Hooray, at last, it’s a longish haul but from today the days start to draw out again. Christmas and New Year are OK as far as it goes but in my opinion they are marred by the short, dull days that characterize this time of year and are a complete turnoff compared to the long, warm days of summer. And made even worse than usual this year, by the appalling wet weather that we’ve experienced during the autumn and the storms that have constantly buffeted us.
But I always say that before you know it, it’ll be getting warmer and the trees will be starting to turn green again and I haven’t been wrong yet. Me, I’ll be looking for the longer, warmer days to arrive so I can start to plan again to get 24ZN across the Channel and down to its new home in the Dordogne. And I can’t wait for that to happen 😉
