We have had an absolutely lovely autumn this year. It went on and on and on throughout the whole of December and continued to the middle of January. I was praying that we would not have a winter but who am I kidding? Winter has arrived at my doorstep. I’m only slightly upset. It’s not as bad as it was last year when I had to endure from November until April.
In my last post I told you about my new job but I did not tell you about the beautiful roads I drive to get to work. It takes me about three quarters of an hour to drive. I drive through farm country, beautiful beech woods and a lake. I see a lot of animals on my way, mostly farm animals but I see a lot of wildlife also. I have seen foxes, different kind of dear, squirrels, badgers and a lot of different kind of birds. My favourite bird is the kite. Its flight is so wonderful and effortless.
I have a couple of days off now and I am braising myself before the bitter cold and the snow storm that they say is heading our way. The temperature is creeping down and it’s now -10°C.
Hopefully it’s better when I go back to work again. My darling little dog doesn’t get a lot of exercise now because I do not like to go outside. He has to make do with a little run in the field outside our house. And oh, I just remembered I must not forget to feed the birds.
