I have been absent from Blog Land for quite a while, the events of Christmas seem to have taken over my life. We are not usually at home at this time of year, normally we are sunning ourselves in some distant part but this year we decided to stay put. In away I am pleased we are at home what with all the disruption at airports and the weather causing chaos. I have been taking my dogs for walks and runs in the park as usual, they take priority, so every morning I have put on layers and layers of clothes and we have set off, they love the snow. Here are some photos I took while out with them before coming home to slave over a hot stove.
