Maya was so excited that she was selected to be the Angel in the Christmas play. She actually had the only solo song of the show and did it so well. We were so proud of her. I will post the video link below too.

Continuing with the Christmas spirit we went to a medieval Christmas tree lighting at the Weald and Downland museum. the museum is fast becoming our favourite place to go. Everything there is historically accurate. the houses are all original buildings moved from other parts of the country and they offer all kinds of courses to learn archery, knitting (old style) etc etc etc.... At Christmas they have aChristmas market and then the tree lighting with Morris dancers etc... Fun Fun Fun
It has been a very festive season and I am playing photo catch up. on my birthday last November we went to Emsworth for a walk and a quiet lunch. It was a lovely day and just perfect spending it with the family quietly. It was my first birthday without my mom and that was extremely difficult. My amazing husband and two wonderful munchkins made it very special.
The town tree lighting was wonderful and really started off the festive season for us. There was carol singing and then the tree was lit and fireworks followed.

A catch up of pics from some of our goings on. We usually drop dad at dialysis on Saturdays and then explore the area around the hospital. Last week we went to the dockyard again. Our tickets from February give us a years entrance and you can go as much as you like. The kids love the climbing wall there.
We went for a walk round Portsdown hill. This is near the viewpoint that is always inundated with seagulls. The walk highlighted the History of the region with the site marked where a Hurricane went down in the war and where there are underground tunnels. There was also an old cold war building along the way and then the chalk cliffs.

The Christmas market at Weald and Downland was this past weekend. The autumn colours are just stunning! We had a wander around the market listening to carollers and really feeling the Christmas spirit. Having spent the last ten years in a place where we worked over Christmas , it feels so lovely and festive already and it is not even the end of November!
