hard

Christmas times in all sorts of unexpected ways, and yes the artwork is a family members irreverent card to me!

Searing light and soul searching times….
Cooking lots for others and the gift of this.
The largest free-range turkey I’d seen: 7.5kg goodness. This saw multiple outings.
A great selection of books given-to-me, as ever to read and enjoy.
Not so much eating as grazing, after all the cooking.
Less preaching this Christmas.
Applying Noah’s first dose of aftershave!
Not so much reading initially….
My cooking achieved an average 8.5 rating;– though they were probably being kind!
“Don’t put any bourbons out, it creates expectation….!” these and many other classic lines from Call the Midwife, and other seasonal TV.
Reading, reflecting, trusting…
2 Chronicles 20 speaking deeply to both Julie and me.
Good roasted meats, of five different types over the holiday time.
Family card playing, despite my ‘hating playing cards!’
Sweet people time and unconditional love.
