T Stands For....the night before Christmas....

Hi everyone, you didn't think I would let Christmas Eve go by without wishing you all a Very Happy Christmas did you?

I have been a bit down lately, our move out of our caravan did not go smoothly and we are walking around boxes and cartons of stuff still to find homes! 
We are both very tired having been up and down the motorway and have only spent 10 days at home since the beginning of the month!

The tree went up this last, and I have a few lights around but nothing else this year!

Here's hubby saying Happy Christmas from us both after we had left our caravan for the last time on Saturday! We stopped off at the Midland Hotel Rotunda in Morecambe for a sea view lunch of Fish Finger sandwiches - the best we have tasted! We both had Mochas to drink.
I am joining Bleubeard and Elizabeth for T Stands for Tuesday (if she will have me after failing to visit most of you last week)

Some bright new chairs have been placed outside!

Over the last few weeks we have taken a few breaks from clearing things out - here are a few pics of some of favourite places.

Leighton Moss RSPB reserve

 Sizergh Castle...

...and of course - our favourite view...
...on the morning we had a sprinkle of snow!
Some more shots of around the caravan site.

Arriving...this was our our first view of our caravan..
..then round the road and down to park!
 Of course the birds were always around
The view looked so different in early morning light
On our final morning we were reminded of our very first view we ever had of the field over the road where the farmer was training sheepdogs! It was what convinced me that we had made a good choice and over the years we have seen many sheep dogs being put through their paces!
Yes, we will miss it ...but we have lots of adventures to take elsewhere now!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Happy Christmas Eve to you and yours. Changes can be hard, but it sounds like y'all are in a sweet spot. I love your tree :) Happy T Tuesday!

Happy Christmas Eve to you both and although you will miss your times at the caravan, I just know you have many more adventures planned. Your trips that you managed over the last few weeks look amazing - love the robin, and you know how much I like sky photos! Have a very happy Christmas tomorrow

I hope you are feeling better soon
Moving is hard-with Larry's illness we are not out of the woods home yet-lots of things to sell there and clean up before we can sell it. so I understand what you are going through
Enjoyed all the photos-Merry Christmas and Happy T wishes hugs Kathy

This was a bittersweet post, dear Chris. I know you and T will miss it. However, after you get all those boxes unpacked, I can't wait to see what lies ahead for you.

Merry, merry Christmas, dear Chris. I wish you and T a very lovely Christmas day that is filled with joy, happiness, and hopefully good health. Thanks for sharing Christmas mocha T with us for T this Christmas eve Tuesday.

It's hard to say goodbye to something that has given us so much pleasure but you have many new places ahead of you to explore. I hope you can now take time to rest, enjoy the festivities with your tree pride of place.
Wishing you a magical day Happy Christmas.. Hugs Tracey xx

Oh, you are totally out of the caravan now! You will miss it I'm sure. You have plenty of time to sort through boxes and many places to visit. I love seeing the photos of all the travels and adventures with the both of you. Merry Christmas and a happy 2020! :)

So you haven't 'put it to bed' for the winter, but you have left it forever. I bet you are sad. A static caravan is like another home. I hope you haven't lost too much money on it. Several people we know have had bad experiences, that's why we never got a static.
But you have lovely memories. The photos you shared are wonderful.
Wishing you a Happy holiday and happy (belated) T-Day.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and it was a Happy T day too Chris. Your photos are lovely-nice early winter views. I do hope you get some relaxing time and the move out is complete. Hugs-Erika

First of all belated Happy Christmas wishes Chris.
I can understand hoe you feel about giving up the caravan. I am sure you will have many happy memories stored. Look on the coming year as a new beginning for you both and enjoy the next stages in life's big adventure.

I don't know how you managed to squeeze in some special trips during the packing, unpacking and driving. No wonder you're tired and feeling down.

I know you have many happy memories of the caravan. Gee, I guess I do too. Sniff.

Belated Merry Christmas and Happy T-Day! Eileen xx
