Christmas Day was just lovely.
Lloyd and I woke up and had a wee glass of champagne then a breakfast of home made eggs benedict - this is a bit of a tradition.
After that it was pressie opening time. Santa was very good to us!
Lloyd got a gun of all things - a farm gun, though. Sadly our rabbit population has reached shocking numbers, so rabbit pie will be on the menu rather a lot this year! I still sneakily save baby rabbits if the cats are chasing them. I gather them up and hide them in the oak tree, but I do whisper to them that their days are numbered...
I got a huge surprise when I opened my present - a new camera! Lloyd had managed to get this without me having an inkling! I've been reading the manual and trying it out with just the wee ordinary lens on it - want to learn a bit before I start using all my good lenses! It is amazing! I am very lucky. Thank you Lloydy xx
In the afternoon of Christmas Day, we headed over to Dan's house. He had his family there, so it was lovely of him to include us in their day. We had the best time and laughed and laughed!
For the last couple of days I've tried to have a rest! Lots of photos have been taken!
This is one of my favourites. Banana was washing himself. If you look closely you can see his wee face between his front legs!
And here's presents we were given by very talented friends!
Isla is a ceramicist and is an incredibly talented artist. She gave us these stunning bowls. And Ness can turn her hand to anything and made Lloyd this lamp out of a piece of driftwood that washed ashore at the beach!!
I treated myself to these alphabet stamps. I've become rather addicted to pinterest and saw that someone had used these stamps to make garden markers - all you need are these and some clay... I'll keep you posted on how I get on (clay was ordered this morning)
So, I hope you all had as lovely a Christmas as we did, and that you ate too much, spent time with loved ones and laughed a lot.
