Sunday 18th December – Saturday 24th December 2016
I had a busy week this week: getting ready for Christmas, choosing new flooring, picking up new spectacles, taking the dogs for a hydro session, walking the dogs (of course!), going out to Kingston Lacy to photograph their Christmas lights, and finally cooking Christmas dinner for Dad.
But first on Sunday 18th we were out on the top of Upton Heath as usual.
I actually got Jez to look into the camera, rather than turn and walk away.
And although it’s technically rubbish, I got a great shot of Jez and Max together.
Moving on to Monday 19th and it was a bit of a grey day on Upton Heath.
I did get a nice photo of Max under the pine trees though.
In fact, most of the week was grey and damp. But sun was forecast on Thursday so I chose this day to go out to Kinston Lacy to see their Christmas lights – and even then it managed to rain on me! I loved the wooden reindeer they had all around the park – here in a small group.
The path was bordered with lights and trees were lit up.
The house and the Philae Obelisk looked lovely.
This is from the back of the house looking towards the Victorian Fernery.
And looking back the other way.
The side of the house was lit up too.
This was in the Victorian fernery.
And finally, the old Laundry (where Father Christmas was visiting) and the house.
There are more photos over on my Flickr stream if you care to look.
On Friday 23rd Dad came for Christmas lunch. Pat was supposed to come too, but she was too poorly, which was a shame. Here’s Dad before lunch.
Time for crackers.
And for lunch.
We had a capon (cockerel) at Dad’s request, with all the usual trimmings, followed by Christmas pudding.
And so onto Christmas Eve, when we went over to Upton Heath for our walk.
So it’s a belated Merry Christmas from Max…
…and from Jez.
