When this work started it was still Autumn- and I've only just woken up to it being nearly Christmas. We have the family Xmas party this weekend and we haven't bought anyone any presents- or so Ailz says. I guess we'll take an armful of wine bottles and hand them out at random.
It was mild first thing, but we're expecting a weather front from the Arctic to hit us this afternoon. The wind is beginning to growl in the chimney.
