The Christmas Jumper

I took this photo last year 2016, in the centre of Maidstone in Kent.  I love the way the Pumpkin Heads are trying to muscle in on Christmas, but I reckon that full on jumper could see them off any day, with a little help from the Santa Hats 🙂

Rest Awhile

A busy day of Christmas shopping, I think I have crossed all off my list, just as well, as they have forecasted that we will have about eight inches of snow tomorrow, Sunday.  Ha ha….. if thats happens then most of the UK will come to a grinding halt…….so hope its just a sprinkling.  We popped into a church today, but unlike the one in the photo, you couldn’t rest on a pew, due to a Christmas tree festival in progress, and pews, make nice shelves for sitting small Christmas trees on.  

The photo of the pews are in St Peter’s Church in Walpole St Peter, Norfolk, taken last year 2016.  If by chance we do have a heavy downfall of snow, husband has said he will drive me to St Peter’s, so I can take some snow photos of the exterior, and get some interior photos of the church dressed for Christmas this year 2017 🙂

Eating Sandwiches on a Glacier – The Jungfrau, The Swiss Alps

The Top of Europe 2015, The Jungfrau Experience in The Swiss Alps and what an experience.  This is one way of experiencing the nearest thing to being a mountain climber that you can get, with out using a rope.  After three train journeys we reached the top, we then spent some time looking at the views through the large windows, then we ventured outside to really see the views.  Totally jaw dropping amazing, for me anyway, as I’m not very good with heights, but I soon overcame any fears, it was just so beautiful.  Next we explored inside the mountain.  I found some photos of how the tunnels were made, and you can also see the very last part of the tunnel dug into the mountain.  There is an ice cave, which I have posted about, and a display of the making of Swiss Chocolate.  Then making our way down some very long tunnels we came out on to the glacier……..we sat on deckchairs and had our sandwiches, with a coffee we bought from the Glacier Bar, it was perfect, it was liking being at the seaside, but instead of sand, snow.  We sat and enjoyed watching others enjoying all the snow activities and then made our way to the next train to leave the Top of Europe, a few photos to follow of the train trips down the mountain.

 

The Old Church Chest

I love these old medieval church chests, at one time they would have held all the church records, but thats going back about five hundred years ago.  Now this one is used for lovely Christmas decorations in St Peter’s Church in Walpole St Peter, Norfolk.  You will see a few more Christmas posts from this delightful church…….I took way too many last year, and I never like to waste photos 🙂

Christmas Wreath

This beautiful Christmas wreath, is attached to very ancient wooden door, which stands in the corner of St Peter’s Church in Walpole St Peter, Norfolk.  If you look closely, you will see the delicate carving in the wood, which to me looks like the shape of some of the stain glass windows around the church.
