Archive for December, 2015

It’s after Christmas and so there should be at least one frosty day. At least one opportunity for hats, scarves and gloves and hot chocolates by the far. Instead we’re watching Daffodils bloom, grass grow, trees sprout and animals run around like it’s the middle of Spring.

It just doesn’t feel right! However it was nice to spend a few hours sitting on the meadow enjoying the fact that the temperature was manageable and the ground warm.

In the North of the country it’s a different story. Yes, the temperature may be good but the water levels are rising and the floods are horrendous. This time two years ago most of the meadow was underwater and yet we’re barely squelching through the grass to get onto it this year.

It’s bizarre. Scary too. The weather around us is changing so much and so quickly. Who knows when we’ll next see snow!

Photography today has given me the spark to think about what my next photo-project will be. 2016 will feature a few more Weddings, some trips here and there but above all that, an epic holiday to the USA. I’m considering whether the photo-a-day challenge will fit with my life this year or not… watch this space!

“Without music, life would be a mistake.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche

Christmas isn’t Christmas without carols. I forget this every year. I get through the first few weeks of December feeling that bit of Christmas sparkle, but nothing more, and I wonder why. Then when I attend a Carol Concert, it all falls into place!

This year was the best Carol Concert I’ve ever been to and it was hosted at the Museum of Army Flying in Middle Wallop. The location itself is stunning. Getting to wander through the museum after hours is a privilege and to be amongst the exhibitions listening to Christmas music is just magical.

This evening we were serenaded by the Middle Wallop Military Wives Choir and St John’s Singers from Salisbury. Both complimented each other fantastically and the program was amazing with some nice surprises to get the Audience participating as well. Mince Pies, Mulled Wine, the setting was perfect and with some carols in the mix it was a great evening.

This was my favourite part though – “Wherever you are.” (Apologies for the blurred video – I was enjoying the music!)
