We had a nce Shepherd family walk today down at Ogdens and the Latchmoor valley which was all frosty and frozen and beautiful in the sunshine. I might have gone a wee bit crazy with the photographs…

This afternoon has been gorgeously quiet. After my brother and his family left to go back home, Emma had a bit of a snooze on the sofa, with the wood burner blazing, and I snuggled myself in the recliner with my book to read. An absolutely perfect way to start the new year off properly. It can’t be beaten!
