There has been little in the way of golden light over the last few days, here is my walk to work on Tuesday morning at eight o’clock.
I saw not a soul, the popular dog walking and view point was deserted, of dog and views, thanks to a passing snow squall
I wore my new Yaktrax, I was very impressed. Not a slip or a slide and altogether pleasanter walking on the icy road.
This morning I had a later start at work and I managed to squeeze in a host of chores in the hour before I left, very satisfying, a golden hour; amongst others.
I cleaned out and moved the hen ark (on my own, a heavy job, with, if I do say so myself, the ingenious use of rollers ) the ark was resting on a very muddy and squalid bit of field. The chicken were so delighted with the new grass in the run and fresh sawdust in the sleeping compartment that they took one look at the weather, felt the icy wind beneath their wings and went straight back in the ark for the day: so much for free range.
Re-filled the bird feeders, which are going down at a furious rate, I need to order some more feed
