The crummy weather hasn't helped my mood, being cold, damp, cold again and then wet - but the sun is out today and there are compensations. Firstly, I found a Jacobean mansion owned by the National Trust to visit.
.......and a stream runs along the front of our property and the banks are jammed with snowdrops. On clear nights we can see hundreds of stars too - not something we ever saw much of in London with all the light pollution.
Hope to be back online soon.....
