A long awaited weekend with our friends, Joe and Kate, their kids and the chickens.
T was in awe of the big kids, very sweet to see.
I love this picture of him with Ben, taken early on Sunday morning. Feels like a moment captured.

Last night we wassailed for the first time, at Barley Wood Walled Garden, home of one of my favourite restaurants - The Ethicurean.

We went to Bath to see the Field of Light installation by Bruce Munro, at the Holburne Museum. Typically, we left it til the last minute, and went on the final day of the show.
Here's what it's all about, according to the blurb:
Bruce Munro’s famous Field of Light is an ethereal and uplifting experience to lighten the darkest time of year. 1000s of tiny fibre optic lights will spread out from the Museum’s new extension, their reflections twinkling in the glass, and out into the back garden. In the grounds they form pools of light which shimmer and change colour to provide a spectacle of sheer magic. Bath’s very own answer to the Northern Lights.
We all thought it was ace. I love those pieces which are on such a large scale they take your breath away. Something of the Antony Gormley 'Field for the British Isles' about it (which, incidentally, will be shown in Somerset later this year).
