There was a layer of ice over the canal this morning and rain was forecast for the rest of the day with an icy breeze, so we decided to stay put.
However our friends took off without us, so it will be even quieter here now. Iain and Alison came by on Gosty Hill and we called out our Christmas Greetings to each other. There is a jacket potato wrapped in tin foil in the ash pan for me and some left over chicken for Bottles mid-day sandwich,mmm. When all our jobs are done we can settle down by the fire to catch up on reading our forums, books and magazines. A lovely way to spend the afternoon accompanied by the pitter-patter of raindrops on the roof.
