Post by middleagedmadness » Thu Dec 24, 2020 7:17 am

Thanks Stu and Dee for keeping this place the way it is for another year

Nice one MaM, just beat me to it! This Place has been an important part of staying sane (?) in a bonkers year. Big thanks to Stu and Dee for keeping the wheels rolling.

Merry Christmas to all of you, as it's been a tough year I thought I share the nativity scene again, sewing machines aren't just for making bike luggage :lol:

Bones Festes tots from Cataluña. It's the first Christmas we've had in Spain, we decided in Nov that returning to the UK was not happening this year even if we did the quarantine thing. Instead we are having a "bubble" get together with a Swiss, an Italian and 2 Dutch neighbours, all of whom live in the valley. Gatherings are limited to 6 max so that's ok, can't find turkey anywhere so it's chicken and nut roast. There's a Zoom quiz with the kids in Sheffield tonight, not quite the same but hey ho. Doesn't feel quite right that Christmas Eve has been sunny and 14°
(Appropriate that Bones Festes is Happy Christmas in Catalan.)

Its been a big part of my coping mechanism this year.
