Merry Christmas / Nadolig Llawen / Joyeux Noel / Bon Nadal / Feliz Navidas.And festive wishes in any other language you care to mention!

We're just finishing up packing and stuff to head down to Whiltshire form Christmas / New Year. Can't promise I'll remeber to post in the mean time so I leave you with festive thought, best wisesh, and a lovely picture of our Christmas tree.
