A Short Visit on the Shortest Day

Well I never did get to Carols in the Barn, as I wasn`t well enough to go. I had the sickness bug. 
I was very sorry to have missed it because it is part of our Christmas tradition now.
I missed our trip to Brighton as well. 

Luckily I was well enough to spend a very lovely Christmas in Leicester with my nephew and his family.

Before we went I did make a very short visit to collect sprouts, leeks and parsnip.
The grass was squelching under my boots. The donkeys were under cover. The buzzards were calling.

The sprouts were quite small but very tasty.
The donkeys were expecting a Christmas treat but I had forgotten.
There was some weak sunshine but I felt no compunction to stay for long, despite the tasks that needed doing. 
The fence looked great. I have a lot of ideas for this fence for the new year. It is so neat.
 It is very clear where the new cobbing needs to go.
This needs doing soon. And I have some new robin nesting boxes to prevent the birds nesting in a plastic bag in 2020.
The bunnies were busy cuddling with the sun on their backs.
And one of my most unusual Christmas presents .....
..... beautiful.
My next blog entry will be the review of the year, believe it or not.
