Here are a few photos in memory of the occasion.
The Christmas Eve walk up to Paxton's Tower, overlooking the flooding in the Towy Valley.
Home-made Arctic roll, with sieved home-made Raspberry Jam. Divine.
Home-made chocolate roulade - a Christmas tradition. Traditon has it that breakfast on Boxing Day is a slice of this with Raspberry couli . . .

My three lovely children, who - just this once - I shall name: Danny, Tamzin and Gabby. Next Christmas will be different as Danny is off to Australia for a year to work, with his best friend from school days, Joe, and then they are intent on travelling the Far East, so Christmas for them will be a BBQ on the beach!
I am hoping that my husband and I will be living in an easy-to-warm cottage somewhere in the Welsh Marches. We shall have to see what 2014 brings.
In the meantime, thank you for all being such good blogging friends and visitors.
