December greetings…

As the tortoise mountain stands guard over Wyndford, the other two tortoises were seen scurrying (yes, really, tortoises can scurry) as they were caught out last week.  We have had so many ‘nearly’ thunderstorms which came to nothing, that Perry and Charlotte got so blasé that when the real rain arrived in force they were as startled as the rest of us!!
Our dining room chairs are all looking smart in their new clothes, although there is one lucky chair that has a sprinkling of gold fairy dust…. It would appear that my painting skills while doing the Christmas decorations were not up to scratch…oops!
The sandstone  mountains resounded with the sound of the bagpipes this last week as barefoot, John serenaded us with Scotland the brave, Amazing 9Grace and others… with vocal accompaniment by Molly and Sprocket!  The jumping castle is being checked out, the pool lounger cushions are also newly covered – all we need is you!  There is still place available until the 15thDecember with the added bonus of two nights Stargazing from the 12  – 14th with the Faltemeiers.
Well, as we prepare to celebrate Christmas and to usher in the New Year with a ‘heave an a ho me matey’.. may we take this opportunity of saying to you all – Thank you for spending time with us this year, travel safe if you are on the move, enjoy family time… and if you are working through the season – a smile always makes it better!
Our Christmas treat winner is Chanel Brinkworth.  Congratulations, we look forward to welcoming you to Wyndford for your two night stay out of season.
On a personal note… thank you to all who have written or phoned regarding the passing of my Dad and to all who took time and stopped for a chat in the garden to reminisce with him.
