It felt like a mini holiday...we were totally spoilt and looked after! We helped Grandma put up the Christmas tree, did plenty of crafting with Grandma (she is a pure genius and really talented with all things homespun...she is the one who sparked of my slight obsession!), then when the little man was tucked up in bed we made up some mulled wine, lit the log fire, got into our jimjams and got cosy on the sofa and enjoyed a movie. Total bliss!
|This angel has been brought out every year for the past 28. I made her in Sister Philomena's class at St .Cuthberts Primary School when I was 6 years old. Apart from having to stick her head on again every year, she has stood the test of time!!|
Mum and Dad gave me a lond needed lie in and I was welcomed downstairs with a full cooked breakfast...then we got togged up to go to the village Christmas Market. When I say 'village christmas market' it sounds a bit amateur, but the Hovingham Village Market has been going for about a year now, once a month and it not only has stamina, but also such a draw. They have 30 plus stalls of of really fabulous local produce. It makes me realise how truely lucky we are, in this area, to have so many good independant producers on the doorstep.

I know I only had 24 hours away from home, but I did miss my gorgeous husband...and I am now snuggeld up to him on the sofa, joined by two of our dogs and a large glass of wine in hand. Love it !!
Merry Christmas everyone xxxxx
