This evening we welcomed in the New Year quietly at home. At midnight we switched to BBC to watch the fireworks in London.
Happy New Year!

Yesterday snow was forecast for today but we were still rather surprised when we awake this morning to a heavy snowfall which began to settle. Luckily we got away quite lightly with the snow disappearing by lunchtime whilst other parts of the country had considerably more.
This afternoon we went to the cinema to watch the long awaited 'Star Wars - The Last Jedi' film. It was good!
Lara made sure we weren't late arriving at the cinema by displaying the film time on her new light box for us all to see.
We awoke this morning to find that Santa had left a huge pile of presents under the Christmas tree.
No time to open the presents in the morning, as Christmas dinner for nine needed to be prepared.
After dinner, we opened the pile of presents which had grown somewhat during the morning.
The rest of the day was spent eating, drinking, chatting, playing games and enjoying time in each others company.
