For me, it has also been written with two other special parents in mind who so sadly lost their battles with cancer this year.  

In loving memory of Fran, who died in June, and Alan who passed away  this December.  Both loving parents who were always to be seen out and about and making the most of their time with their families.

I will be thinking of their respective children and spouses facing their first Christmas without a much loved Mum or Dad at Christmas time and forever. 

We all need to treasure the happy memories we make while we still can.

Wishing a healthy, happy Christmas to my friends, family and readers.

    What a lovely post! Despite the horrid weather you all had a great time and the children looked so happy playing together and meeting the animals. As you say this is what matters – spending quality family time together making cherished memories. Thanks for linking up and have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

    I love this place and you always find so much to write about it. Love how they can just play in the hay – mine would love that. I am so very sorry to hear about your friends too 🙁 x

    Thanks for commenting. How odd that I wrote 2014 in the title. This year seems to be going particularly fast! x
