Adieu But Not Goodbye.

Yesterday we decided, slightly heavy of heart, that it would be an appropriate time to say adieu to our Christmas decorations for another year…….end of christmas 2016It was emotional, but there again we always like to see the New Year all sorted, fresh, clean and shiny …… to venture on with the new.

So everything had to be put carefully away, and what we have seriously learned since we began bijoux living is that every single inch of space has to work for itself …….

….. and, it has to be said, that at times like this I really do miss the attic at The Castle when we used to just bung things up there without a second thought.

Darrell and Nigel helped amid much sighing, it only seems like yesterday that Darrell was doing his Hugh type flouncing, arranging and rearranging all our festive shelves ……. and now they are bare ……. Christmas has been and gone and 2016 is ebbing towards its finale, so I suggested a cheeky feast of leftover turkey, chips, peas, pickled onions and bread and butter and the mood was soon, once more, robustly buoyant!

An early finish but a good idea starting the New Year all, erm, new.

Although it's lovely to put the Christmas decorations out, I quite like it when they go away and everything is tidy & neat.

It can get a little tiring having the chrimbo decs up and it's great when they come down again. Mine never got as far as out of the attic as hubby has been in hospital and I didn't have the time or the energy to bother with Christmas this year.

Always a little sad when the party is over and it is time to go. January can be dull,but in this case, it is going forward to new adventures with good times beckoning ... upcoming will be the beautiful riverside in the springtime; but the next celebration is Valentine's Day!....Loving wishes, Dianne
