Last night friend W and I,along with a lot of other people, went to an event in the village called 'Food of the Americas' - there was a delicious array of dishes cooked by local people in the church - all with an American theme (so plenty of chilli to match the very cold night).
W collected me from home as I can't drive in the dark (eye problem). It snowed/sleeted all the way there (only a couple of miles) and when we came out at around nine o'clock after a lovely evening with nice company the roads were like an ice rink.
Another friend C, who had known the farmer very well (although I had never met her before I had heard so much about her) gave me a lift back to save W making the perilous journey and C very kindly saw me to my front door. I am super scared of falling on the ice.
This morning is another beautifully clear, sunny morning with more than a hint of frost everywhere. As my sitting room faces due South the Winter sun is very welcome indoors as well as outdoors.
