Happy New Year and more castle photos

I am sure you will find your way through the castle photos - odd shots from odd angles, and not as sharp as they should be as only at the end did I finally realize they were blurry because I had the camera on a food photos setting . . .  Sometimes I think I am losing the plot.

I wish you all the best for 2019 and let's hope it is an improvement on some of the parts of 2018 - especially the not in the best of health bits which seemed to feature far too heavily here. The Chinese New Year gave us (both Dragons) 1/10 for health and boy, it wasn't too far adrift at times!  I'm not even going to LOOK at what predictions the Chinese New Year will give us in 2019, just take it as it comes.

K and I are both tired as we had long day at our local Fleamarket yesterday (thankfully it was mild and so we weren't standing shivering inside as normally happens, when there is a sudden cold snap the day or two before we are scheduled to be there. We had a good Fair too, which made up for all the bad ones there this past year.  On Saturday and today we have been across to our Unit, as it hasn't been a success for us there, despite it being a nice place and lovely folk running it.  One more trip should see the Unit emptied and the house even fuller than ever, although we did give all the 2nd hand books we had there to the other folk who run it.  I couldn't face having boxes of surplus unwanted books back in the house, and we are gradually working our way through the bookshelves and getting rid of the surplus we don't want to be taking with us when we finally sell (though that seems as remote a possibility as ever).  

Let us hope that an evening's relaxation and a good night's sleep give us some energy again.

Happy New Year all.

There are four HUGE Bronze Age Cairns along the ridge (this is the edge of the Black Mountain) - here are two of them.
