Linking in with Jane again today.


This morning in Boswinger!

The birds sound like they are enjoying the calm, after the winds of the last few days...

Hope all is well with you.

I miss hearing birds! We don't hear them too much in the winter here. Very nice!

Rural Life

We live in a small hamlet of 14 households - all on one lane, but spread out & mainly detached, apart from the 3 barn conversions across from us. There have been a number of changes in the six years we have lived here, people moving in & out, houses renovated & extended, but for us - the worst thing is that the last few newcomers are city people. They have all spent thousands of pounds modernising their homes & turning them into fortresses. Fences & gates have been erected, security lights & alarms fitted...

Good portions of quality nosh prepared with love and a flair for presentation. Rival cafes, take note: This is how it's done.

Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale i…
