teen nest update

Nothing much changes then! You follow the trail of clothing to find the youth, who will probably be sleeping. He played hockey on Saturday in the pouring, freezing rain, and was chilled to the bone after 2 hours in it, and then trained for rugby on Sunday on a waterlogged field, again in the cold. Therefore I am reluctant to chase him about his nesting habits for now, but thought they might bring a bit of amusement into a cold winter's day for you. Will bring news of difficulty when we have something positive

Skipper's cheerleader team

These are all Skipper's current girls watching him work out this morning. Still too icy to ride out, so after a week of inaction we have had a bit of a trot and canter around a field area set aside for the purpose. The girls proved to be a tiny bit distracting, but not too bad. As you can see they all have something in common, and I am told that their progeny is much in demand. Not by me. They are, however, steady as rocks, and so quiet you have to see it to believe it. Skipper thinks they are all absolutely gorgeous. Having a quiet day at home today, received some serious family news so taking some time out to adjust.

Here's the car roof and window-screen yesterday morning. What an artist! I certainly can't compete. Yellow horse enjoying an unexpected rest due to extremely icy roads, so have emulsioned a bedroom and painted a seascape with all my spare time! As a result of the decorating have also managed to kick out a chair and shoehorn in a new double bed for the spare room. so plenty of room for visitors over Christmas. Limbering up for some real cupboard clearing during time off work over Christmas and New Year. Where does all this rubbish come from? Someone must have brought it into the house and filled all the cupboards with it - and it wasn't me. Anyway, black bags at the ready, and its all going in the next two weeks...

we wish you a merry christmas!

We wish you a merry Christmas! Hoping the yellow horse will take the hat off when we go out in public. Loving the cold weather, and hoping for a bit more snow, despite inconvenience on the roads and the fact that at the sight of one flake the schools all close. Still painting woodwork at work, but nearly finished, on final property of this round of decorating. Star grading lady came yesterday and re-awarded our 4 stars, which we are pleased with, though there are quite a few things about the system that we disagree with. So looking forward to a bit of time off.
