The Highs and Lows......

No comments:
We hope you have had a great Christmas and New Year - We spent a lot of time walking and gathering over this festive period, collecting driftwood (burns well), winter lettuce (a great success) and Jerusalem Artichokes (lovely roasted). We have had great, but unseasonal weather with highs of 29 and lows of 1 - most days are warm enough for a light jacket with evenings cool enough for a nice log fire. Two deaths over Christmas in the Village - Santos an elderly man who berated us daily for growing things that we can't eat (we will miss him) and Sn Blanco - an experienced runner who collapsed and died during the Ribadesella road race on New Year's Eve. Spring lambs are already gambling in the fields, Eucalyptus is in full blossom and primroses are opushing through at great pace. Coming to UK for two weeks in January - Hope to catch up with one or two of you - until then, hope you have a happy and fulfilled 2007
