Christmas Wishes

The photograph of the cute reindeer was taken in Carlisle town centre during one of our day trips out. She was stocking up for her busy schedule.


Apparently all Santa's reindeer are female as the males lose their antlers in winter but the females keep theirs so they can protect their young.

Best wishes for a Happy Christmas to all the visitors to both our blogs - thanks for your encouragement and support. I hope you manage to stick with us in 2013.
Sue and Martyn

    1. Very good Rooko. We could certainly do with far less of that sort of rain.

    1. I don't think sprouts will be on the menu., Elaine. Martyn is confined to cold food only until the end of December. I don't fancy cold sprouts.

  5. Happy Christmas/Yuletide and New Year. Don't worry I will still be here next year, lets hope it is a better growing year than this one was. I am going to get the rest of the lpot dug over soon and hopefully will get more in than I did this year. I have lots of seed on order (free thanks to Spaldings) and I also got some for xmas. I also have quite a bit saved up towards a shed, all I have to do is figure out how to get one to the plot.

    1. And we you too, Mal. Wonder what sort of bread you'll come up with next?
      Have you a special Christmas loaf e.g. Panetonne or will it be a yule log with a twist?

    2. It's "Kulich" - A Russian panetonne style bread!

    3. Eeek! Just caught up on your news. Hope some semblance of normality as returned by now, and Martyn is restored to good health. You will be needing a holiday after this Christmas!

    4. We're at a fingers crossed and hope for the best stage, Mal. But we've been here twice before during last week.

  7. Santa Claus's reindeer all female?! That can't be right. You'll be telling me next that it should be Sandra Claus, not Santa...
    Anyway, I trust you have a happy and restful Christmas, and don't get flooded out or anything terrible. I look forward to following your hugely informative blog next year. Many thanks too for your enthusiastic commenting on my blog.
