Please feel free to use any of our photo's but do let me know you have used them, thank you.
Today I am going to do a very short blog, this one is about Christmas at the "Story's" Teignmouth. Firstly, as a lot of you probably know we lost our adopted son Stephen about 6 weeks ago, so this will be the first time in 45 years that we will have spent Christmas on our own. We are used to having quiet festive holidays as my Daughter and her family are in the relief pub managers trade and flit all over the Country. My son has lived all over, including the Midlands and is now in the North. My grandson recently got his own bungalow so he obviously wants to Christen Christmas there with his mates. We are not great social beasts so it isn't any real problem for us, in fact in a way it will be nice to "do our own thing". No worry about set mealtimes or present opening, just a relaxing break. Back to the blog, after much deliberation we eventually decided to put up our "Lights" and decorations, this will almost certainly be our last year of doing this as we aint so young as we used to be. Our Treats this year are going to be a few social evenings in our local pub, probably Christmas eve Boxing night and new years eve.Anyway because its probably the last time for our lights we will share them with you all. Not much I can say about these except they are taken from different angles. This one and the next were before we did the bedroom window. Finally a Video of inside the front lounge, I think there is a peep of me sitting at the Computer with my music on. The tree is around 6ft tall and artificial but sue loves the job of dressing it, usually managing to down best part of a bottle of wine whilst doing this.
Joke of the day. Man driving down the road Woman driving up the same road. They pass each other. The woman yells out the window, "PIG." Man yells back "BITCH." Man rounds the next curve. Crashes into a huge pig in the middle of the road and dies.
Ps. My next blog will be in two parts and will be of the Babbacombe Model village in winter.
