On Saturday, Ramsey, our small village, had their annual turning on of the Christmas lights. The lights went on at 7:00 or thereabouts (they were a bit late) and then there was a fireworks display. We had a lovely time wandering around looking at the funfair rides and buying a few sweets.
It is now getting dark at 4:30 and it gets really cold, still have to get used to this. I think the winter weather has arrived early, thank goodness for central heating.
Sorry about the one blurry picture, my camera is not the best for taking night time shots and it would help if I could hold it still for the double flash.
This is a photo from our workroom window out to the fields during one of the sunny spells.
The lamp post reminds me of the one from the 'Narnia' stories. The council has started trying to get the street lights around here back into working order with some mixed results, the ones in our square seem to be beyond all repairing and down the road this one never goes off.
You can just make out the side of our house and a bit of the car behind the lamp post.
The next few photos are just of the lovely scenery from the end of the road. We are lucky that all the houses in this little area look over farmland, it is so peaceful except when they go pheasant hunting but that we have to learn to live with.
When I took these photos the sun was out but I was shaking in my boots it was so cold. This area is apparently like Norfolk in that we get the winds from Siberia blowing over the channel and because it is so flat it comes right in from the coast.
