has been and gone.
Yesterday was the shortest day so every passing day now brings us more daylight.
And what a mix of weather. All unseasonably warm.
In the morning we had rain, then blue skies, then damp coolness.
Everything is sodden. When we walk in the fields underfoot squelches and oozes.
The river is lapping over the banks. Footpaths are streams.
Most evenings we aren’t lighting the fire.
It doesn’t feel very Christmassy. I’d like crisp, dry cold now please.
