Happy New Year for 2010

New Year in the valley was beautiful with the hills blanketed in snow.  Much fun was had with tobogganing and snowballing!  The Half Moon was packed out once again on New Year’s Eve with great fancy dress outfits on which everyone had worked hard.  Katie and Cressy were convincing Christmas Trees, even with fully working lights when they were next to suitable sockets to plug in to!  Much of Court Farm had a Circus theme (great clown make up Tom and Annabel), and the bunkbarners (Karen, Paula, Jessie, Harri and lots of other friends) all went dressed as different band names which others in the pub had to guess from the clues (eg Paula in a boiler suit covered in question marks – The Who, Karen in pink top and chef’s hat with a glass of wine – Pink Floyd).
Next day was the traditional river jump with a good crowd to watch the bravest ones take the icy plunge to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital.  Cordelia was on standby with hot mulled wine to warm them up afterwards.  The duck race took place after the jump (proceeds to Cwmyoy Hall and Great Ormond Street).  Well done everyone!  Tony was the first in as usual, Jessie made it eventually after wavering on the edge for a few minutes!
News from the trekking yard is that Bramble has had an operation to sort out an abcessed tooth, he is recovering well now, and Murphy is due to have a small operation too – lets hope he gets through it OK and that they are both fit and well by Easter for trekking.
There was a Court Farm day trip to Cardiff and their mission was accomplished as Annabel has now ordered a stunning dress for her summer wedding to Jamie.  Before that we have Cressy’s 30th birthday bash to look forward to at the end of January – watch out Cardiff here we come!
We hope all our friends had just as much fun as we did over the New Year, and that 2010 is a happy and prosperous year for all.
With much love from Karen and everyone at Court Farm
