I'm house sitting a 331 year old cottage. It is very cosy whilst being wet and windy out there.
However the computer system used is 15 years old and begins with W....and the browser begins with an I and an E......and being a bit rural....all of this adds up to extreme slowness!! But at least I'm here, with you all for company!!
There is also a garden to potter in, IF it gets dry enough!!
I went to collect a car-load of bagged pony manure at lunchtime from near Blaenafon, and the water was running off the mountain in streams. The Environment Agency has issued flood warnings, but we should be fine in this hamlet. (the cottage has its own flood barrier and it has never been nearer than a metre to the top!!)
I've posted off the last 2011 order, hand delivered another, so just one storage jar to go- but as the recipient has gone to the Nederlands until next week, it can wait!!
I topped up the stock in the gallery in The Court Cupboard this morning, with small mugs and pin trays and small pencil pots and bottles. They may be small, but they are selling, for which we are all thankful.
Now to light the wood burning stove and think of supper!!
Enjoy your Festivities, however you do them :-)
