My week in photos

Its been a stunning week here in the Tarn, bright blue skies, freezing nights and log fires everyday.

Ive been randomly snapping away here are a few random snapshots of my week.

The week started with a fabulous present from our dear friend Rachel who had been visiting us the previous week, she left us with a advent calendar made up of 25 presents all immaculately wrapped and numbered, as I’m typing this I’m waiting for kev to come home, he’s just flown back from London so we can open number 1.

Rachels Christmas Advent

Its been very cold here and we have had the wood burning stove on so much we have been using up our fire wood so Tuesday brought us another 3 tons of wood which yours truly had to hump and shun and stack in our wood store, i don’t mind i was just thinking of all the calories i was burning off and how many extra glasses of the red stuff i could have.




Wednesday was such an amazing sunny day, the light was incredible so i just had to snap away on my walk with Pickle.








You can just about make out our house in the centre of this silouette.



And of course i carry my secatures with me on my walks just in case i spy some nice foliage, and i did and heres what i did with it.



Thursday saw another freezing morning but lovely sunny day.




Barnaby enjoyed the rays of the day as well.




And after a long day the furry ones snoozed by the wood burner.




Friday was market day so off i went on a mission to buy cyclamen, it had to be red to add a shot of colour .












What will next week bring mmmmmmm
