There were no plans for a Raggle card this year, as she is rather elderly (approx 17yrs) and a bit wobbly on her legs to star in one of our traditional staged Christmas creations. 

However after a recent trip to an antiques market, I came up with an idea that would involve just a simple walk (wheel) on part!

Tempted by leftovers from our Sunday roast, Raggle happily wondered into this attic set, to strike the perfect pose.

The idea of a spoof eBay listing idea came about while looking for references on how to make the props.

Paddy and Raggle have been various Christmas characters over the years but never a Santa until now. If you are going to spend all evening up and down chimneys, you’re bound to get stuck at some point. Thankfully, you can always call 'Santa Rescue’

We’re currently surrounded by a lot of building work.

No matter how dusty and noisy the spot is, if the sun is shining, that’s where you’ll find Raggle.

We have to be very careful to check, as that block wall was just about to be knocked down.

I’m happy to say that Raggle’s health has improved and was lovely to see her enjoying the Snowdonia countryside on our holiday this year.




On some of the longer walks she was grateful for a little help!
