Firstly, many, many thanks to Mark, Laura, Jim and Carol for a magnificent Christmas dinner, and of course to Padma and Jago! We spent a great afternoon and early evening at the Brodies and had a lovely time. The weather had turned a little wet overnight, but it improved as the day went on, and we even had a walk along Fermoyle Strand around tea time - nice and clear by then. Caitlin was delighted with her new bike, and joined her friend Chloe, who also got one, for a ride along the lane to the beach. It may take a while until she can reach the brakes properly, so a bit of supervision is required!
Secondly, we've had more snow! It snowed all day yesterday, a little more overnight, and it's now snowing again. The pictures were taken at about 08:30 this morning, still a bit dark with the heavy clouds. The main road was very bad in the middle of the afternoon, but they even had a snowplough working, which I have never seen round here before. They carried on working through the night, and the road is now passable. More to follow!!
