Christmas Catch-Up

Hello. Are you easing back into reality? I don't think I am yet. This Christmas it's been lovely to spend more time with close family and friends and to catch-up with others we don't see very often. To see my teenage boys and younger members of the family having fun together. I've enjoyed early still mornings, glorious winter sunshine, good food (especially the goats cheese starter), too much chocolate and I've started dipping into a pile of interesting new books I've received. We even had a sprinkling of snow on Boxing day! Most of all I'm grateful for my dad being home. More of these slow days please. How's your Christmas been?


  1. Happy to stave off reality for a few more days. Happy New Year!

  2. Hello Claire I've only just come across your blog and was attracted to join by your list of simple pleasures. They are beautiful and after my own heart. Wishing you more of the best of simple pleasures for 2015.
