Harriet has had a cough and sore throat for the 3 weeks,
and Olly has had the same thing to the point where he is now on antibiotics, and it’s driving him nuts.
I was going to write about the bloody trouble Al and I had trying to get any sense at all out of Scot Rail and bargain berths on the sleeper.
I might dedicate an entire blog to that debacle, but now is not the time.
Sadly winter down here has been and gone.
It was last weekend, and very very pretty it was (be it all brief).
And because of that here are few pictures from the Fens.
|View down our garden|
|Skaters on the Fen at Upware|
|Pond near Quy|
|The Summit on Quy Fen.
Ok it’s a pile of rubble, but it’s the highest point round here
|A sign requesting NO Nudists
And they have cut down all their trees since last year
when people started cruising!
NO IT WASN’T OK!!!!!!
|One of the Clunch Pits now frozen|
|I just liked this tree|
|The Pond from earlier the next morning|
|Frosted Reeds along the river|
|The other Clunch Pit frozen over|
|Along the River, this is the pond near Angelsy Abbey|
And now it is just grey and overcast and raining.
Personally I preferred the snow.
Actually it is now spring down here (nearly), and the early knockings of little yellow plant things that have a name that I do not know and actually don’t care about, and what are probably snowdrops (minus the snow).
The difference a week makes …….
|And then NO SNOW at all|
|But the snowdrops are out
And in our garden
Talking of snow.
I bought Lucy some Snow Socks for her car at Christmas.
They are proving to be very useful (NOT).
And before anyone says that was much of a present, she also got amongst other things,
a rather fine North Face Arctic Parka which is apparently one of the best Christmas presents she has ever had. (And they were her words not mine, just so you know)
Of course I haven’t bought her a present for 15 years so anything is good. (That is a lie by the way)
So anyway, where was I.
Oh yes MUSIC!

(It’s an extra Valentine for Lucy because ………… )
