A very lovely time this Christmas but a strange one. It's the time of year that you really feel the absence of family members you didn't get to share another Christmas dinner. We had lunch with Clare's husband's family and many thanks to them for sharing their Christmas with us.
Our grandchildren Gwen and Scarlett had loads of presents so they must have been very good girls. Scarlett's been having fun with a box of tissues as her mum's picture on facebook shows.......much more fun than all her new toys.
Eric's sister Paula had a new arrival just before Christmas of the four legged variety. He's a very cute Yorkie- Chihuahua cross and so tiny, she named him Rockie. The baby gate doesn't keep him in the kitchen, he can fit through the bars, but he has his own special cage which he quite happily goes into and curls up on his bed and goes to sleep.

There's another new arrival due on the 8th of January, again it's the four legged variety. Gwen is pictured here happily holding the new pup at the breeder's house. We met the puppy's mum too. She's a Sprocker which is a cross between a Springer and Cocker spaniel called Annie at the moment but that may change. I am sure she'll bring lots of fun.
