Peter and I would like to take this opportunity to wish all our guests – old and new-  a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.

We have had a busy year here at Pooh Hall but luckily when the snow came last week we were on our own! Sunday morning was spent with the snow shovels clearing the track and Peter trudged down the lane and gritted the road only to have the snow plough flatten everything over the area that he had just done!! Ah well at least it made a start. Monday morning was a repeat performance but the snow in the centre of the track made it impossible for me to get my little car out. Peter was able to ferry us back and forth in the 4×4 so all was not lost and it was a magical walk in the woods with the dogs. There is something special about being the first to walk on pristine snow!!. The dogs loved it and were keen to charge about especially Vita.

We are now snow free and looking forward to decorating the cottages for our Christmas and New Year guests. Lots of holly, baubles and Christmas trees help create a happy atmosphere and we can all celebrate a special time of year.

Looking forwards to January ( lots of birthdays including Peter’s) it is nice to take stock of the past year and plan for the next. We have already achieved a couple of small things that we had planned for 2018. Keeper’s cottage has had a TV upgrade and The Gatehouse now has a TV in the bedroom.

Some of my plants haven’t survived the snow so it will be fun to plan and replant some of the borders. Note to self – do not waste time in the winter get out those catalogues!!
