Happy Winter Solstice to you all!
Just in case you hadn't noticed, today was the shortest day, that was it - zip - gone!
All hail the new year.
So, happy :) sad:( or too stressed to care, how are you feeling? Is it true to say that the shortest day is also the busiest given the very nature of this seasonal silliness? (apologies for all who may take christmas very seriously, no offence meant).
Usually the female in the house *groans*, who has all the extra work eh?
These days I don't have much of the stress since, being an oldie I've given up on many seasonal traditions. Re-invented things to suit myself (and him indoors). Give gifts to the very old (our parents) and the very young (our grandchildren) take a walk up a hill on christmas day, somewhere wild and wonderful with a bit of luck:)
Back to a cosy house, a 'feast' of jacket potato and bean casserole, maybe a bit of pud.
On any other day I'm most likely to be seen......

|Castlerigg Neolithic Stone Circle|
hanging out with the birds.....
|Saltburn's historic Victorian Pier and Industrial Teesport|
sharing a cup of afternoon tea with little friends

|"gosh Tigger", says Piglet, "why do you always look so surprised?"|
and maybe getting a few unfinished projects ......
