Christmas Eve and it was snowing unexpectedly this morning. The day started as always with a run up to the yard to do the horses, on the way home we passed a shooting party on Allendale Estate, the beaters looked nice and warm and the guns looked frozen. Social order restored!!!
Every Christmas Eve, The Children's Mother and the children meet up with their cousins and go to this isolated church, St Oswalds at the appropriately named Heavenfields, where the children's paternal Grandfather was Vicar some years ago. Both Grandparents are now buried here and the family get together and remember. While I am not directly involved and have no religious persuasions, it's moving to witness this gathering.
I hope that there is more snow next year...!
Happy Christmas everyone!!
