Sunset field bonfire

I spotted this huge bonfire in a field near home as I drove home after work…. A friend from the village clearing hedges. It looked so dramatic in the snow and at sunset.

BEHIND you!

Sally and I went to Carlisle to see the big seasons Panto. Peter Pan. One of our friends little boys was in the role of the little boy Michael. He did VERY well and we had a wonderful childish time.

Long-tailed tits – my favourite little birds

It makes me very happy to have my favourite little birds visit us in the garden. Long-tailed Tits are welcome visitors in winter. They are so pretty. They flit in as little raiding parties and flit back out again. Its a joy to know that the food we put out could be helping them to survive the worst of the cold weather.
I”m quite proud of these photos….

Hectors birthday in January

In mid January for Hectors birthday I booked to take him on a tour around the new Lakes Distillery near Bassenthwaite. Very impressive place and an interesting tour. Then we had lunch in their very swish bistro.

Some snow and some walks around the village

On crisp snowy and icy days it was lovely to do the walk through the fields around the village. We”re so lucky to live here…

So, Christmas and New Year

Seems ages ago now. But we had a good few days off for Christmas and enjoyed quite a lot of peace and good food and drink and spent New Years Eve with Chris and Fiona as we usually do – and as always it was so good to have them here and spend several hours talking and laughing.
Pressie = wise we were sensible – EXCEPT H bowled me over with a gift of a car key. The key to his 4 year old VW Golf that was going to be replaced from lease. He”d bought it for me! Im utterly thrilled with it. I”d never have been able to buy such a car for myself. Its a BlueMotion diesel. Such good timing as my soft top Megane was definitely on its last legs. All sorts of faults in the last few weeks. Now all H needed to do was buy a car for himself. And by late February (as I am writing this) he has bought himself a Peugeot 3008, 12 plate. Very nice it is too. Comfy and spacious. It suits him.

The first two months of 2015 have flown by. Works busy. I had a weekend with Chrissie in N Lincs and spent a day with her and Lol and Rae in Lincoln. A gorgeous city. We looked in a couple of arty shops and had afternoon tea at Buntys Tea Room. Delightful.
Lolly loved her teapot
and Rae and I…..

H hasn”t been well. After shingles last year that knocked him for six for two months or more he”s been having some upper tummy problems. An endoscope revealed a hernia but he”s going back to the hospital and the doctors to talk about the results. I hope they can fix it, or medicate for it, as he”s struggling to eat.
