Another month has flown by, and I had half of it as my Christmas holiday. It was so nice to have a decent amount of time off to recharge my batteries! I can’t believe I have just two months left of being in my 20s. Here are my photos from this month’s 365 Days of Happy challenge.
A beautiful rainbow at the airfield – the most impressive I’ve seen for ages!
Day 277 – part 2
We went into Warwick for a free meal courtesy of our Tesco Clubcard points, and parked near a friend’s house. Just as we were walking past his house he was coming out, so he invited us in for mulled wine. A serendipitous evening!
We flew to Gloucestershire Airport in the Robin. Our friend Jonny joined us in Wilhelm and we had lunch in the cafe there.
It was the Christmas party for Guide Dogs volunteers – a good chance to catch up with my friends from there!
We had a lovely evening watching The Nutcracker at the Royal Hippodrome in Birmingham. It was my first ballet and it was great to see Jonny conducting it (it was he who got us free tickets)!
Dinner in Cirencester with parents and in-laws.
A boring pic, but petrol below the pound! How exciting!
After-work baking – delicious banana bread.
The view from Tamworth Castle.
A beautiful and unseasonably warm day.
Shakespeare’s Birthplace Christmas Light Show 2015.
We attended a murder mystery evening at Ettington Park Hotel, where we got married.
We found the most Christmassy house in the neighbourhood!
Meeting our friend Nigel’s gorgeous new kittens.
Work officially over for 2015 and a glass of red as a reward!
Visiting Charlecote Park to see it decked out for a Victorian Christmas.
Relaxing at the spa – my Christmas present to myself.
Christmas Eve dog walk, in beautiful light.
A lovely surprise greeted me when we got home – a beautiful bouquet of flowers! They were very kindly sent to me by the ever-amazing Dan Barker.
Friends. Aren’t they cute?
Getting stuck into another brilliant Bill Bryson book, one of my Christmas presents from Lee.
My first time flying Wilhelm since August (I’ve been flying other things since then). Delighted to find I can still remember how to fly him!
A very lazy day of sleeping and reading.
A compilation of some of my favourite images from 2015 for the final day of the year. I also wrote about my highlights of 2015.
A bitter Easterly wind to start the year. We spent the day at the airfield shovelling gravel to make a path, which was some much-needed exercise after consuming so many calories over the last few days!
Reminiscing about our honeymoon by writing this post about our time in Santa Barbara, LA and Laguna Beach.
Afternoon tea at Billesley Manor Hotel with my friend Marie. This was the place Lee and I stayed at the night before our wedding, and our helicopter picked us up from this lawn – happy memories!
Driving along the north coast of France to Boulogne.
A rainy wander around Boulogne’s Old Town.
Breaking the long journey home from Canterbury with a brief stop in Windsor. I’ll put some more pics into another post soon.
I used the last day of my Christmas break to do some baking, trying out the brilliant food mixer Lee got me for Christmas. I made Red Velvet Cake, and I’ll put the recipe up soon.
