There have been lots of things to do with the students, interviewing new ones and getting results out as the programmes finish.. and of course celebrations, awards and a cosy present for Poppy -
There were birthdays - Jaz in November and Molly had a sleepover when she turned 10 and we had everyone for dinner just before Xmas to celebrate Mum's just over a week ago.
I got to enjoy three Christmas celebrations....
The first had 17 of us at Mum and Dads - friends and travellers from many parts of the world. A fantastic day :)
Poppy and I spent Boxing day with Jaz, Mark, Phoebe, Molly, Caitlin and Rosie sporting designer eyebrows! Turkey and pavlova and yums....
and finally a lovely dinner with Jo, Nick, Holly, Leighton and Luka and their three new kittens!
and all along, plenty of time to appreciate the flowers Alex has created in the garden, work on the house, explore the the lake and hang out with friends.
I hope your Xmas was as fun -
It's been an interesting year, much better than 2013! I look forward to whatever 2015 brings and wish you all good health and happiness.
