A few bits and pieces from over the Christmas period.
St. James The Great, Barrow in Furness. We are ringing for the Christmas Eve Crib Service.
We are sporting our new 'bell-wear' clothing range.
Some of the variations on a theme as demonstrated by myself, Andy and Cameron. We have Hoodies, T-shirts and Polo shirts with several different wordings. Sue and I also have a T-shirt with 'Barrow Bells on the pull every Wednesday' on the front. Andy has this on the back of his T-shirt and Paul has it on his polo shirt. Now at least we can be the most co-ordinated bell ringers in clothing, if not in ringing!
More punch vicar? We have mince pies, cake and hot punch before we start to ring.
We were kindly joined by Owen and Martin from Dalton to make sure that we rang all eight bells.
The bell ringers. We also rang on Christmas Morning. This was the first Christmas Day ringing this century! Jeg from Millom joined us so we could ring on six bells.
Felix has found the one tree that you can't hide under and jump out on unsuspecting birds!
Tom and Tigger on Christmas morning.
Felix thinks hiding in wrapping paper is great fun!
Tigger has found a bag of chocolate money to play with.
Just before Christmas was Tom's graduation for his Masters Degree in Politics. Lancaster University had awarded him a scholarship of £10,000 to do this, and he paid them back by achieving a distinction.
Just like last time Tom is just a blur! Chancellor, Alan Milburn did the honours.
A late afternoon walk around Cavendish Docks.
Peaches and Felix. They have a dog bed....shush don't tell them!
Aliens are among us!
A New Year's walk along Channelside and up on to the old slag bank. It was windy and freezing!
A plane coming into land at Walney airfield.
Looking out towards Blackcombe.
A beady eye was kept on us!
Yesterday's sunset over a frozen Leece Tarn, which has a large population of ducks and geese.
I went to Leese to visit Cyril. He played the trombone with great skill and precision.....I massacred a cornet and scared the wildfowl!
Happy New Year!
