This Weekend at the Duckpond

We have mostly been...

Sending - Christmas cards to four other lovely bloggers as part of Jenny's Christmas Card Swap. Plus sending lots of cards to friends and family all over the UK, lots going to North Wales and even one to the Isle of Harris up north in the Outer Hebrides.

Receiving - Scout Post! A Christmas tradition locally where you go and buy scout stamps from shops in town, post your letters into special postboxes and then a week later you find some little boy scouts stood on your doorstep clutching a selection of cards. It always feels really exciting when they arrive, very festive and also very yokel.

Celebrating - at two Christmas parties both on Saturday, one at 4pm and one at 8pm with two different sets of friends. We ended up eating food at both parties and felt pretty stuffed afterwards. This is Andrew's "as merry as we get" face.

Attending - the carol service at our local church in the high street. It's the same one we were married in 7 years ago and even though neither of us are that religious now, it's still a lovely service with the church filled with candles. After the service they always serve mince pies in the church hall and you can chat to lots of people you don't see that often. The mince pies are the main reason Andrew goes really; I don't like them but I still take one (and two and three) when they're handed round and then Andrew gets even more.

What did you get up to at the weekend? Everyone feeling pretty festive now?

  1. The stamps are a great idea. The church looks really cute. I now go to a 1960's church building so I don't have a lovely historic building to enjoy now!x
