Merry Christmas

Today’s guest picture is an adventurous squirrel making free with an athlete’s banana on the edge of a tennis court.  My sister Mary spotted it in Regent’s Park.

Apart from the weather, we had a perfect Christmas Day.  Everyone got exactly the presents that they wanted and Matilda and her father spent most of the day playing with theirs.

Mrs Tootlepedal conjured up a very satisfactory midday meal indeed and we all tucked in, eating with great gusto but without eating too much, a tricky thing to manage.

For the evening meal, we ate cold this and that but topped it off with a helping of Mrs Tootlepedal’s sublime sticky toffee pudding.

The day was delightful but the weather was frightful.  All the same,  Mrs Tootlepedal and I staggered out for a walk after lunch in the rain.

It was even less of a day for pictures than ever so I only took two.

River Esk

I thought they summed up our walk quite well.

We are promised a bit of sun tomorrow.

  1. Cheeky squirrel! It’s good to go for a walk on Christmas day – lousy weather here as well, but I felt better for getting outside.

  2. Merry Christmas! Very different from our day in Maine. We got over six inches of light fluffy snow. So beautiful!

  3. I think Bonnie Michelle has said it all for me, just add a personal ALL you wish yourselves!

    1. The river might have been more fun to photograph if it hadn’t been raining but then the river wouldn’t have been so high if it hadn’t been raining. Swings and roundabouts.

  4. Love a Christmas Day walk..they are special especially when you get such a lovely photo of a bridge and a reflection…very atmospheric.
