This was the scene from my study window a couple of years ago. I am not sure what the predictions are for the Christmas period but I would be surprised if we had snow. I love snow at Christmas simply because the village looks lovely but when people have to make car journeys it all gets rather dangerous. I do not like driving in the snow, despite having a 4x4. Jon however is in his element and rises to the challenge.
A few Christmas cards have started to arrive but I am keeping them all until the weekend as it is the village carol service at the village pub, the Waterwheel and this is when I feel christmas has started and I get in the mood for the festivities. We will bring the tree down from the loft and hand a wreath on the gate. I also need to think about our own christmas cards......I always try to find a suitable picture and keep the design simple!
