Welcome 2017

Welcome 2017

Christmas and New year was our first in the new cottage. Our Youngest is back until new term February begins for him in Prague, his brother and girlfriend came to stay over the christmas and eldest boy and his family arrived 27th to spend New years with us. Our local lad and daughter in law were over lots, as we all shared in food and games, long walks and each others company.

It all began with lots of cooking.

My thoughts for the New Year are to live simply and lay down good traditions so that our children and their children will have strong memories and a sense of who they are, where they came from and have an identity of belonging to something more than selves.
