11pm on 1.1.11

Despite embracing the New Year in A & E of Sick Children's with a stoically unlachrymose strawberry (not pictured), we have had an Enid Blytonially idyllic week together!

I think it was the "together" bit that was the best! That and the food, with which I was quite, quite pleased.

We were blessed to have had only one small and mercifully short encounter with the now exposed and inadequate infrastructure of the frozen North, and did genuinely enjoy making do and carrying on in our small little corner of Snowed In.

Misty, grey days (and Narnia, and a great book, and my dad's Best Curry in the World) have followed the thaw, but we're stepping quietly into 2011 here. Quietly hopeful, quietly faithful, quietly ecstatically happy. Together!

Happy New Year!

Hello Dear! I love the picture of the boys in the mist! You're cute, too! I missed One Day when I finished it. Missed Emma.
Your little pies are beautiful!

Happy New Year, Mags! We too have had a lovely week, and I've enjoyed the togetherness and the food (the food perhaps a bit too much). I hope 2011 is a wonderful year for you and your family.
