Now it was the run up to Christmas proper, and we were joined by our daughter for the holiday period, with plans to visit our son and his young family to share their Christmas festivities which were to be much more exciting than ours. This is their Christmas Eve fancy dress.
Our own Christmas Eve was spent with a baking session following recipes that friends had shared on Facebook.
Now that all that is over, and the tidying up is done, we now approach the exciting prospect of spending New Year's Eve in Las Vegas. We have never done that before, and it could turn out to be one of those love / hate adventures.
Come back soon to see how we got on!
