So obviously I have not been eating healthily or losing weight over the past 3 days! This was our first Christmas at home and the first Christmas just the 4 of us for years. It has been quieter than we are used to but very lovely.
We have been lucky at home to have had power. Half our village and the neighbouring village still have none and have been without since Christmas Eve. I feel very lucky to have had the Christmas we have had and am so sorry for everyone in the South who has endured power cuts and flooding.
We escaped lightly. One fallen Scots Pine which cleverly wedged itself against another tree so caused no damage.Plus 2 large branches from 2 others. Again, no property damage. So we were lucky and feel sad for others who were not as fortunate.
Time to relax some more.
