Christmas Day 2014…. Pilmuir Scotland

This is written in all truth on Boxing day, so I guess it should read Christmas Past?

Anyway here goes our Day at Pilmuir. Upon waking at 0800, we headed down stairs to see if Santa had been, Yup a parcel for me from the Payne Gang in Victoria yahoo. A stocking for the hounds, sorry Kitties but I will make up by giving you some shrimp as a treat. Animals first, we head out  to open the chickens, the ducks and feed the Llamas.

Now a happier  time Koan, Lily, Steph and Brad Skyped me.

I was so proud to see that the minute the kids opened the books I had sent them, they sat to read them. It is wonderful that Brad and Steph encourage reading.

Now my Supper a la 1944 or thereabouts.

Spam. Tatties, Sprouts, Mealie Pudding and HAGGIS.
