Some Christmas Spirit

Well it's that time of year again when we all get stressed and worry about the amount of money that we haven't got and whether the Co op will have just what we MUST have to make our Christmas perfect. Actually I like this time of year, I know you can't believe it 'cause I'm usually moaning about it, because we have quite a few simple get togethers just to spend time with friends and family. Last weekend was the widow's lunch and carol service at the Masonic Lodge, a great occasion when we remember past friends and enjoy a little sing song and a lunch that is supplied by each of us bringing a contribution to the feast.
Last night was the Carol Service in the Methodist Chapel which is always a well attended family gathering, tonight is the Rotary Club Christmas do at the Golf Club and on Saturday night is the Midnight Mass which for me is the real start of Christmas. In this ever changing world where the Co op will be displaying Easter Eggs in 10 days time it is nice to take stock and make the most of the simple pleasures with family and friends. I thought I would share with you the view from our back gate, how lucky we are.  tg
