We had the quiet Christmas we planned and enjoyed every moment. We had the added bonus of been able to speak/see family with the amazing technology that we have today. Neighbours popped by to say hello...
...and just as quickly left, strolling down the road together to the next cottage.
We did have human visitors too over the Christmas period, neighbours popping in with Christmas fayre which was a joy. We feel thankful that we have been accepted into this wonderful community and this has reinforced our decision that this is our forever home. No white Christmas here, the weather was very mild. However, we have had a few sightings of snow/sleet/hail but it only lasts a few moments. Food has been plentiful but I am happy to say there has been no waste and we didn't get fed up with the leftovers.
Hope your Christmas went to plan and that you had the Christmas that you had anticipated? Once again we have no real plans for New Year and intend to celebrate quietly.
See you soon.
