    1. He grew a beard so he could play father xmas last year, the twins were not impressed with santa at all but that is common after all he is a big hairy stranger so no beard this year.

    So glad you went to NZ and look forward to the photos when you can get them organised. Meanwhile, love your paintings as always - the one of the lighthouse could be our local one here - only there is not a bit of blue in sight; proper 50 shades of grey!!! YAM xx
