Ho, ho, ho

Happy Boxing Day holiday everyone :-)

We had a good Christmas Day here - much of the day was taken up with volunteering at our community's first every Christmas lunch - open to anyone that wanted to share a meal. It was a fun time with loads of volunteers and community members - and even a few passing tourists! The organisers had done a great job - the hall looked very festive with a tree, presents, and decorations and streamers made by the kids a the local primary school.  The kids had also done loads of drawings that had been laminated and were used as place mats which was a lovely touch.

We enjoyed turkey roast with veg and gravy, followed by Xmas pud, icecream, custard and strawberries. Then shortbread with tea/coffee. Many local businesses had donated items for the day, and community members had also donated small gifts for everyone that attended. There was also a pianist playing carols. I think we had about 80 people there - not bad for a community of around 3,000.
 After we'd finished cleaning up we went to mums for presents. Jerry bought me a fab bag...
or so I thought - it's actually a knitting bag!! Much more glamorous than the old shopping bag I've been using! The ball holder / yarn loop arrangements is VERY groovy - no more tangled wool!

Hi Margo
Thank you for your Christmas wishes.

I am getting a early start with my New Year wishes.
I hope 2011 will be a productive year in both your garden and your life.
I trust the weather will behave itself for you and not present too many (more) extremes!!

All the best
