~december views~

i decided i needed a change around in my little room, so now sit to the right of where i was before, giving me a whole new view from my window. it feels a bit more 'open' and i can see different tree's (which you cannot see on the photo)

we have been out and about this past few days, it was ma's birthday on sunday so took a freezing cold stroll round to see her...this was the view of our front garden that day...a very hard frost...

yesterday we had to drive to our dentist for our twice yearly check up, which meant venturing out of the forest and to our old stamping ground of dorset and a four hour round trip in the cold. it felt really odd to be going back there...especially coming out of the dentist and not driving to our old home.

the forest was white with frost and as pippin has a very old heating system it was a very cold journey, but worth it for the views...

we passed plenty of donkeys, cows and ponies now~i was not fast enough with the camera!~ with their thick, velvety winter coats and the roads were quite quiet.

Hooray for finishing my present assignment!

i now have two more pieces of work to be in by the end of january, one of them is 70% complete and i am taking the next two days to finish the notes for the one that has to be in the week before i vanish into the heaving mass of humanity that is new york.

my plan is to have both done by that week so i can enjoy my trip without having that 'un-finished homework' feeling hanging over my head~plus i now have most of my books for my next lot of work, medieval history, which i start the week after my return from new york...two days after my 42nd birthday!

well enough of this~time to get my books out...
