We’ve just come back from a wonderful weekend staying in the apartment which gave this blog its name. It was fabulous to get away from the last-weekend-before-Christmas rush and have an early Christmas before the real one: lots of DVDs, a good deal of food, and too little excercise. Magic!

Whilst there, we met two reindeer. Their names, and you have a good chance of guessing this, were Donner and Blitzen. They usually live with the semi-wild reindeer herd at Cairngorms national park, and we sort of wished we were seeing them there. But they were regal creatures and added just the right Christmassy touch to the trip … and hopefully, to this blog too:

Merry Christmas, everyone.
