Christmas Eve 2014 Pilmuir Steadings Banchory Scotland

I have been asked many times if I am spending Christmas alone?? Well physically yes I am alone, but I have Family and friends in my heart and on my mind. I think of the Great Family Christmases I have had and am content. As for Christmas Dinner, I am having a special dinner  in memory of those men and women who 70 years ago were fighting in order that we could be free from a Dictatorial Mad Man Adolf Hitler. There was not a lot of Turkey available for the army of WW2. But Spam was abundant in honour and in Thanks I will have a simple Christmas meal

Christmas has arrived  Hallelujah, I opened my presents from K Man and Lily Z.  what a great package. Pistachio nuts , treats and a chew for Sasha, a selection of Lottery tickets  (Boo hoo only a one dollar win). Hot chocolate, a Gabriola Garlic Grinder full mmmmm smells lovely. The biggest surprise is a home made Gingerbread snowman. created, baked and decorated by the K man.. Yum Yum. Home made cards made my day.

Then it was off to feed and the animals and also to change bedding.

 

It sure looked like a White Christmas but it was only ground frost
