pear tree log: I started this blog to keep my younger son, Jonny, in touch with life in Lincolnshire, while he spent a year working in China. That year turned into five! Now he is home and training to become a physics teacher. This is simply a patchwork quilt of some of the things I enjoy - life in rural Lincolnshire, our animals, friends, architecture, books, the gardens, and things of passing interest.

A Breakfast Meeting

Davina (our daughter) had asked George and I to take Harry to meet an old man dressed in red. 

All Harry knew was that he was going out for breakfast, so when he suddenly caught sight
of Father Christmas he was astonished, delighted, and then overawed.
Father Christmas was really lovely, working his way around the room and making sure that he had a good chat with each child.
Breakfast arrived and Harry tucked in.  He takes food VERY seriously.
Some serious munching took place and then Father Christmas came back.   Harry was the very first one to receive his gift - much to his delight!
It was a magical experience for the three of us.


  1. Thanks for sharing your happy morning with Father Christmas!

  2. What a good morning. Merry Christmas to all.

  6. Shu Han, Harry is terribly serious about food! Merry Christmas!
