Home Alone

So far my holidays are not turning out as planned...

Saturday - complete the last minute present and food shopping, check.

Sunday - My family come to visit. No check. They left home and got stuck in a wall of traffic so decided to turn round and go back home.

Monday - DH and I spend a rare day together just the two of us. No check. As we got the day together yesterday dh has gone out with friends for the day leaving me home alone.

Don't get me wrong I'm really not minding being home alone, it means that I get to spend Christmas Eve as I please. This means catching up on emails and blog reading and when I'm done here I will be stitching for the rest of the day :)

Yesterday we went for a lovely walk in the mist and frost which was beautiful.We live near the beautiful village of Lacock and are lucky enough to live 5 minutes walk from a wonderful path which takes you on a several miles walk to the village. We didn't go all the way to Lacock yesterday just a little way down the mist covered path.There were plenty of frosted leaves and branches to see along the way, very festive. (some of these images are better if you click for a full size picture). And spooky silhouettes when the sun tried to break through. Have I ever mentioned how much I love trees. I could spend hours sitting under a tree gazing up through it's leaves and branches. I don't know there is just something magical about trees. And my favourite scene of the walk a whole patch of frosted rushes by the river. I couldn't resist taking a picture of the real photographer in our family. You can see a few more pictures of things we saw on the walk in dh's Merry Christmas post here.

Yesterday evening was spent curled up on the sofa watching TV and playing with the cats. I have shared a few photos of Hector recently, but his brother Hugo is camera shy. I love this photo which I managed to get last night proving that yes I do have the privilege of sharing my home with not one but two white kitty angels. Of course Hector still insisted on being star of the show!

while not your original plan, I truly hope you can enjoy the space and time alone... I know those "found" days and moments are often some of my favorite in the holiday season...

I'll be there with you in spirit. Your cats are beautiful. Are they brothers?
