Getting rid of the turkey!

Cleadon Mill, South Shields

It’s Boxing Day, and I’m still a little tired.

Christmas Day was mostly spent out of the house visiting, we went to see my father and open gifts with him, then moved on to my wife’s parents where we did the same before settling down to a late, and rather heavy, lunch. Very traditional, roast turkey, ham, roast potatoes, sweetcorn, peas, roast parsnips, brussels sprouts, and cranberry sauce, followed by a large sherry and brandy trifle with fresh cream. I was crammed!

So late yesterday afternoon just as the sun was setting I took a stiff walk to the summit of Cleadon Hill, South Shields, once around the old mill, then headed back, before returning home with two tired children.

I will probably do something similar today.

Oh, by the way, it’s not snowing here (yet), it’s just a special effect until the 2nd. January, hope you all like it!

  1. Indeed it is very beautiful! Looks like you’re stuffed 😀 Hope you enjoying Boxing Day!

    Please forgive me if my visit to your blog in the coming week is slightly spasmodic, as I am home in Manila spending some precious time with the most important people in my life, and enjoying the warmth. Your visits to my blog/s, however, are much appreciated!

  6. Love the warm colours and especially like the coastline on the horizon disappearing into the distance (Robin Hood’s Bay in North Yorkshire at the furthest point I think?)
