We’ll give you a photo-gallery for Christmas, click here to see it...
It's freezing outside and it's already as dark as it gets – the days won't grow shorter any more. During the last days the windows are covered in ice ferns. No wind and drifting snow any more, but it's still snowing slightly. Mortimer's walkabout is getting shorter every day – cold paws, you know ...
The bird-feeder is full of hustle. There are Great Tits, Marsh Tits, Blue Tits, Greenfinches, Nuthatches and House Sparrows – pretty colourful company, isn't it? A Great Spotted Woodpecker is bullying there every morning. I don't mind, there is enough for everyone. Still no Bullfinches.
Prolonged mornings and lazy evenings are passing quietly and contemplatively in the candle-light, the only sound being the spits and cracks of the fireplace.
It's Solstice tomorrow, the very first winter-day.
