Heading South

snowy ridge

There’s been snow to varying degrees these past few days. We’re heading south tomorrow so we’re keeping our fingers crossed that it stays up there on the ridge! Parts of the country are to expect blizzards, but so far none along our route. We are to spend a week down in Lancashire with family. It’s wee Patrick’s Christening on Sunday and the twins’ birthday next Friday. Plenty to celebrate! Hopefully I’ll be able to share some of the highlights with you when we’re there!
Before we hit the road, I thought I’d check that everyone is behaving themselves. Hamie is taking everything in her stride as usual…

Resting

…as is Patches…

P1000654The ducks seem to be getting along peacefully…

Happy ducks
…and nothing deters the chickens from their daily routine, including hanging around my feet to catch any falling peanuts as I fill the wild bird feeders…

Hopefully everything will remain as peaceful for the animal-sitters, dad, and our neighbours Mark and Gerlinde. I’ll leave you with this evening’s sun setting under the rowan tree.

    Oh dear, I think you’ve chosen the worst day of the year so far! Worse down south, though. Safe journey. Little patches is so cute. 🙂

    So often the hardest part of the journey is the preparation. Those look like fine animals to greet your return home. Enjoy and, as some say, travellin’ mercies!

    Have a safe journey down and back and have a great time with your children and grandchildren.
