Well, it certainly is beginning to feel like it should be Christmas, soon!
The Fieldfares have arrived – always a sure sign that the colder weather is on the way. They have been loving the winter berries and seem to suddenly darken the sky as they fly in great numbers from tree to tree.
The lights are up and twinkling in the nearby Market Town of Diss and also Norwich, our County Town; Carols were being played during the St Nicholas Christmas Fair staged by the various crafters in the Diss Heritage Triangle last weekend and Gillian has been busy making a Wreath for our front door.
The hens are not enjoying the cold wind so much – we have been down to just 2 eggs per day, recently – but Bertie the Black Cat who adopted us just over a year ago, choosing to live in a basket just outside our back door (we’ve tried inviting him in, but he prefers the outside), really appreciates the Pet’s Pad we heat for him each night in the microwave.
We wish a Very Merry Christmas to all our guests and also to those whom we will be welcoming to Inglewood House in the coming year.
