I've not been posting much as I've not been doing much apart from working! No significant snow falls here yet, just a sprinkling so far in some parts of Orkney. Temperatures are hovering around freezing for the most part. The wind also adds the "wind-chill" factor so it's felt very cold for the last few days.
Today the wind died down for a while but it's been blowing for several days in a row. The direction is not good for our pier, so although the water might not look that "choppy", our ferry has trouble coming alongside the pier. We've had more cancellations to our service, and the children have missed a few more days from school. I'm sure they don't mind but I also think they would prefer SNOW! They may get their wish yet!!

Meanwhile as I still can't get outside much I've been baking. A fruity sponge traybake and some little lemon cakes.
This was taken on a run up to the post box to post some letters. Looking back at Hoy High Lighthouse and "home".
I don't participate in "commercialisation" with my blog. However one site has kindly named my blog as one of their "15 Brilliantly Unusual Blogs" so the least I can do is put a link back to them HERE They do have some lovely things in their catalogue too so I might just be tempted ;-)
