and so, that was christmas

I had some posts lined up before Christmas about our decorations, handmade presents and whatnot, but as usual, I ran out of time, so I’ve put it all into one long festive post; the days spent in the woods gathering greenery and berries for our mantle, the (slightly messy and disasterous) gingerbread making in our warm kitchen listening to radio 4, decorating the tree… all of the usual festive wintery stuff. And a slightly shaky, fairly badly edited little video at the end – hurrah! I didn’t actually manage to take any photos on Christmas day, because I was too busy eating, reading or napping – I have to admit though, it was nice not to have a camera strapped to my hand the whole time!

Whatever you did, I hope you had a fabulous time, and enjoyed the solstice and festivities – I’ll probably be back once before New Years Eve with a post on resolutions and plans, unless I eat myself into a post-Christmas coma!

    I ran out of time with my festive posts too, your house looks so cosy and naturally festive! Got to love heading out for a good walk to blow the winter cobwebs away, it's looking beautiful out there!

      Ahh, thank you! We've had a pretty nice winter so far I reckon, lots of bright, cold and crisp days!

    Aghh, I had it set as private still – I'm utterly hopeless at this Youtube thing! Happy Christmas to you too, hope the next year brings plenty more collaborations!

    Gorgeous photos! We had a good time, I love the build up to Xmas but always find the day a bit of a let down, I feel the pressure to be happy and it puts me in a bad mood! x

    I love Daisy's face in that shot and loved your vid, I used that soundtrack for one of my winter videos last year I think, it's such a good winter song! x
