Winter is coming
The last few days of Autumn have felt like winter yet the first day of Winter was in comparison quite mild. One of the joys of living in this part of England is that we can look forward to only a few days of really bad winter weather before returning to normality which doesn’t even involve nightly frosts. I guess I have now jinxed things and we’ll have to endure weeks of 6 foot snow drifts! The downside of this of course is that we are all ill prepared when the snow does come and things start to grind to a halt.
Anyway walking through Calke Park today felt really wonderful. It was cold but every now and then we had shafts of weak winter light to lift the soul just a little. Less than 21 days to go before the days start to get longer by about 1 minute a day. Now that is something to really look forward to in my book.
