Christmas Festivities

Christmas for me includes a wedding anniversary, just two days before Christmas Day. These flowers were sent via Interflora as ordered by my stepdaughter in Australia. Aren't they beautiful?
The wine tasted good, too, and the chocolates were divine.

These were the weather conditions

and this was what it was like on Christmas Day

as we drove to this hotel for lunch...

to see

A few couples go to this hotel every year and
it seems as if we know each other really well.

This was the novelty in my Christmas cracker.
I'll never work it out!

Dinner was fantastic and I wish I'd thought to get a shot or two,
but the puds were delicious so I snapped mine before I tucked in. It was sherry trifle like I've never tasted before.

Afterwards we drove home as the sun began to set


  1. That was some trifle, by the look of it! Yum.... :)

    A very Merry Christmas to you.
