Rain, Rain Go Away


Ok I am going to say this  mark my words  I prefer  SNOW   !!  to this damp dull  dark mucky sloppy wet rain with fog . It has been dull damp and rainy for days at least SNOW is bright and the sun comes out more often but this stuff BLAH ,   BOO  , YUCKY !!  The temps have been mild up to + 6C I can handle that but the actual rainy weather NOT !!  I just can get into the Christmas spirit with this YUCKY weather and gloom hanging around  and it maybe mild but it is that get right to the bone dampness that just cuts like a knife  .  Not very pleasant weather for getting out and taking photos either !

Christmas Brunch At Elm Hurst Inn & Spa


  Earlier today we went to a lovely Inn in the town of Ingersoll  about half an hours drive called the Elm Hurst Inn  &  Spa , a wonderful big old Victorian mansion  .  Some of our neighbours who are also our friends , Papa  , myself and his parents  get together every Christmas time for a meal , chat and a laugh .  Sometimes it is at each others homes for pot luck Christmas and sometimes it is at this wonderful Inn !

Papa’s Wood Shop


Well we have Christmas lights out side on the front of the house but this year Papa decided to decorate up the out side of his wood shop . The tree was my idea to put in his garden for the decoration it is one of our old fake trees ,  then he just went from that lol.

The Papa thought there was something missing from the tree , oh yeah a star or at least something with lights  so he made his own creation .
