Over Christmas I went to Cubley hall in Penistone for a meal with my family.  It was originally a farm, after the war it became an orphanage. It was built up into a popular pub in the early 80s.  It has some really nice features such as the entrance door.

We visited my sisters house after Cubley hall and my nephew and niece, Luke and Adele, presented me with some paintings they had created in November.  Very impressive for children aged 11 and 9.  Luke and Adele explained they painted the backgrounds first and used a variety brushes to develop foreground tones and trees.
