Merry Christmas!

The candles are lit,

presents are being wrapped, mince-pies scoffed and snow still lies all around,

and all that remains is to wish you all a very 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! 

***Discovering your lovely and inspiring blogs this year, sharing thoughts, hopes, fears, flowers, food and dreams for the future has been an astoundingly positive experience for me, and I am so grateful to each of you for visiting Wild Acre. 
I will be away until after the New Year, but hope that your deep midwinter days over the Christmas holidays are filled with warmth and peace.***


  1. Happy Christmas, Belinda. I've so enjoyed getting to know you over the last few months. I look forward to catching up in the New Year.


  2. Likewise, Sarah - you are a kindred spirit, (but about 100 times more IT literate!!!). You are an inspiration, and lovely, kind-hearted presence in the blog world.

  3. Merry Christmas Belinda.

    I am so happy that I found your blog...
    the snowy images make me yearn for a white Christmas...
    and it may still happen!

    See you here in the New Year,

  4. Merry Christmas Belinda....I have so enjoyed reading your blog with your fabulous photos and your great way with words!
    Best wishes from the Northumbrian Tundra...

  14. I have just arrived home from Norway to find a broken boiler and freezing house, so not much time to respond to all your kind wishes, but just want to thank you all so much and hope your New Year has started full of health and happiness. A special welcome to Gill - so glad to meet you. Now time to wrap my kids in duvets and get the kettle on!! xxxx
