A Cold and Frosty Morning

The weekend began yesterday evening for us, as we could get a good signal for the TV.
So we stoked the squirrel up and settled down with a glass of Old Specked Hen to watch QI.
Tonight it is the Victorian Farm with the handsome Peter, clever Alex and incredibly talented Ruth.
Tomorrow it is HIGNFY. We haven't watched much TV for months as there isn't really much worthy of watching, or we couldn't get a signal.

This morning we woke up to a beautiful misty frosty morning. Even the sheep had steam coming from their noses as they chomped on the frozen grass. The fire stays warm overnight and just needs jollying up a bit to bring it back to life again. Thank goodness we built up that store of dry wood back in the dry weather!
On Wednesday we went down to Badseys Bistro for celebratory 'Birthday' lunch, mmm lovely. The syrup sponge with custard was delicious, but it was such an enormous helping that we could hardly stagger back up the locks to the boat. We like the friendly atmosphere in there and everyone joins in the conversation. It is a bit reminiscent of Bridge 61 at the bottom of Foxton Locks.
