Housebound, yet again, with roofers making my roof weather tight till they can replace it after Christmas, I played around with one of the handmade cards I received. I copied the trees of said card, and made my own arrangement.
A relatively new (Victorian) tradition, but one that most of us embraced;

Played with the card a bit more, and this will now be my entry.

Thanks Chris, so do I. It has a more 'wintry' feeling, I think.

It's all very Christmassy (and I started it); I had expected some older, typically British traditions.

I think that next week will follow the same sort of vein as well.

I've avoided the Christmas Traditions - perhaps not very British (except for the Cricket results)

Sunday Morning...

Dear old Santa.  Those of you who were around last year may recognise the village in the background. 

For the EXIF peepers amongst you, the EXIF may show a time past midnight (I couldn't get it to show up but you might be able to work it out).  It was indeed past midnight UTC when I took the shots (including the starfield which I composited in) but we are five hours behind here on the East Coast.  The rules aren't specific about local time vs UTC so it was still the 14th when I took the shots.  I don't expect this to cause any consternation but wanted to make it clear for avoidance of doubt.   :legit:

Well that entry timing is fine by me Ogga. I didn`t even manage it by midnight this side of the pond! For the 2nd time in 8 weeks I got a call from my daughter to say she`d been bumped into  whilst driving my car!!! >:(. Last time it was a woman deciding that she wanted to come off the roundabout and clipping my daughter on the inside lane as she went. Still in the hands of the insurers but likely to be knock for knock with no witnesses unless the woman was stupid enough to keep to her story about it being my daughter`s fault for being on the inside lane to go straight ahead at the roundabout! This time more clear cut as the woman reversed out into the road hitting  my daughter and has asked if they can settle without insurance involvement. getting quotes today but already thinking she`ll be disappointed with a £380 quote from a cheap local garage I don`t really want to use. Getting a quote at the dealership tomorrow as it has 4 years warranty left and likely to be more. Either way my premium will go up in June whether our fault or not for either accident. No fault claims still result in a 20-40% rise in premiums I`m told though my no claims is protected.

Anyway - had a few shots in the bag of no great worth but the time went away from me so no entry. Better than mine already there anyway
