Father Christmas always drops a present from his sleigh on Christmas eve ;) Arthur was very Happy with his transformer, he had put out some special sparkley food for the Reindeer earlier in the day, and made it into an x marks the spot, and amazingly thats where the presents were found. In the dark, Tony had to shine a torch on the garden from the balcony, which got Arthur very excited.
Xmas morning Tony was busy cooking a lovely big breakfast while the boys enjoyed hot choc and squirtey cream, mmm.
There have been some amazing sunrises over the xmas hols, beautiful colours..but very coooold!
When the frost cleared on xmas day it was amazingly warm in our garden, I managed to have a lovely couple of hours knitting and reading mags in the sun, it felt like a real holiday :)
Tony enjoyed the peace in the dining room, with sun streaming through the windows :)
New Years Eve went with a bang, we all watched fireworks going off across the Blackmore Vale it was lovely .
New Years Day I started as I mean to go on, I am aiming to do a 5 minute sketch or watercolour a day of the sky and landscape outside my window, and will aim to get back to painting and hold an exhibition before the end of the year, which will include photographs and large paintings.
