Me And My Kin*

Feeling so blessed to have had a real family Christmas – many of my friends are far from their parents/children right now. On Christmas Eve we went for a walk in Melton Mowbray. Steph got stuck up a tree


Bob and Liz were quick to rescue her!


Melton Mowbray appears to exist in another time zone, if the sign by the pub is to be believed.


The stockings were left by the mantel with care!


Christmas morning we opened the stockings.


Bob and I received wonderful tee-shirts!DSCF2990

Church was great – here are a crowd of people litter picking! [there’s a baby in there somewhere!]


We came home and opened our remaining presents [thank you everybody for the lovely gifts]

Bob [the Chief Gravy-meister] and the girls produced a fabulous lunch


Before lunch, we decided on a Proper Family Photo [the stars are hanging from the curtain rail – not attached to our heads!]

So very proud of my beautiful daughters and lovely man!

Christmas 2011

**I have spent weeks trying to teach children at school to sing “We Wish You A Merry Christmas” properly!

    Happy Boxing Day! I wish we had Boxing Day!

  2. A beautiful family photo!
    I hope Steph didn't damage her beautiful coat!
