No hunting the wren this year 😦 …
A good Christmas, apart from the weather. Had a long chat on skype with the bother and sister. And her mother and aunt who were with them. We unwrapped our presents, and did a tour of both houses.
Earlier, we did our traditional trip to lay a wreath on the grave of Mom's friend. It was touch and go, the roads have been absolutely terrible, but we took our time and luckily traffic was quiet. It started raining just after we set off. I think that actually helped. It warmed up and the frost on the roads melted. Anyway, we made it there and back without incident.
Of course last night all the rain froze and this morning we were greeted with a solid sheet of ice outside. So the charity walk was cancelled. We were supposed to be going to lunch with family later, but they advised us not to come. Even if we did make it there chances are we wouldn't make it home.
I did venture out, just down to the shop for a few essentials. That was enough to convince me that staying put was a good idea. Now it has rained again and that on top of the ice is just lethal.
On the other hand, if we had been out we would have missed the fox that went trotting through the field past our front window this afternoon. 😉
