Was the Night Before
This time last year I had spent the day at Fairy School with children calling to pick their own Fairy Christmas Tree it was a Special day but an awful wet and windy day.I returned home to settle down in preparation for our annual Christmas Ball in the Stunning Ballroom at The Crown and Mitre Carlisle.The gifts were wrapped ,the treats prepared and children all over Cumbria excited to attend.
However the evening got worse,the wind was howling the lights a flickering and the rain flowing,unfortunately a storm was on its way which led to the over spill of rivers ,the gushing of drains and peoples homes under threat.
Not many in the County slept that night, homes and businesses were flooded,Christmas taken and hearts breaking.The following morning the news was devastating and the decision had to be made to cancel the ball.
Tonight I sit and reflect on the fact that this year our Ball is going ahead however so many families still not home,still recovering from what happened and i send out Love and hope for a Safe and Happy future.
Those attending the Ball tomorrow I hope to create yet again a memorable event at this years Christmas Ball x
