Well that is Christmas over. Today I took the few decorations down (I had had no desire to decorate and only did minimally for the sake of my great grandchildren). I also sat down and read through the large number of cards I had received - that gave me pleasure to renew many contacts with friends far and wide.
This afternoon a friend invited three of us to tea and we had a lovely afternoon of laughter together. That is what friends are for.
The weather here is North Yorkshire is glorious. The sun has shone throughout the day after a sharp frost this morning, and by the time we came home there was a sharp frost again and the moon was already in the sky. There is no snow and I understand that the forecast is for it to get a little bit warmer towards the week-end, so hopefully we have missed the snow here again.
For the first time for many years I have decided that I shall no longer see in the New Year - sad but really I need to cast off some memories and this is one of them. But as it draws near I wish all of my blogging friends a very happy 2018.
