Happy Christmas ... a Christmas morning walk in Melksham

A Happy Christmas, everyone. Now that we've moved on from the "Children" to the "Grand Children" phase of life, Christmas has moved on too. Our own kids are playing hopscotch from one set of Grand-s and in-Laws to the next and juggling with the political decisions of who to join for Christmas lunch, and who to go to on Boxing Day.

Billy and Gypsy on front door stepBut now we're back home for much of the day - here for friends to come round and see us. Grandad will be over for Lunch, Lisa around all day, Dad will be on checkins this afternoon (and if we're very good he may take us "with"
