This months photo blogging challenge is – ‘Tis The Season
On 1st December, it was Mo’s birthday and I planned to take her out for a meal. That day the Coca-Cola Truck was in Sheffield, so I thought it would be nice to go and see it, to get into the Christmas spirit. It was a great time, in the city of Sheffield, with lots of lovely light displays, a santa’s Grotto and the Coca Cola Truck was a great addition, along with singers, dressed in santa costumes.
I decided to do a bit of sewing and make some Christmas cushion covers. It is the first bit of sewing I’ve done for many years and I did surprisingly well, though Jenny just had to help me out.
Mo decided to cook the Christmas ham a few days before Christmas. She sliced it and bagged it up in the freezer, to save on cooking time Christmas day. I have to say, it was/is a delicious bit of ham.
Here is one of the old favourites. A fibre optic lamp. Mo bought a couple for Christmas and I took this photo of one of them at night time. In fact I took lots of photos of it, showing all the colour variation and made a short movie of them. I used the Ken Burns effect and some classical music as the sound track.
Finally, a photo I took whilst out on our boxing day walk. It was very overcast and cold and this was the only photo that was remotely any good.

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas!
