Happy Christmas!

Happy Christmas everyone!

 Our Christmas tree this year.
 My favourite decoration - a tiny mouse with his hobby horse toy - bought many years ago from The Christmas Shop in Lechlade.
A lovely new decoration this year, courtesy of my Mum, who bought it at a craft fair in Edinburgh. It is a little handmade tartan teddy with green bow tie and button joints. So cute!
