Christmas bauble

Merry Christmas!

Posting a photo of snow would feel very wrong this year. Instead, have a rainbow that I snapped from the train on the way back from our mini-break in London.

We never travel on Christmas eve to avoid the last minute holiday rush, so this was taken on Wednesday.

The journey back was fine and we caught a slightly earlier train than originally planned, thus giving us a little more time in Shrewsbury to get a snack. The buffet has changed from a Pumpkin to a Starbucks and I'm not entirely sure it's an improvement, but they had food and hot drinks, so that was OK.

Since then the weather has been wet and totally overcast. I am just sooooo fed up of this constant rain, but at least we had a bit of reasonable weather in London.

Brussels sprouts

52/52 for the group 2015 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's theme was: Y is for Yum or Yuck

A lot of people hate sprouts, but I actually find them quite yummy. These ones were destined to end up on our Christmas dinner plates, along with some carrots, peas, roast potatoes, roast parsnip and slices of roast beef.
