Christmas present

Today we travelled to Worcester to see Clive's side of the family. It wasn't an exciting trip and neither of us took any photos. Dinner was very good. 

I have wanted a picture shelf above a sofa in our lounge. As I cooked Christmas dinner, Clive and the children mounted and wrapped a 7ft shelf and excitedly waited for me to come in and see it.

I must have been concentrating on lunch because I came in and sat down and it took a few minutes for me to notice it.

I put some pictures on it this morning (just for the photo.) During the coming year I shall tweak and add to the shelf and it will become a feature.

Clive also framed a painting of Venice that my Mum and I bought from a street artist during our tour of Italy in 1988. It once hung in the parental home but found its way into a dusty box after the parents died.

I was moved to tears when I received it beautifully framed. He's a very thoughtful husband.
