Happy Christmas!

Our tree is up and decorated and Spooner-Gregory Acres is looking very festive indeed. We will be having a proper knees-up because Jon has finally finished his PhD. Hurrah! Here is the finished bound thesis - the hard back version will be bound later in the spring, after his viva.

In case anyone is wondering it's called ' Marginal Environments and the Idea of Improvement: Heathland and Moorland Landscapes c.1650-1850'.

Happy Christmas everyone!

We have a winner!

Congratulations to Jenna! And thank you to everyone else for leaving such lovely comments :)

A short post today - it's so cold that I can't type properly! We had a little expedition out into the cold to buy our Christmas tree, its sitting outside in a bucket at the moment but expect a blog post festooned with decorations soon!
