The perfect place to spend Christmas

Guests visiting White Moss House during the summer months often say,  "This must be a great place at Christmas". Yes! It is!
We're closed to bed and breakfast guests, but open for the family, who gather here every year in various numbers and combinations.
Right now I'm getting ready. Here's the Christmas tree in our private sitting room, known by the Wordsworths at "the West Library" apparently. The tree is in a lovely bay window from which you can just see Rydal Water. The lights are reflected in the angled windows, and this year I've created a vision of red and gold .I'm pretty pleased with it anyway!

I'll add a picture of the little Christmas Tree in the Wordsworth Lounge later. Why not bookmark and come back?
By the way, over 2,500 have viewed my Traditional Sherry Trifle recipe this week! I'm making it on Friday to serve on Boxing Day.


Getting ready for a Lake District Christmas

It's wet, it's grey, but we're feeling cheerful 'cos we're getting ready for Christmas.
Whilst ordering some Christmas presents from Amazon, I got side tracked, and started ordering CDs for myself. Bad, ...but good..... I'd read a review of the Albion Band's new Christmas CD. Reader, I bought it.
It's playing now, and will be on a loop till after Xmas!

Here's the Albion Christmas Band CD that I'm listening to right now.
Pity there's not picture, but it really is excellent. Music and words for Christmas. Ashley Hutchings and Simon Nicol at their best.
