winter walk and happy new year

A winter walk on a bright frosty morning is one of my most favourite things. Wrapped up snug against the chill, two pairs of socks and thermals for good measure. 

We were pleased to have some Boxing Day snow. Not enough to cause problems travelling but just enough for the little ones to have some fun. Excited squeals rang out as they threw snowballs and cracked the ice on puddles. Playing chase through the little trees in the forest. 

Though bitterly cold, the sun shone sending dappled light through the trees. After a play on the rope swings, it was back to the car for a warming flask of tea. Lovely winter downtime.

Tonight, we will be ringing in the New Year at home, most probably with Jools Holland and a glass of wine. Tomorrow, a roast dinner at home with my parents in law for company. I've baked Mary Berry's chocolate celebration cake for dessert. A fitting start to the new year.

Wishing you all a happy and healthy 2015 full of adventure, good times and fun. Hope you all have a wonderful New Year.

  9. Hi Bee, you are living proof that is possible to look non-repulsive and indeed very pretty whilst sporting a hat ANDY glasses. This continues to evade me. Hatless it is.
    Seriously though, great pictures, especially hiding in the Christmas trees :)
