This morning the rain has stopped for a while and the wind abated.
We walked up the nearby green lane and picked up two gallons of crabapples, surprisingly unbruised. Cue something with cranberries and another something with rosehips mixed with the apples, after I've cleaned and sorted them.
I carried them home in a small blue bag with yellow handles from a certain Swedish store and on the other shoulder a large bag of the same variety full of firewood. The Pirate was dragging a VERY large stick in each hand!
After chainsawing and apple cleaning we hope to have a much deserved Lunch Out!!
Hopefully the wind will not get up to the 80mph gusts of yesterday while we are out, but the clouds are beginning to hide the mountains I see from the living room window.
It will probably involve a visit to a secondhand bookshop with a good stock of maps at 50pence each....!!
