Life got busy in December as I work on a sheep farm at various times through the winter. This is a photo from a few years ago. I love it, and intend to write a lot about it one day. I've done some drafts...
Before Christmas I did my contribution to local community stuff. I painted one section of the scenery for the local panto. Apart from a very brief foray into this sort of thing several years ago I don't really have much experience at it. My task was a dusty Victorian attic. I was rather pleased with the result.
It looked even better when I'd painted cobwebs all over it, but I didn't get a photo of that.
I also made my first ever Christmas cake. I even made the marzipan with ground almonds. Much nicer than bought stuff, and dead easy. Then off we went a-visiting, cake in hand!
Pretty lights in a garden
..and lovely hand made decorations on a cousins Christmas tree
and finally, back home on new years day, we went to see a mummers play. Vince has never seen one, and he still hasn't as it was too crowded! I took this photo over the heads of the crowd. They are performing again next weekend, so we may yet get to see a mummers play!
