Some times you ask yourself WHY ?
First of all, We have been so busy, I haven't found time
to keep the blog up to date. So I apologize for that.
The weather has been horrible very, very wet and windy.
Barrington Court looks a bit like this all over.
a couple of trees haven't been able to withstand the combination
of soaking wet ground and strong winds.
This is the top view of a walnut tree.
The sheep don't seem to mind.
and here is something I have never done before
someone asked me if i could have a go at making tea bowls.
I've never made them before
so we shall have to see how they turn out.
Now we have the freezing weather to cope with

so come along and say hello.
They have forgotten the Christmas music so tonight I'm taking
my digital radio to put on smooth xmas.
It's not all bad, how's this for a view
and I think Marion worked out very quickly why I still wanted to go
the burgers just by our stand are just brilliant!
Well you have to keep warm some how!
Show Time is fast approaching it's that time of year when you have to think about how you want to present yourself to the world! ...
