Happy New Year!

As you will know, we spent Xmas with our daughter L and her family in London
... I've put a few photos up on my Flickr site taken during our stay there,
and since ... as we all decamped to Nottingham last Tuesday. With young
children around, we decided to take down our Xmas tree down fairly quickly
as it was festooned with lots of glass baubles, so the house is looking less
Xmassy now.

We've got bigger family gatherings coming up ... one in Leicester for Mrs C's
side of the family, and one at our house (next Monday), to which we've invited
all our daughters, and their partners and children (plus one of our nieces and
her son). We'll keep the food for this fairly simple ... lots of jacket
potatoes, with various toppings and a green salad ... mmm... I'm feeling
hungry just thinking about the food.

We haven't watched much telly over Xmas, partly because most of the good
films on were ones we'd already seen, and partly to fit in with what our
guests wanted to watch (mainly news and comedy). We did re-watch part of the
Beatrix Potter movie, which has some gorgeous views of the Lake District in
it .... we didn't see any rain, however, in the part we saw (which is odd
considering it's the wettest part of England)... just glorious sunshine.

Happy New Year!
