Happy New Year everyone. I hope 2011 will see you all warm, dry, healthy and prosperous. Me too, I hope!
The pic above was last week with Skip still in the grip of the cold spell. Now that there has been something of a thaw, the efforts to dry out the cottage are continuing apace. As I write this, there's a big dehumidifier working hard, and no fewer than six big fans are running at full blast in various rooms and the attic. If you see Skip Cottage flying past outside your window, that will be the reason!
The road to Skip from the south has these old beech trees, here looking good after a frosty night.
This big beech is at the bottom of the garden with the Annan just behind.
This is the road leading down to the village with 'my' standing stone just visable in the field on the right.
