Christmas and New Year wishes
To my readers in the US, UK, Spain, Germany or France, my very best wishes for 2016.
However on to Christmas in Cornwall.
Every year volunteers and gardeners on the National Trust's Cothele estate (on the banks of the river Tamar), create a beautiful, dried-flower garland for the Christmas season.
So during Christmas Eve afternoon, Pete and I paid a visit. It was spectacular.
If you visit the Tamar Valley I strongly recommend a visit to Cothele, even if it's not at Christmas. http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/cotehele
We also popped along to the market town of Tavistock,
Great shops and a pannier market with everything from clothes to flowers to chocolates. I bought Pete a train in a tin :)

It's easy. Take a steel tape measure, stretch it, hold it up and link to a friend's open mouth and send the Malteser down. We tried it down a flight of stairs. T'was fun.
And before I finish, a promise of what's to come in the next few months.
Book 3 will shortly be on its way to the editor and the illustrations are already underway.
Meet Tyto the Barn Owl.
