Supposedly we’re in drought but yet it has rarely stopped raining for the past 6 weeks. I’m so glad we live on a hill as the ground is saturated and this area was flooded in 2007.

The temperature has also dropped and is predicted to reach freezing tonight.  So the woodburner is on (the latest we’ve ever used it) and the winter tyres are still on the car.


Luckily I’ve got plenty of hand knitted socks to wear…
