Winter solstice

I haven’t been able to log in to my blog for the last couple of days but Hubby has sorted it for me. Just thought I’d share a couple of pics from our winter solstice celebrations.

We lit so many candles it got quite warm in our front room. Hubby and daughter made a sun cake, we had some poems and some very very silly stories and lots of sweets.

This is Midi the largest of our cats and the least brave. He was quite fascinated by the candles at his level and watched them for ages. We were worried he might try to paw them but he behaved himself unlike ….. Puck who took our distraction as an opportunity to attack the tree again. Puck is nine years old and usually an angel, I don’t quite understand why she’s taken to attacking the tree now .
