For the first time in ages our weekends are getting to be just that ittle bit more relaxing. There is a winding down of things to do, yes there are always the animals to feed and muck out, and there should be more tidying up done around the farm I suppose. But we are doing what farmers of old did and responding to the shortening days with more indoor activities.
The house is being tidied, and a touch of redecorating is going on. The paperwork is gradually being brought up to date. And in the manner of Archie, seen above stretched out on his new favourite snoozing place, we are relaxing, sitting down earlier, watching a bit of TV catching up on our backlog of reading material and finding ourselves nodding off in front of the roaring fire each evening.
I'm finding that apart from the constant rain and yucky mud, Winter has some good points!!
