Well we are not faring so badly here on our hill despite the winds, many friends have had field shelters blow over and stables lost.. you have to have windows open and solid frames!
Ironic that the shelters all stay solidly put but a pretty solid hay rack gets upturned!
Well I like to add to this blog some of the things we get up to as farming life continues daily 24/7 for 365 days a year. It is something people forget when the weather is cold, wet, windy and they stay indoors by a warm fire with a glass of wine and do not have to go out!
A quick trip to see friends in Weymouth and a drive by the beach, sorry we did not get out but folk were still out walking on the beach !
We not often eat Indian food because we usually prefer Thai but a quick trip to the Rajdoot in Cirencester was a lovely meal and great service. Small interior though, as we were leaving a large party very rowdy came in and I felt sorry for the couples on the tables adjacent but great food. Their keema nan was amazing!
So glad we are on a hill.. flooding around Pool Keynes, South Cerney and Cirencester respectively folks!
We managed a sneak meal out to The Greyhound at Siddington amongst all the festivities but I was disappointed to be honest. Salt on a fish that was not wanted, salty rice under chicken and very small Sticky Toffee Pudding now..
A new light dawns on a New Year, best wishes to all, especially those with bleary eyes from staying up to watch the London fireworks..
