well, rounding off (i think) updates on Christmas, Andrew and Uncle Trevor very kindly sent on some exceptionally large pictures of their yuletide time! i have managed to reduce the size of the images so that they can be accomodated here for all to see!
first up, one of those "best of times, worst of times" images for me, as Andrew forwarded on the land that he could see as he gazed from (presumably) his bedroom window....
aaah, snow. how terrible to live in, but how wonderful it looks, making Christmas seem and feel exactly like it should do. whilst we all have tremendous fun in the sun here, i have still never quite got my head around the idea of celebrating Christmas is summer, at this time of year images from home do really make my heart long to be there once again.
well, i may not be there, but a number of our loved and dear ones are, and they surely had a heartwarming time in the midst of some rather chilly weather! here's Uncle Trevor, Gran and Christopher taking a pause, all interestingly pretending that Chris has not somehow grown antlers.....
and, where Trevour goes, so too does Ruby, it seems! looks like Ruby got an interesting present from Father Christmas, assuming that the penguin like item next to her was intended to be hers!
probably a gift from Colin and Angela, as a pattern or trend is developing. William got a penguin, Ruby got something penguin-looking like, and it seems that another trip was taken to the world of ornithology for a gift to themselves....
the mind boggles as to exactly what one is supposed to do with those pidgeons, but not quite as much as it boggles thinking about what the two of them will do with, or perhaps to, them. however, any further speculation in that respect could see me having to blank out a few words, and probably get punched too.
Andrew seems to have got a splendid gift too, in the form of a statute of the late, lamented figure they call The Stig. i wonder if it's a modern one that talks too?
well, thank you very much for the insights! we wish we could have been there with you to celebrate, perhaps as much as you wish you could have been with us to celebrate in some sun!
be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!
