Toby, Sarah, Brian and I sat in our house on New Years Eve and thought about all of the new years we’ve shared there and all of the new years that the house has been witness to in the hundreds of years it stood and sheltered people before we arrived. The room seemed absolutely full of the spirits of the past and who knows -perhaps the future as well, both human and otherworldly, and we celebrated with them all. Our hope is that this house will continue to stand and be witness to many, many more years and hopefully centuries of people sharing and loving as we do -allowing this world and the Otherworld to co-exist happily and without too much mischief!
Happy New Year to you all.

This is the traditional game of Monopoly ( Sarah won by a HUGE margin) and this is a New Years creature that we found enjoying the sunshine in the garden today.
