{Christmas 2015}


Did you have a merry Christmas? Mine was fantastic! We were at my Dad's cousins in Essex and it was filled with such merriment and joy! Highlights included fantastic meals, picking up the turkey from the local farm, an all boys carol service and midnight mass in the medieval cathedral, a Boxing Day Meet in Matching Green, and a traditional panto! 
The pictures really say it all!

{First Christmas Party in Chota House}

Over the weekend I hosted my first Christmas party in the new house. It was fun to get the house decorated and amazing to see how much has been done on it since I moved in August (for early renovation pictures click here)
Below are a few pictures, and there will be more to come on renovations in the new year!

Happy Christmas!
