Like pretty well the whole of the country, we have been having some very unpleasant blustery, grey and wet days. We have escaped the terrible wind which we can hear roaring over Parwich Hill which deflects it all nicely away from the village so the trees in Parwich are untouched.
I had to go to Bakewell for a meeting this morning and had an interesting drive along country roads which hadn’t been so protected, through deep and lengthy puddles, and skirting very delicately at one stage around a large tree which had fallen across the road.
In spite of everything the sun did manage to get out this afternoon, and outside in a flash was John with his new camera at the ready (the bad weather has been a serious frustration for him, photographically, but it has been good in that he has been able spend some time poring over the manual and a couple of really good books he has been given which are very helpful but which to those whose camera is on their mobile phone, could be in another language. (This new camera is not a toy…!)
