    As the snowflakes gently fluttered around the ancient oak tree on the village green, a handful of Grapes stood around admiring the rapidly forming winter scene .
    Yes, after all the rain and wind of the previous weeks this was a very welcome change.

    It really did begin to feel as though the festive season was just around the corner.

    "Who is going to be helping with putting up the village tree and festive lights this year? Maybe we could get a smaller one for the Gardeners Rest at the same time? Are the old lights beyond fixing?" (the new LED ones were so dependable but took away part of the traditional frustration of untangling the garland and checking one bulb at a time.)

    Rary and VC could be heard discussing the pros and cons of clipping real candles onto the festive tree...ah...childhood memories eh?............

    Burnie wandered over from the Gardeners Rest with a tray of butties..
    Bacon and egg, sausage and egg and drippy egg and several large mugs of tea.
    "Here - get your nashers into these" he said handing them to his friends.....

    SP was heard grumbling it’s not even bl**dy December and they’re getting all festive & jingley!
    Then the grumbling stopped because the most unbelievable thing happened......

    ...she had bitten into the most delicious sausage butty you could imagine !
    Hot, spicy chilli and tomato sauce dribbled down her chin, tingling as it went.....

    She looked like something from a Vampire movie, but we were too busy eating to bother..

    Red chins and noses, dribbling yellow yolk, blue fingers,white snowflakes, orange and brown leaves crunching underfoot...suddenly the green was awash with colours not seen since the summer

    One of the sausages fell out of Nicos's butty and before she had a chance to grab it one of VC's puppies had leapt up and caught it mid air. What a gymnastic feat!!!!

    Spotting this....
