It has been a day where it has been a good plan to stay within sitting range of a heater. Today was mums day off, so she stayed in bed late. It was dark with wind and rain outside so she took her time getting up. There was a wee break in the weather this afternoon, so she took advantage and headed off into town to get some supplies at the supermarket and to the posh market. She treated herself to some rice paper rolls with chicken and prawns for her lunch, and a lamb and vegetable soup with bread for her dinner.
We think we are due for a week of rain and cold - winter feels like it has finally arrived.
