He's A Lumberjack...


Actually he isn't so much a lumberjack as a 'tree maintenance person' and he has come to our neighbours' house opposite, to fit the Christmas Lights in their tree. It will look lovely tonight, when it is illuminated. I just couldn't resist taking a picture of him silhouetted against the afternoon sky!

Every year Peter and Pat host an Open Air Carol Singing Event on the grass outside their home, in aid of a local charity - and the atmosphere is great. A local folk band plays the music, another neighbour, Camille, provides refreshments, and Bob is the compere and provides PA [and Carol Sheets]

It is really great to be involved in a neighbourhood activity like this [not one of the many Christmas Events that's arranged by the church] and I appreciate the time, effort and money that P&P put into organising it each December.

This Sunday is the first Sunday in Advent, and normally I would be thinking about getting our lights and decorations down from the loft - but the window replacement and carpet cleaning planned for early next week means the festive stuff will have to wait a bit!


  1. Cottonreel called, happy Advent

  2. I've been busy holding our new grandbaby, but I am on a mission to find the a Advent wreath tomorrow! Lights are shining around here, too!

  3. Hope all goes well with window replacement - don't freeze when the glass is out and make sure they use their own vacuum cleaner toclear up afterwards...
