Christmas 2013

The Edinburgh family arrived, Granddaughter seasonally attired.

Presents were opened.

Wrapping was played with.

The quilt was used. Later, alas, Grandson threw up (as he had the previous evening). But not on the quilt. Get better soon, little N!

We haven't had the bad weather suffered by southern England. We're very sorry for all who've had a bad time because of winds and flooding.

(This was forecast in the usual London-centric BBC way: "Bad weather is sweeping over the United Kingdom! Wind and rain are forecast for areas from Cornwall to Kent!" In case you're not familiar with the geography of Britain, that's the small - though densely populated - slice of our island which is south of London.)

Happy Boxing Day!


  1. Awwww, what a perfect use of the Christmas quilt. I'm sorry little N wasn't feeling well -- I hope he's better today. It looks like he got a fun new tac-tah!!!

  2. "The wren the wren the king of all birds
    St. Stephen's Day was caught in the furze
    Up with the kettle and down with the pan
    Give us a penny to bury the wren!"

    raucous sing by the Wren Boys is what's being heard around Ireland this morning --- if it's still lie it was when I was growing up...

    Lovely pictures of happy little people and a cozy quilt.

  3. ...oh, yes, one should edit! "singing" and "like" in case there's any doubt!

  4. I hope little N is feeling better now.

    Hope you are safe and warm today. The storm seems to be heading your way!
