Preparing for Christmas

Had a very diverse week, from making cider (or trying to) to chopping down and erecting the Chistmas tree in front of the games room.  Had quite a job trying to get it from the ashbed, over the fence and up to the driveway - it was rather tall and heavy, had to call in some extra manpower.  It looks really nice now its decorated, as does the plum tree down by the front fishing pool.  We put lights on that again this year, which reflect in the water - hope we aren`t tempting fate as the last time we did that, they couldn`t be seen for all the ice and snow.  Just all the lodges to do now.
