A coffee break was taken at elevenish when everyone was able to sample some of the gorgeous pastries at La Miranda and have photo opportunities with a baby goat. Then it was back to the museum for more work until lunchtime at No. 11, where the intricacies of weaving various numbers of strands where practised during coffee.

After a quick early morning Christmas Eve shop for those last minute presents, (in surprisingly quiet shops) we met old friends at The Unicorn before getting an early night.
On Xmas day, my sister excelled herself with an amazing feast for about 15 of us. Boxing day was at Penny's parents with her brother and his family.
A couple of days later and we were leaving for the train to Gatwick, only to find that the trains were cancelled. A call to our taxi re-routed him all the way to Gatwick. Thanks a bunch Great Western.
Let us all hope that 2014 brings better tidings to everyone.
