Following the dreadful weather last night of Gail force winds and lashing rain causing much disruption on the roads and railways this was the sky tonight.
Isn't it just magnificent. I love coming out into the garden as the sun is setting to see such wonderful colour.
It has been a hectic few days with family arriving and last minute shopping to be done. But that's it all shops are closed so what you don't have it's not worth worrying about. By now I hope you have all started your Christmas celebrations.
Tonight we kicked things off with a family meal that included a favourite of Steak & Ale Pie enjoyed by all.
With finishing on Friday for the holidays I have already started enjoying a bit of R & R so much so that I have managed to finish my latest book 'Christmas at the Ragdoll Orphanage' by Suzanne Lambert and you can as always find out what I thought about it here.
So here we are with less than 30 minutes till midnight, the meat has been collected from the butchers and the fresh veg from the farm shop. D has bought enough food to feed the village and the traditional triffle has been constructed by yours truly and Christmas Day will soon be upon us.
Therefore it just leaves me to say a big thank you to everyone who has visited my blog and for making feel so welcome over the last six months, I am certainly looking forward to making even more friends in blogland over the next 12 months.
Merry Christmas to you all however and wherever you will be celebrating the holiday season this year.
