A very Happy Christmas, or Happy Holiday to all of you reading this blog. Whatever your persuasion or religion I hope you will enjoy time off work and an opportunity to relax with family and friends.
Thirty two years ago we moved into our previous house on 22 December and I recall assembling a kitchen at 2am and the mad rush to have a house reasonably presentable for children aged six and nine. This Christmas it will be exactly a month since we moved into our current house and we are just about organized apart from decisions about what pictures to hang on the wall and where to place them.
Our daughter, bless her, is arriving to cook Christmas lunch for us, but whether my wife will be able to stay out of the kitchen is questionable. I expect we will all join in as in the well-known phrase: ‘all hands on deck’ but reminded of the other phrase – ‘too many cooks spoil the broth’. I’m sure a good meal we be had by all.
Finally thanks to all of you whose work has inspired me throughout the year and many thanks to all who visit, ‘like’, and comment on my blog entries. I feel privileged to be part of such a diverse community of photographers and I look forward to seeing more of all your work in 2016.
