December wow

 We went to Anglesey Abbey for the Lights festival last Sunday - it was an absolutely fabulous evening.We were extremely lucky with the weather - it was a cold night but dry and no wind whatsoever perfectly still so it was perfect conditions.  
Anglesey Abbey is a National Trust property just outside of Cambridge off the A14 - the light festival is brilliant - although I believe it is totally sold out for this year.
This is the silver birch grove - they are apparently Himalayan Silver Birches and they had the lights changing colours it was fantastic.

Down by the river and the Mill the reflection of the trees into the water was great - again we were so lucky as the water was totally still and the reflection perfect.

My sister and Rob waiting for me to stop taking photos!!  There was mulled wine, hot food, entertainment all the way round and oh the hot chestnuts were gorgeous.

We had a lovely evening out and now look forward to going back there in the New Year to see the snowdrops.

The rest of the weekend was lovely having my sister to stay - and catching up on her latest trip and then seeing Leo and Caroline.  Then yesterday we went Christmas shopping and got just about sorted now just have to get them all packed up
