Boxing Day

Our Amaryllis is now in full flower
 It does have a 5th bud which has not opened
 A gift from Josh, 
It's fantastic to know our grandsons loves books
This one is a bit different
 Full of stories with 100 words, all created by local school children
Here is Josh's story
I'm a proud Nanna, what a great idea. 
So it's a sunny Boxing day morning, we will walk to Portchester Castle later, it will be nice to be out for a while. Coming back to a vegetable soup made with all the leftovers, it has become a tradition in this house and the promise later of cold turkey sandwiches, which I love.
Yesterday was a quiet day, just youngest daughter and her husband, we enjoyed a lovely Christmas dinner cooked as always by hubby. A lazy afternoon, chatting and watching Lion King (again)
2016 has taken far too many talented people, with the news of the death of George Michael last night, another star in our bright sky.


  1. What a beautiful flower, mine is still to come, I can't wait to see what colour it will be.

  2. Oh my goodness, that flower is beautiful. You must be so proud of Josh. Just the right gift for a grand parent. The first time I did boxing day was several years ago when visiting Vancouver BC at Christmas.
