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.
We got the decorations ready, and right on time the Xmas cactus flowered!
We had a white Xmas, as did the rest of the British Isles!
Bacon and mushroom sarnies to start the day…
Julie models her new slippers!
Preparing the goose for its mammoth cooking time: 4.5-hours!
We had plenty of time to work-up an appetite…
Michelle and Leda plough-on ahead, leaving the men to tidy-up after them;-)
It was certainly a white Xmas!
After getting ourselves nice and hungry, it was time for the feast!
Remco likes his Xmas prezzy…
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
Boxing Day, and another walk, but not before watching a bit of curling on Lindores Loch…
Another snowy scene…
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.
