New Home....

Hi folks, I have decided to move this blog to a new home where I hope you will join me.

I haven't yet inserted links to all your wonderful blogs but over the next few days that will be sorted.

Finally, apologies for not commenting regularly over the last few months, the old M.E. has been making it's presence felt but hopefully I will be able to make a greater effort soon.

This morning was forecast for heavy snow here but first thing it was lovely crisp start with a clear moon but as we arrived at the yard the clouds rolled across the valley threatening a big fall.


An hour later on the drive up to the cottage to see to the donkeys and hens (and Mother!) the sun came out again.


Half looking over my shoulder now, out of the doors into the garden the sky is once again looking dark and snowy, perhaps the forecasters will be right after all?

Horses in early this afternoon I think.

Insanity?



All that money.
All that technology.

And what did we watch on it tonight?

Bloody X Factor!!

A Glorious Morning

It was a wonderful, bright and frosty morning here in darkest Northumberland!

A great day for lots of pictures but the day's chores got in the way and the afternoon turned dull and threatening, perhaps more snow tonight?  There is seven inches of snow lying just a little further north in the county, if I am really good and eat all my greens there might be lots more here by morning.

Breakfast Burger-Break

We woke to the first fall of snow of the year!

The girls shot out of bed for the first time in months and ran downstairs to switch on the radio, television and computer to find out if their school was closed.

Alas it was open for business as usual.

As their school is fifteen miles further up the Tyne valley they were devastated to find out that the nearest one, only five miles away, was closed!  Their Mother's school, also open, is even further away tucked under the edge of the Pennines!  Dress code out the window, off she went in walking trousers and boots ready for anything.

On the way to the yard I drove alongside the A69 and spotted these drivers pulled over for their early morning burgers!

What a morning to discover that Mr Nobody has pinched my gloves.....
