What a reaction !!....

The girls tucking into their hay..
Snow baby, Zullulah ...she loves to roll in the snow, with Minstrel.

We have had more snow today....


Well, I had no idea when I posted a photo of my wood store, I would create such a reaction among regular readers....


It just goes to prove that along with myself....who is slightly biased of course, as I built it...I thought it was a good attempt...mind you I also find a great deal of pleasure in looking at the wood store....there's a strange feeling of satisfaction when you look at it and its full !! Its a bit like the comfort you get sitting by a lovely real fire ! on a cold winter's night, and lets face it we are having plenty of those at the moment.


According to the weather men, this has been the coldest January in Scotland since records began. The alpacas have once again spent the day indoors....there's no need to go out, good food on demand, a warm dry bed and plenty to drink....without having to tiptoe in the snow and face the bitterly cold wind.

Why would any man or beast want to go out when all this is at hand. I have also spent most of the day inside...keeping warm ... fighting for a place next to the fire ... I'm third in line to Zonda and Diesel... who keep a hearth side vigil.


Looks like this wintry weather is set to continue for some time.

Thanks Jayne, your pictures of the snow keep our feet on the ground, and thankful for clear roads etc., while you keep your own feet off the cold ground! We may seem worlds apart with the weather, but we still have need of a log store, and hay for the alpacas, so there is something in common!

Keep warm up there Jayne, it has been sunny down here and cold but not 'Scotland 'cold (well we are only 25 miles from the south coast!)
