Belated Season's Greetings

Well our Xmas came and went here in the Northern Hemisphere - thanks to my sister for having us and all the lovely food. We were treated to a steam train ride on Xmas eve. D loved it. We had the traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings, carols playing in the background, a pretty Xmas tree in the corner and presents galore. No snow, but it was cold and very icy outside.

Unfortunately we came down with the "dreaded lurgee" and G was in quarantine Xmas day, I joined him on Boxing day. Not the greatest. All 3 of us are still suffering with colds as I write.

We are now up in Norwich, Norfolk. Many thanks to our dear friends P & V who are kindly letting us reside in their house while they are away for a few days. Today is a rest day, so nothing planned apart from a toddle down to the town later to get a few supplies. It is cold, about 3 degs C, but no snow or frost. Hoping to get out further north for a trip tomorrow.
