What a pity that this weather is so beastly for travelling around, because - really - it is so very beautiful viewed from inside, looking out. We are putting out our usual quantities of bird seed, nuts etc. and in addition platesful of scraps, raisins, suet etc. All of it is disappearing before our eyes.
What traffic there is is going past very slowly with a lot of wheel-spinning and wobbling across the lane. A stiff Northerly breeze is beginning to form which does not bode well for later in the day when more snow is forecast. Certainly, the best place to be is by the fire, which most of your messages suggest.
And speaking of messages I am most touched by your concern - both over my blog and through the post. Thank you all so much - it is so heartening. I have several friends who at present seem to me to be in a worse state than I am and that also gives me strength to be positive.
I shall now have a little tour round blogland, catching up on all your entries and leaving messages. What a wonderful place Blogland is - long may it continue to offer love and support all round. Have a good week.
