I am unlikely to be around too much over the next week or so. My sister is soon to arrive from Canada to look after our mother and allow me to have a short break in France. We are concerned that the house shouldn't be empty continuously for too long.
Two years ago I think it was, we had this very Christmassy scene which I do hope won't be repeated, pretty though it looks. Floods were followed by a heavy snowfall.
I hope you all have your wishes come true, and have a lovely and peaceful holiday.
