I Love This Time of Year

I adore this time of year.

Nativity Time

Today Taylor enjoyed taking part in his first nativity play, he was Joseph…..

(And yes, he is still referring to the Baby Jesus as Baby Cheeseless)

Santa came to visit!

Thirsk Rotary Club supports Santa doing the tour de Thirsk and Sowerby every year, fitting in as many streets as they can, knocking on doors, saying hello to thrilled boys and girls and giving out little chocolate treats. This year he has earned some extra brownie points as he told Taylor to be good and to make sure he kept his room tidy. Taylor raced upstairs and needless to say we have a very tidy little boy’s bedroom.

Food Wonderful Food

Kieran has been making 101 plans for all of the lovely baked goods he’ll be making and decorating this year for us all.

And I’m in a soup-making frenzy!


Looking Good, Even if I Do Say So Myself

The tree and the house looks and feels amazing.


My diary says I finish work for the year on Friday and I can’t tell you how much I am looking forward to a couple of weeks of proper relaxed festive family fun time.

Damn do I love this time of year!
