blue skies, that’s all
What a beautiful day! Just wanted to share it with anyone who is fighting winter gloom. I know that lots of you in England and in the northern isles have been having yet more snow but here, on the edge of the Highlands, we have had day after day of high pressure blue skies and sunshine.
Give me a winter like this any year over the usual dreariness of January and February. It’s certainly cold – it was minus 9 C last night – and our temperamental boiler is on the blink again, which is tedious as it means no heating and no morning shower. But it’s amazing how hot porridge for breakfast and a brisk walk in bright cold sun can make all problems seem manageable.
In honour of the long run of good weather, I have updated the Dancing Beastie headline photo. We are due snow this week, but you might as well celebrate the sunny days!
