Sunday Stroll

Had a really lazy weekend, hubby clearing the loft and getting down Christmas lights. Apparently we are gong to have quite a show in our garden...That's why the fancy gazebo frame is still up! I hope the national grid can cope with the demand!!

We finished of the afternoon with a lovely,but chilly, walk with the two dogs. What a beautiful sunset, made me wish I was an artist.

Having had a terrible year to date....I'm hoping our luck will start to change for the better and that it begins with some good news this week. Watch this space!!!
