Xmas 2010

 

Second year in a row we spent Xmas at the cottage: rather unusual for us! On this occasion we had Sabrina and Remco staying with us, and for Xmas day itself we also had Leda and Michelle.

Far too studious a Xmas, if you ask me…

That’s more like it: what better than a new dressing-gown and a Banks’y

Thanks to Julie’s parents, Lance enjoys his new power-tool. Something Julie found quite frightening…

 

A Happy and Prosperous New Year to y’all from Julie and Lance.
