No more snow.......


Although the news reported a White Christmas in parts of the UK there was no new snowfall here in Orkney.  It's been a bit of a grey day with some rain showers. 

 But the sun did peep through for a while....

A neighbour has some of this year's lambs overwintering in my field. They came over to say Merry Christmas while I was feeding the hens (who are now incarcerated in the hen house due to an Avian Flu episode in Orkney - more of that in another post - my hens are fine...grumpy at being indoors but fine...)

And finally..... this is what I was doing at 8.30 this morning..... appearing very briefly on the Sky News Breakfast program!  No it is not available on catch-up.  I didn't tell anyone before the broadcast and checked before telling anyone after the broadcast. Haha!  It was a bit of fun for me - a change to the "groundhog" day routine I (and many others) are experiencing during lockdowns.  It was just 4 minutes of me being asked what made me move here and how Christmas will be different on the island this year.  The hens got a mention but sadly not Button.  She is still sulking about that....

Now it's time to put my feet up and relax for the afternoon.....
