Christmas is always a very hectic time of the year at Snowdrop Cottage, extra chutneys and preserves to be made, cheese hampers packed and Christmas Puddings delivered. The house is always a hive of activity until our final market when we collapse and enjoy a quiet moment. The next day we decorate the house, the children dress the tree and presents are placed ready for Christmas Day This year has been a little more exciting than normal though as we have a new member of the family who will also be celebrating their first Christmas - introducing 'Teazle', our now 3 month old Wire Haired Vizsla:
She's grown a little bigger since this photo was taken at 9 weeks but has settled in really well, she especially enjoyed her soft Christmas Turkey toy which father Christmas delivered under the tree for her. Every Christmas we take up residence with my Husband's family in North Devon where we enjoy home cooked food and lots of time as a family on the gorgeous rugged beaches. It's a time to kick back, relax and have some fun.
It was Teazle's first time on the beach and she had a fabulous time playing with the children, running away from the waves and generally dashing around like a dog possessed!
It's been a fantastic year and we're looking forward to meeting both new and old customers in 2016. Thank you to so many people who are too numerous to mention (but you know who you are) for your never ending washing up, helping on our stalls, cooking, babysitting and of course, just being there to listen, without you all Snowdrop Cottage wouldn't be here.
We wish you all a very Happy and Healthy New Year!
