Digging in Winter


By siris


I have been a bit remiss about blogging our holiday to South Africa over the winter, but I have been a bit busy digging….in France.

Bring on the heavier equipment.

Over 12ft fell during a period of less than a week. The terrace is/was cleared, so I can now restart my blogs….
…continuing with our holiday to S Africa.

I thought the sun always shone in France! I took one look at your images, sat in front of the fire with the cat, and enjoyed a glass of mulled wine. Now that's my idea of work in Winter!
