A Christmas Trip

Well I did say, after my depressing post yesterday, that I would post photos.

Christine and I went to Knightshayes Court on the Saturday before Christmas ... a lovely trip (although all my trips with her are always fun).  We had been a couple of years ago, but wanted to see it decorated for a Victorian Christmas.  Each room had a fact sheet about a specific detail about the celebration.

We also stayed so that we could see the lit grounds, and were not dissappointed at all

Apparently with themistletoe, when you steal a kiss you have to take one of the berries, and when they have all gone, then no more kissing!
