Christmas Card from Carlisle!

I took these photos in Carlisle a few weeks back, but wanted to share them with you now, and wish you all a very Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays/Sweet Solstice, depending on what you celebrate. I hope you find something to warm your heart at this festive time of year! The featured image shows Carlisle Castle, almost 1000 years old and standing proud beneath a rare blanket of snow.

The Snow Queen returns…

I’ll be back for Festive Sonnet Sunday, then I’ll be taking a break to prepare lots of exciting things for EIF in the New Year, and maybe even take some time off, if that is possible!

Best wishes,
