We went to Swindon, which did not have snow. And it was a good thing we didn't go to Essex because they had lots more snow.
We had a lovely time. We ate well, watched Strictly Come Dancing final, drank champers, and enjoyed ourselves.
On the plus side as well was the fact that I got home in time to go and sing in the carol concert.
Every year we (the choir I am in) sing as part of a service of lessons and carols in Ewenny Priory church on the Sunday before Christmas. Because of the family get together I was going to miss it this year, however this was the silver lining as I went along to sing. It was nice because lots of people said how glad they were that I was there, which is very nice.
This is the church we sing in, which is a medieval stone church, and despite 2 jumpers and a coat, was more than a bit chilly!. However we had a good sing and it is a real start to Christmas as well.
