Something seasonal

On this occasion I’m going to apologise in advance – rather than  my more usual, belated excuses – for a lack of posts over the coming week or so. Of course you can no doubt guess  that it’s Christmas which is responsible for the temporary removal of my blogging hat, with one – or indeed several – of a more festive nature replacing it. Naturally at this time of year, it’s a chef’s hat which will be most frequently in use. I have a few ideas which should see us over the festive period and feel privileged to be able to use either home produced or locally sourced ingredients.

Last year, there was just the two of us celebrating that special day and we had a wonderful, relaxing time together, enjoying our first muscovy duck for dinner as I recall. Mmmmm….! This year is a whole different ball game however. Of course, dad is already here as a permanent Garybuie resident since September but this year, both of our sons and daughters-in-law are joining us. I guess that our unborn twin grandchildren will be kind of joining us too and I very much hope that they’ll be able to sense all the family’s happiness on the outside of their current cosy abode!

I thought I’d finish this brief blog with a few seasonal pictures from Garybuie, past and present, which may help you to feel festive…

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL (!) REGULAR VISTORS TO GARYBUIE’S BLOG AND TO THOSE TOO WHO JUST HAPPEN TO STUMBLE UPON IT – HOPEFULLY YOU’LL RETURN ONE DAY!

CHEERS!
