The Shortest Day.


Thank you Donna for the lovely graphics.

Good afternoon, here we are at the shortest day I am always happy to see it as things get better from here in my mind.  The nights will creep out slowly but surely. Just come in from Perth where I took these pictures I have posted. I wanted to let you see what a difference a week can make. All is tranquil again and the river flows softly. I could not believe my eyes last week but I was so glad I saw it in full flood. Have had a busy few days we did St Andrews on Monday and yesterday we had Ellen for the day. she was back to her normal self after the very tired girl we had last week. She was bouncing around and was very chatty. We took so bad with her last week I was beginning to think she was coming down with something but it was just tiredness as it had been a long term for her and she had just finished the day before.  Have now done all the food shopping and the last few odds and ends we needed for Christmas all the wrapping is done so now we can sit back and enjoy. The weather has been a bit milder today with no frost this morning and the sun was almost shining fom time to time. It has been a lovely week we have not had the fog that is being so troublesome in the south of the country. Hopefully it will clear soon for you. That's about it for today so I hope you have a pleasant evening.

So glad the river has gone down, it was remarkably high.  Yes, you sit back and enjoy. We do still have the mist here but not as bad as yesterday.  Still very cold though.  Hard to believe it is the shortest day already, I mean we have no really had winter yet, well not in this part of the country.

I'm glad the river has dropped again, I wouldn't like to see it flood at this time of year! We've had none of the fog that others have had, just sunshine and freezing temperatures! The nights start drawing out now although after Christmas we have long cold days! Have a great Christmas, glad to hear you're all done and waiting for it! Jeannette xx

Joan glad Ellen is back to normal ~ I think we tend to forget how hard they have to work at school ~ I'm also glad the water levels have gone down ~ The pictures are lovely ~ we have just about finished shopping ~ it has been very foggy and cold down here in Norwich ~ Ally
