Commissions finished, cooking done, presents wrapped, cards delivered and sent and all those other stressful things dealt with. Time to enjoy Christmas day. Early morning walk with the dogs. First some new brown jelly Witch's Butter or Tree ear fungus on a fallen tree:
Subtle and beautiful skies:
Then after a very light lunch in preparation for later Christmas dinner, another go. A beautiful day.
And then something ominous on the horizon which completely passed us by. I spoke to a friend four miles away as the crow flies and she said they were completely drenched. You could see the waves of sleety rain but not a drop touched us.
Lucky, except...........my main present was a pair of very expensive Berghaus waterproof trousers which didn't get a test run. They did this morning though and they're fantastic. No more sodden legs!
Happy slightly belated Christmas and thank you so much for all your support this year. xxx
