My new girls have settled in really well and bless them they are still laying even in this freezing cold.
I've just got back from walking the dogs. I live on the outskirts of a grot of a town that I try to avoid like the plague but am fortunate that open countryside is just a short walk away. We've been to Stopsley Common which is on top of a hill and is very exposed to the elements no matter what the season. Turning in a 180 degree angle you get views of the town then Galley Hill to the north and round to farmland and countryside. This morning it was strangely eerie but so beautiful at the same time. The sky was grey and a freezing cold mist hung in the air and none of the above views could be seen. There was untouched snow in places and just the sound of crows echoing through the mist. Empty, desolate, peaceful and a touch spooky all at the same time. Just perfect for clearing the mind and getting life in perspective.
I took my camera with me but the flipping battery was flat so these photos were taken on my phone and I have know idea if there is a zoom function (make that homework for later)
One scatty cocker spaniel and choc labrador oblivious to the cold !
I really must get on with some tidying up if I have any hope of getting the deccies and tree up this weekend.
Bye for now x
