So far, so good. Day three and we have three new posts. Let’s see how long this lasts!
In our new blogging regime, Fridays are reserved for my Photo a Day weekly roundup. Apologies to my Facebook friends who will be no doubt sick of looking at these…I’ll try and include a bonus shot each week to make it worth your while.

One of my favourite tea towels. I love the weave of this very simple towel. It inspires me to sew cross stitch. A bit chewed up in the corner due to age and many many rounds with the washing machine.

Normally this is under a heck of a lot of snow at this time of year. This time last year we couldn’t see this path. Everything is frozen but no snow!

This interesting column of ice has appeared naturally in the bird bath since yesterday. It must have been formed by a splash freezing in mid air. Very cool!

Our washing machine broke on Boxing Day. It won’t be fixed until Friday so today we made another 60 mile round trip to do a load of laundry. Here it is hanging on our pulley in the kitchen – a cracking invention indeed!

Back to work today. I’m working from home because I’m not allowed to drive due to ankle reconstruction surgery…so while I’m not allowed to drive this is the view I’ll enjoy from my ‘office’ window. We had a small flurry of snow this afternoon that sent panic through the hearts of those in the education system…thereby closing the school again.

I took a lot of pictures of the book shelves today for an upcoming blog post. As I was wandering around looking at the shelves through the viewfinder, this scene came into view. The black and rust coloured part is an abstract piece of art that Alasdair has been working on, tossed aside with the (very) overdue library books. Such disarray is common in our house right now.

The cabin fever is obviously getting to me – I ran outside in my slippers and dressing gown this morning to take this picture when I noticed how nice the light was from the sunrise. This is the willow tree just outside our kitchen window and the old brick outhouse at the end of the path. Gosh, imagine running down there on a winter’s evening for a pee. Our ancestors were obviously much hardier than we are!
And a bonus photo from this morning, taken from the front window at sunrise. We’re very lucky to have a south facing house so we still get some sun in the winter. I like this, it reminds me of Narnia.
