1. A damp and windy start at the 'Tannings'.
2. What a difference a day makes!

You can see from the photos that we're far from the madding crowd and pretty isolated from everything except the weather. Despite the vagaries of the wind over the past few days everything has remained in place and we've had surprisingly little rain (so far). Gunner's water bucket froze over two nights ago but the wind has since brought the temperature up a degree or two.

Passing gongoozlers have been inhaling the woodsmoke drifting from our chimney with relish and a certain amount of envy too. One gentleman asked if he could take some home in a bottle! Anyone who grew up around an open fire will know exactly what he meant and understand just how that simple aroma can evoke a deep feeling of comfort and nostalgia in many of us.

Don't forget to use the google map link in 'wilvir's current location' post to see where we are.
