Christmas pretty much summed up the year, we were battered by the gales and took some damage but we are still clinging on. Luckily we are on high ground so we escaped the flooding, but our thoughts and prayers are with those who weren’t so lucky and faced Christmas in the dark and cold without power or worse still to be evacuated thanks to flooding. It really puts things into perspective, when the biggest thoughts in your head at this time of the year are; ‘Will we keep the power on and how much damage will we get?
The gales are still going at the moment and more on the way for Monday, so we are holding tight and hoping for the best. Hoping you all had a wonderful Christmas and that the weather was kind to you or alternatively that you could stay safe and warm in your alternative abodes.
We had a very quiet Christmas just DH & I, the original plan of going to MIL on Christmas day went out the window as we have both had stinkers of colds and we didn’t want to inflict them on the others. Luckily DH sisters kids were bug free and were able to spend the day with her.
Lets all pray that 2014 will be kinder than this year.
