New Year’s Eve Party, Buckland Style

For the past 4 years now we have been to the Buckland St Mary New Year’s Eve party held in the village hall.  On Tuesday night there were 98 people attending and our neighbour, who was in charge of catering, laid on a really nice spread of food.  After tucking into that we had silly balloons and party poppers going off and a game of adult pass the parcel!!


I even won a small prize in the pass the parcel. There was also a raffle with lovely boxes of chocolates as prizes, but I was quite glad not to win one of those as I would have had to just look at them throughout January as we start our diet!!


The long thin balloons were flying off all round the room making a squealing noise as they went.


The disco got going and lots of people got up for a bop, with most doing the conga and everyone got up for Auld Lang Syne at midnight.


So a good time was had by all, a nice way to see in the new year, surrounded by friends and neighbours.

Happy New Year to you all, and may it be peaceful and prosperous.

We have  vacancies in the B&B for all of January and February.

Merry Christmas

I should like to wish all my friends/readers both far and near a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year in 2013.


Here is my dresser full of Christmas cards. It’s so lovely to receive them and display them all round the home.
