It has been a bit cool of late: yesterday, although the temperature got to a whole 4°C, the wind gave a it a real feel of about -5°C. This meant that I spent the whole day inside: all the little jobs I have to do are outside, and I am not quite ready to start the big jobs yet.
The little jobs include finishing the bracing of the grape vine trellis in the orchard, digging a hole for the clothes line post, washing Célestine, pigeon proofing the ex-window above our front door, painting the garden gate, painting the storeroom shutter, sanding back the shutters for the bathroom window, and a dozen other things that need doing - outside.
Compare this to how it was after the storm
closed after the storm (which was over a week ago)
damaged the buildings lining it.
Which is just about where we came in...
Edit: 15 minutes after this blog entry appeared it started to snow. I guess this means I will not be working outside again!
