Well, it's not quite how the saying goes but poetic licence and all that....
Last time I posted here, I mentioned snuggling up in front of my fire and I can honestly say, it's been one of the best things about November in the Kipping household :) along with the festive treats in all the shops in the run up to ... dare I say it?? Dare I mention the season of festive cheer, the season of giving, of egg nog, mulled wine and mince pies??? Yes, CHRISTMAS!!!
I do love Christmas and the fact that we all have an excuse to be jolly, to be silly and to hug random strangers.... well, perhaps not the last bit but you know what I mean! We're starting off our celebrating here at LMQ with our annual Christmas Fayre
and it looks like it's going to be a great day (I know I'm biased but bear with me) - we've got over 8 stalls with loads of Christmas gifts to choose from, competition games for the children, refreshments including mulled wine, Christmas cake, mince pies... oh, and did I mention mince pies? yummy in my tummy :p
But anyway, a 'random stranger' could be that guest that has decided to book one of our properties and has turned into a friend; they've invited you to come over and share a glass of wine and some aperos, you've laughed together over the fact that they've 'lost' their children for a few hours (the kids are whooping and hollering as they have an impromptu cinema night, watching the latest blockbuster in the upstairs salon) and/or shared a raclette meal with you.
