Old angel

A very Happy New Year to you all!

Sorry angel but she is very old, I’ve had her for years & she moves about to a different place every year. Today it’s the dining rooms turn.
We are having a proper roast dinner tonight with beef, Yorkshire pudding etc etc.
Our last full family meal before Brian & Lesley go home. I have the table laid & all veg done, meat & roast potatoes in the oven so just a lull now before everyone arrives. Only Lydia & Mathew missing as they are in Newcastle.

Three good things:
1. We lasted until after midnight last night!
2. Wonderful impressive firework display along the Thames.....we are still a major country ready to take on anything!
3. Beautiful walking weather....I went nowhere but Harry had a walk this afternoon.
she looks right at home there! I went for a long walk today as well...just about 10km...didn't want to go but once I started ot felt good

@huvesaker That’s what I always feel, once you get out it’s good. One of my original 365 friends has just come back on this site & he’s taken up the challenge of the www.walk1000miles.co.uk challenge. Sounds a lot but only 2.7 miles a day. Just a commitment every day for a year! You can send fir a free pack apparently!

The first dinner of the year is always special in my history! Cold ham, new potatoes from the garden, peas and salad. Very elegant corner of your lounge!

What a lovely cosy corner. The angel looks quite at home there.
The majority of our Christmas decorations are old and have lots of memories. Even our Christmas tree was found in the loft of our house at Cranwell in 1976 left by the previous occupants and it is still going strong. We had to make a new base for it because the original owners didn't leave the base too but it just adds to the character

@onewing That’s all part of it I agree Babs! Memories are very strong around this time of the year!

@maggiemae I believe it’s very warm on South Island today, Alex in Dunsandal says it’s 28c up there, sounds bliss! It’s actually really nice weather here at the moment so no grumbling! Your meal sounds perfect fir a summer New Years Day!

Your dining room corner looks like a Jackanory corner, tucked away in a proper wooden beamed old pub with an open fire - what a lovely relaxing atmosphere.

I love your rooms, they all look so warm and cosy! Happy New Year to you and the family :)

She glows as beautifully as your warm looking room. We have two old paper lanterns from our first year of marriage that are also just hanging together but still have pride of place.
