We woke to a hard frost this morning and beautiful clear skies: perfect for a walk in the woods. The low winter sun filtering through the trees and the mist was so atmospheric.
We saw several squirrels and, well, it doesn't look like finding food has been a problem! Either that or their coats are particularly thick at the moment! I can't tell you how great it was to be able to get outside into the fresh air - it was just what I needed.
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. We spent the day at my parents as always and went back the next day for the traditional Boxing Day buffet. Yesterday we braved the sales as we were in Manchester to see 'Little Shop of Horrors' at the theatre. We didn't buy much though and it was thankfully less busy than I expected. Tomorrow will be a quiet one before the build up to New Year. Chickpea is spending it with her boyfriend and I'm going to a party at some friends of my parents who only live a 10 minute walk away.
I'm hoping to be back to post the Scavenger Hunt on New Year's Eve but if not, Happy New Year! xx
