Photos from My Family at Christmas through the Years

After a year of thrilling changes and some new challenges, I'm feeling a touch nostalgic this Christmas. Unlike last year when we all gathered together in a snowbound inn in Vermont in America, this year I'm far away from my mum and sister.

This is a gentle look back through scenes from my family's Christmases from the early 1960s until 1988 - scanned from a collection of family slides.
