Photo a Day – Week Forty One and Forty Two

Back with some more photos. But first a word on two missing weeks! I decided not to share weeks thirty nine and forty. Many photos are included in December Daily and I felt as if I was duplicating and showing the same things over again so I have broken with tradition and decided to skip those two weeks.

So here we are with week forty one.

Helped Gav plant four step over apple trees. Does this count as ‘plant and orchard’ which is on my list…..

Dog walks with my sister.

One of a set of lovely wooden decorations that my Mum bought me years ago.

A sleepover and she made pancakes for breakfast.

Gav has a new game on the x-box. I was thinking about this photo. Sometimes, most times we ‘edit’ our lives to show them in the best light. That’s social media for ya! But sometimes I like to see the real life. The mess. This is an excellent example. Shoes by the door, cups and glasses, a plate with chocolate wrappers on it, a random pair of scissors! I love my house when it’s neat and tidy but that is not my day to day reality. Good to remember that.

And week forty two.

Christmas is not Christmas without Panettone. Gav bought me a teeny choc/orange one. Yum.

First self timer of the year. Or should I say first failed self timer of the year. Look at the pooch!

Here he is again.

Last of the Christmas cheese.

Blurry but wonderful. Here in the UK we tend to take out decorations down before twelfth night. I wanted to celebrate the season one last time so lit lots of candles and we ate dinner in here (we are very bad and usually eat on our knees!) It was a lovely evening and the photo sums it up perfectly.

 

A part finished wreath. Next year I’m starting earlier.

Light on terracotta pots.

And there goes another two weeks.
