Seasons Greetings...

Seasons greetings to all our friends in blogland.
I would like to take this opportunity in the quiet time just before the new year starts, to say a big thank you to all  who have read this blog and given support over the year.
We have been a little quiet with our posts recently, mainly due to the cold weather we are experiencing and the large dump of snow we had last week...

Sarah and I have been snowed in for a couple of days here and there recently, due to ice and snow. We have had to make a few walking trips into the nearest town to re supply with victuals. We live on a long ridge here in Devon, and all other civilization is down long, and in this weather, treacherous hills, treacherous in our little car anyway...

So Sarah and I have had to rely on shanks's pony...

The 4x4 and tractor is king in this type of weather...

None of this stopped us making our annual trip to Bottor Rock Farm though...

Where Sarah and I bought our tree...

It is now nice and snug and covered in decorations in our lounge...

Dolly the Chicken has moved into the kitchen, and is now sleeping by the range, so I have taken the opportunity to make a lighthearted study of her...

I used the final piece of Birch bur that Chris Grant helped me remove from a tree in Scotland when I visited last Autumn...

Carving this bought back good memories...

The hovel seems to be holding up well...

String making time is still a long way away though...


The snow should be gone soon and I am looking forward to some of my friends coming up to stay.
Hopefully I will finally be able to write a long promised piece with my friend Keith from the local Mountain Rescue Team, and I will be nipping into the woods with a new hammock soon, lots of nice photos and a few knotty tips...

Until then have a 'Cool Yule' and a Happy New Year...
ENJOY...
