Merry Christmas

This year we are in Spain for Christmas, enjoying the run-up to Christmas we have done tonnes of Christmassy things, trying to spend quality time with the boys, rather than spending loads of money on their Christmas gifts.

We live deep in the Spanish Campo, in the hills above Granada, but we are lucky enough that Grandma and Grandad live near to the coast and we are spending Christmas on the costa.  Today, on Christmas Eve, we have baked mince pies, gingerbread men and been to the beach.


What a wonderful way to celebrate Christmas, now there’s just time for put out a glass of milk, some yummy treats for Father Christmas and a carrot for Rudolph and wait for the magic to happen.

Happy Christmas everyone!

    So jealous! I suggested we go to the beach today but, as it was only 4C at the time, no one else shared my enthusiasm. Maybe tomorrow 🙂 Wishing you all a fab Christmas.

      Slightly warmer here then , at least 13° warmer and t-shirt weather. There is something a little special about wrapping up warm and it being frosty at Christmas, hope it’s the best Christmas day for you, Mark & Freya and you can make it to the beach!

      You are definitely braver than us. If a freezing cold sea was involved you’d have to count me out! Have a great New Year!
