We awoke this morning to a crisp white frost and thin coating of ice over the canal again. As the church bells started ringing I thought I would go to church for the first time in years. It is a very welcoming place and the stained glass windows looked spectacular with the sunlight streaming down through them. The window above is 'Light of the World' and is one of my favourites. There are eight bells and the clock in the belfry and the bell-ringers practice every Monday night, very good they are too.
We went up to the Brasenose Inn for roast Sunday lunch and were also tempted into having sticky toffee pudding with custard for afters. While walking around the delightful little village we noticed that the snowdrops have managed to push their way up through the hard ground already. Spring cannot be far off surely!
