Latest weather and leg update

the legThe snow and freezing temperatures have lasted nearly a month now.  Jolly jaunts into Ashbourne or carefree walks to local pubs are distant memories, trapped as we are by the external conditions and my being ‘legless’. Not so trapped that we haven’t enjoyed two lovely evenings recently with local friends…

Our guests are coping far better than us. All so far have made it, all so far have been able to leave at the appropriate time, all appear to have thoroughly enjoyed the Alpine conditions. Two of the last three  have not made it – or only made it with help – up the final hill to Orchard Farm. Fortunately it is possible to leave the car safely at the bottom of the slope, and trudge up with all the belongings. Having promised help with a sledge we couldn’t find ours, but have been promised the loan of another so Friday’s arrivals and departures may be easier.

Or perhaps by then it will have thawed?

The leg by the way is coming on fine. I am becoming reasonably agile on crutches, and pretty deft at steering the wheelchair about the house.
