The best Christmas present

Posted: 07/12/2013 at 10:43

Absolutely no question about it - a toy farm my Pa had made for me - it was absolutely beautifully made -  it had cow sheds  and pig styes with white painted walls and red roofs and a meadow with a green hedge all around it and a pond that shone like a mirror , and there were cows and sheep and pigs and goats and chickens and ducks and geese and a lady with a bowl of grain for the poultry and she had a headscarf and looked just like my Ma!  It was the best present in the world and I've got tears running down my face

Big pot of coffee here Panda

Good morning Pam   Afraid all our East Anglian coastal towns and villages are built on sand - and the North Sea is eating away at it all the time - this road used to go about a mile into the distance

Well, we moved to Suffolk when I was little, but it's an important part of the world to me - it's where Pa spent his boyhood and where all his stories come from, and where all my earliest memories are from

Good morning any/everyone 

Well, we won't expect to see Panda for a while 

What've we got planned for today then?  I really must get on with some pre-Christmas cooking - and I've not done the cards yet
