Neither the farmer nor I feel in one hundred percent health today - I think we both have a low grade bug, although as we both feel a lot better tonight it is obviously short-lived.
So today's jobs have been minimal, although both of us are staunch believers in keeping going through this kind of bug rather than going to bed or sitting by the fire.
Apart from his normal farming jobs the farmer has also cut a Christmas tree for my son and his wife, who like a 'real' tree each year. I prefer a very small, artificial one - less pine needles to clear up. Tess went with them to choose the tree from our field and she thoroughly enjoyed chasing the rabbits, catching one - a real special event.
Thursday is my hairdresser's day and when I came back I finished decorating two of my four Christmas cakes which I make each year. They are identical so I have photographed only one and after finishing this I shall endeavour AGAIN to put the photograph of it at the bottom of this post. I am a big believer in the spider philosophy 'if at first you don't succeed, try, try and try again.' Since going on to Windows 10 I have not yet managed to put a photograph on my blog. So here goes.....
Not the best photograph - it does need turning to the right but don't expect miracles dear readers. I dare not go back in case I can't repeat the exercise! As it is it does look as though it will fall of the table.
