We had a couple of people to stay with us over the New Year period. It was the first time either of us had prepared and catered for this time of the year. We usually go to parents houses and visit friends therefore not having to lift a finger.
But this year was different. We had a lovely meal and played Scrabble, watched the fireworks on the TV and also some far away in the distance over the loch while drinking a glass of bubbly. Perfect.
The Father Christmas and his reindeer in the sleigh was a gift from a neighbour many years ago. The decorated log and candle was a gift from a new neighbour just days ago.
2011 has officially begun!
