Sunday 20th January

(diary entry - post backdated)

Time to take breath and survey the estate!

It is absolutely gorgeous here - despite the snow! (entry refers to 18-20th January)

In fact, this is the first time I have actually enjoyed snow for many a year.

Ron and I went for a walk up OUR lane and across OUR field in the snow.


Snow drops are in the lane, and a few primroses. The view from our bedroom windows is fantastic.... oh it is SO lovely being here!

(miss my cats, daughter, and the horses though :-)
so herare some photos! Enjoy!
