A very merry Christmas.
A Merry Christmas to one and all from everyone here at The Rickety Old Farmhouse.
So far this morning we've been on a tour of the village to look at the decorations put up by the mayors secretary.
Last years decorating style was minimalist. This year it's minimalism in extremis. Two strands of tinsel on the box trees by the war memorial, four baubles on a cypress tree in front of the church and a small tree and a length of red tinsel on the town hall terrace.
The bakers is packed and Buche de Noel are flying out of the display cabinet. The PONs get the curly ends from a Christmas croissant.
Sophie has been checked by the vet. The growth on the side of her muzzle is a wart. This is a great Christmas present.
