The weather has taunted us today as we have laboured in the stables but at least i was able to make good use of the branch brought down by the gale the other day to display my cherub collection  - it is embarrassingly large but i think i must have laboured under the impression that "More is More" at Christmas time! Still when the sun came out briefly today they glinted in the sun from the window beside them and when we ate our supper last night they glowed darkly. They are a memory of our first Christmases together, liberated from the attic where they had been lovingly packed in kitchen roll to preserve them over the years and now ready to see Christmas again. The cherubs!
