You can always rely on Winchester for some beautiful doors and wreaths, plus a few surprises in the winter sunshine.
Here are some reasons why a week away straight after christmas is a good idea.

Peonies beautiful peonies, need I say more. I spent £5 on five peonies in bud six days ago and as far as I can tell I have a lot more enjoyment left, what a small price to pay for so much pleasure.
This week I have managed to shake off the flu (mostly), I've been back to work , I've tried to make myself look more back in the land of the living , its been nice to be more back to normal but catching up has been hard, especially without my phone! (Sorry that's the last time I mention the Blackberry) Blogging has taken a bit of a back seat I'm afraid, but whilst I was ill one of the thing's I kept thinking was that I would really love a good local bakery, the nearest one I know of is a lady who has a market stall in Winchester in the high street, or Caracoli in Winchester or Alresford, not exactly local.
