This morning we woke up to the first cold snap of the winter and the first really hard frost of several winters I think. Mild and wet has been the order of the day here in recent times. Here is the view across the bottom of the yard into the edge of the field where there was an Iron Age enclosure (until Next Door "modified" it with a bulldozer.
I hope we are at the final hurdle with the selling queries now, though I will not bet on it all going forwards without a hitch . . . going from recent experiences as our buyer is just a trifle demanding.

Christmas is going to be something of an afterthought this year. We have got some of the Christmas decorations down and put a couple of bits of tinsel up so far but as we always have a real tree I don't like to get it too early or it will be bald by Boxing Day! We had a Nordman Fir last year and that must have been "old stock" as it dropped, and I've never known them do that before.
Hah - the view was meant to be the thing in focus through this cannon hole at the castle the other day!
