|The temperatures dropped yesterday and we have had frosts|
but escaped the snow in other parts of the country
|The advantage of sunrises at this time of the year, is they|
don't require getting up at an unearthly hour
|I love the rosy glow of crisp winter mornings|
|A little Christmas and New Year greeting|
Ian likes to follow Santa on NORAD and around 9.30pm Christmas Eve he told me that Santa was ahead of schedule. Well sure enough shortly afterwards our doorbell went, obviously Santa was not going to tackle our rather narrow chimney. As Ian had disappeared out of the room, I thought for a minute that he was playing games with me and maybe he had gone to fetch something from the car. I went to the door and instead of it being Ian it was actually a friend of ours with the most humungous box of chocolates, a bottle of wine and a candle with crocheted cover that his wife had made. He wished us Merry Christmas and all God's blessings for the following year. Such a surprise! Oh yes! Ian was actually just having a shower, so he missed the fleeting visit.
|A golden glow|
|Eyre, our kitten, kitten likes to follow us wherever we go.|
The alpacas are curious about her and we are not sure how
safe she is when she gets in, but so far she has run off before
coming to any harm.
|Not the best place to get a drink, that pond is only just|
|Our little kitten is not so little any more|
|Enjoying a new bale of hay. The feeders can be stuffed with|
hay and they will still come and feed off the new bale
