A Very Merry English Christmas

I had a lovely Christmas at the Hillier’s in Swindon, my old stomping ground. I got a great big stocking from Santa at the foot of my bed in the morning too! Beth and Lucy tried to teach me to juggle but I failed miserably. They, on the other hand, are very good.

We had a Christmas breakfast with sparkling wine and bagels and croissants, salmon and ham, then went for a great big walk around Coate Water in the snow – which was absolutely stunning.

The lake was completely frozen over, and some mad person had made a snow angel on the ice.


I head back to London tomorrow which I’m looking forward to. Swindon hasn’t changed much, but it was nice to visit. I’ll come back again for a weekend and have a proper look round and hopefully catch up with people.

Peace y’all x

  1. Coate Water looked unrecognisable, except for the diving platform. I don't think I have ever seen it used. I now realise that its for breaking the ice in winter.

    Love the photos, especially the footprints. Do you remember dragon boating there?
