Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! 
Sorry I've been off the blogs for the last week or so - I've been very busy in the workshop finishing presents - there's been some late night but it was all worth it when I saw their faces! They seemed pretty pleased with their new house! 
Yesterday was a mad day of putting it all up. I even sheeted all the windows on the one side of the house so they wouldn't see it. I managed to get it all finished before it got dark so we could put the children to bed together and leave out a can of beer and mince pies for father Christmas - it's magical at their age.
The windows sheeted up! Wonder what the neighbours thought!

Some of Christmas dinner fresh out of the ground.
Today has been a much more laid back affair, opening presents, watching kids films on TV, enjoying a beautiful Christmas dinner cooked by my gorgeous wife with six veg, five grown here, and then trying to stay awake on the sofa all afternoon! 
Hope everyone had the day they wanted and are surrounded by the ones they love.
Merry Christmas to you all!

  12. What a wonderful Christmas memory you have just given your lovely little girls. They will remember that all through their lives (I know because my Dad did something very similar with a dolls house he made for me and I remember it still with the knowledge of the love
    that went into every wall).

    It sounds like you had a lovely family Christmas, here's hoping the New Year brings lots more home made and home grown family times for you all.

    All the very best. xx

  13. Thanks everyone for your lovely messages!

  14. What was the 6th veg not grown here?

    1. Carrots, I didn't plant enough and the slugs have destroyed the ones I did have left in the soil. We had beetroot, parsnips, squash, sprouts and leeks but I could have also added celeriac and Jerusalem artichokes as theyre ready as well- we'd need bigger plates if we did those as well though!

  15. Nice looking play house. Glad you had a good holiday.

  16. Wow, I know that they loved it.This looks a very nice.So, I love everything.Merry Christmas everyone and happy lovely little girls.
    Happy X-Mass!

  17. If I don't get the chance
    Happy new year to you
