How quickly the days pass, Dec 5th being the last entry. Weather has been for the most part sunnier and drier than the previous December. Christmas Day turned out to be a white Christmas after all. Morning drizzle changed to snow as we chatted, drank coffee and looked out of the living room window. It started to slowly melt on Boxing Day but then, when we awoke this morning found that another snowfall had coated everything in white once again.
