we didn't get any last winter. When I first let him out he looked up to the sky and a snowflake the size of my palm came down to land on his face which saw him running to hide under the carport...it was quite comical actually!!
Anyway with a little coaxing we managed to get him out into the open to experience the snow for real and he decided that it wasn't so bad after all.
|Trojan playing in the snow and eating it!!|
|The cold bothered us far more than Tro!!|
|And he's off!!|
|Quick check to make sure Mum's safe,|
|And we can carry on......|
|Now back we go.....|
|Ohhh??? What was that smell????|
|A little rest and a bit of a roll.|
|Then a good shake!!|
|And we're off again!|
|Do you see that big grin on my face?!?!|
|A quick refreshing chomp.|
|And a final pose|
(We had a nice week between Christmas and New year. We all had time off work so it was nice to stay home and spend time together, we had Shona for a couple of weeks which Trojan enjoyed, we met up with friends and played cards and had a few drinks and food, we went out for lunch a couple of times and did a lot of slobbing about...it's nice to just be sometime, don't you think??)
......So last night we stayed home and saw the New Year in quietly, I'm not one for going out New Years eve...it costs far too much and I don't like the trouble that often comes with the amount of alcohol people consume.
It was a lovely evening and I wouldn't change it for the world!! Of course the first day of 2015 typically dawned drab and grey with some rain and the snow all gone...the winds are high and it is just generally unpleasant outside...I say bring back the crisp air, blue skies and snow!!
We spent the day with family though and it has been a nice laid back and relaxed affair to end the holidays.
Not long now before normality hits and we are back to work...on the plus side though the winter solstice has passed so slowly the days will get longer and we are now drawing closer to better weather!
I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas's and New Years and a hope we all have great things happen for us in 2015!!
