Happy New Year!

Are you  ready? you are, all aboard then , there's enough room for everyone,shuffle up and do make yourselves comfy, the coachman is just telling the horses that they are to bring you safely to Shingle Cottage, it's a cold wintry night and the setting skies are glowing red... off you go, the horses are galloping through the country lanes with  sparks flying from their hooves,their warm breath making fluffy clouds into the night sky, hold on tight as the coach turns the corner, over the hills and dales as snow flakes pass by your window, it's New Years Eve and it won't be long until you are here ...



As you thunder past the dark woods owls hoot into the darkness, down the lanes you go until you come to a turning on your right.....ahh I can see you from my kitchen window! your here, welcome,welcome , hello, nice to meet you at last, come on in make yourselves at home....


It's warm in the kitchen as I have been cooking mince pies ready for you arriving, let's close the door and  leave the cold outside...


Beatrix wakey wakey we have visitors.... little Beatrix is tired after her roast dinner earlier today and look the fire is only glowing.. come in everyone it's nice and warm by the fireside... 


I'm just going to  put a few scoops of coal and a log or two and the fire will soon be roaring, can I get you a drink? a glass of bubbly maybe? help yourselves to a mince pie..


Oops I think the rattling of the coal bucket has woken a little someone up and she is just in time and so are you....


It's nearly midnight,shall we gather by the Christmas tree, lets all join hands....sing up everyone!



'Should all acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind,
Should all acquaintance be forgot and the days of auld land syne,

For auld lang syne, my dear, for auld lang syne
We'll take a cup of kindness yet for the sake of auld lang syne.

Let's have a drink or maybe two or maybe three or four
Or five or six or seven or eight or maybe more.

For auld lang syne, my dear, for auld lang syne,
We'll take a cup of kindness yet for the sake of auld lang syne. 

When it gets to closing time and if you still want more,
I know a pub in Inverness that never shuts its door.

For auld lang syne, my dear, for auld lang syne,
We'll take a cup of kindness yet for the sake of auld lang syne.'


HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Wishing you all the very best for the New Year ahead and I hope 2018 is filled with love and happiness for us all.

With heaps of love x
Will you join me next time for more tales and goings on from Shingle Cottage....
