Inspite of the illness that has dogged the household recently, the winter solstice was simply lovely.
Waking up to a faint dusting of snow set the scene and brought about a childish glee :-) C's mum had called as well to say that her boss had told her to stay home; the roads were trecherous, some places were cut off completely. I suspect ice rather than snow as there wasn't even enough to form a snow ball.
A joyful day with a combination of decorating the tree, baking buscuits and decorating some for the tree, creating a delicious, yet simply Yule feast of vegetable chilli and homemade chiabatta bread. The evening meal eaten by candle light and then later I found The Muppets Christmas Carol on surf the channel and settled down with Rye to watch that. Later still, I finished the painting for Shell, I am pretty pleased with it. I could of course tinker more alas time is running out.
