2010 began in snow and shows every sign of ending in snow although the current forecast is for slightly warmer weather, causing fog and mist, but basically ‘staying cold and damp with some patchy light rain’.
Meanwhile on a more domestic front, Nick had to be back at work on Boxing Day so set off at about 6.30 am and returned safely, in time… We were sad he had so little time off for Christmas but can’t feel too sorry for him as he flies to Tobago for New Year, poor chap. Ruthie had a couple more days here which was lovely but she too had to return early, as she goes to Burgundy with some friends for New Year. We meanwhile remain, less excitingly but very happily in Parwich, enjoying a gentle round of local parties, walks and get-togethers.
About 35 of us enjoyed a wonderful walk to Tissington and back on Christmas day, stopping to enjoy a picnic lunch of mulled wine and Christmas goodies in front of the Hall before setting off back home. The scenery was beautiful, the sun shone, the skies were bright blue and the snow was dazzling. We all agreed how very grateful we were to live in such a lovely part of the country – one could go far to find somewhere as stunning as it all looked on Christmas Day. (In the photo on the right you can just – with very sharp eyes – make out Orchard Farm in the background.)
Finally, a gentle reminder to any would-be-guests who are thinking of booking a holiday next year – 2010 prices finish on the first stroke of the clock at midnight on New Year’s Eve…!
Happy New Year to you all. We are about to celebrate the start of our 3rd year as the owners of Orchard Farm and Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns. We are still loving every minute of it and really enjoying all the lovely people and dogs that come to stay in the Barns. This year by […]
