Our guests have Been and Gone….

…..just like our Christmas dinner Sad smile

Dinner Before Dinner After

I always find this time of year of hard, you have the build up to Christmas, the excitement of welcoming visitors, Christmas Day and New Year fun and then all to quickly they are gone and the decs are taken down. But we had the most fantastic time with ours sons Darrel and Josh, walking, playing games, chilling and eating way too much. On Christmas Eve we took them to Niort to visit the Christmas market but in Darrel’s words, he was underwhelmed, no atmosphere at all. Christmas markets locally have always disappointed, so if anyone has any recommendations, please let me know. Quality time with them was just the perfect Christmas present and one to be cherished. On the 29th Gary and Carole arrived to spend New Year with us but on the 30th the boys departed to spend New Year with their friends. New Years Eve was spent at our friends house with their nutty French friends where we enjoyed a fantastic meal, we ate pudding at 3.30am and then fell into bed at 5am. Then the following day we went back again to eat all the leftovers and have more giggles. Hope your Christmas and New Year celebrations were as good as ours. Happy 2016 to you all.

Cheers

  3. It's great to see empty plates, I bet they ate you out of house and home. It will not be long before you see them all again. And you do have your birthday and holiday to look forward to. It will all go very fast. Xx

    1. Our food consumption wasn't too bad. We were stuffed after Christmas dinner so didn't eat much on Boxing day. Hopefully we will be skiing soon but we need a good dump of snow first x

  4. Glad that you had such a great time. Wish we had stayed here; I would not have come home with the dreaded UK cough that has got me yet again!! Stay well Diane xx
