The car that got us from one end of the country to the other sits and rests at the top of the drive. We arrived home at the weekend, and although the roads were snowy in places, especially around Stirling and Perth we missed the recent heavy falls that shut the main roads south of us
The wedding was near Petworth in Sussex and very pretty, though very chilly.The photographer kept photographs to a minimum to prevent frost bite and red noses, and sorry, but not one photo of me in my posh frock, I was probably back inside the church leaning on a radiator.
Since our return to deepest darkest Letters, the snow has been relentless. This morning on our walk we watched the next fall of snow make its way silently up the loch towards us.
We tried to head it off at the pass as they say! But it beat us. We were less than half a mile from the house when it tipped its load down our necks and in the tops of our boots
Life in the slow lane isn't without its hazards! Police advise drivers to stay in their vehicles!
I know there are all sorts of reasons not to like the snow, but I do love it. I love the muffled silence, its incredible beauty and how it changes the light.
Two of our children are due to arrive next week. I've no idea how the weather will be by then. They intend to travel up from Kings Cross by train. The plumber is due this Friday. He's coming from Gairloch, a little south from us, where the snow has also been heavy. His arrival, or not, will determine whether we have, or don't have underfloor heating in the shower room by Christmas.
While we wait the house is warm and very cosy even though we have one or two underfloor heating issues - but that can wait till another blog!
