Busy times

Brewing a cup of tea by the River Taw. Thank God for Bushbuddy cook stoves!

No, not terribly busy, but there’s a bit going on. Compiling an anthology of short stories, preparing for a longish walk, setting out the synopses for the next two books, and then talks and other projects come into play.

I’ve been very remiss on these pages recently, mostly because I’ve not found time to work on these pages as often as I’d like. However, from this year I have decided to have this as a dedicated photoblog with all those pictures that aren’t suitable anywhere else! That being so, here’s a pic of my difficult life now. Lighting a fire with firestick and steel isn’t as easy as it might seem!

There are not that many subjects that seem suitable for this time of year, but after a wonderful Christingle service yesterday, which set up my little monsters up for Christmas perfectly (and the Gin and tonic later, thanks, Guthries!), there seemed nothing that could better summarise my feelings than this fabulous tree standing in the north-eastern section of the chancel. I was forced to stick a star-burst filter on it, just to bring out all the lights. Isn’t it perfect?

I’ve always loved this time of year. I was out today with the dogs at Abbeyford woods, enjoying the frosty air. Hopefully in the next few days I’ll get a chance to walk them over the moors a little more and get some more photos.

Hope you have enjoyed the (intermittent) service of this blog, and that you will want to come back and view more photos.

For now, though, all I can say is, Merry Christmas! And I hope you have a peaceful, relaxing time – curled up with one of my books, of course!
