The pond wearing a mantle of snow and lit by a watery sun low in the sky.
From my bedroom window out over the rooftops to the fell tops beyond.
Outside my bedroom window.
Blue skies and snow.
The view from my bed.
The woodland behind the garden.
How can anyone be allowed to feel poorly when confined to bed with a sore throat, a burst eardrum from a silly infection, and a cough; when there are views like these to 'die' for. I used that word on purpose. lol
Here I am ..holed up away from the freezing temperatures, when all I would love to do is be out there enjoying the scenery and the warmth in the sunlight.
It is bitterly cold in the shade, which I experienced yesterday when I walked to and from our surgery to get some antibiotics for myself. I don't like taking my car out as I live at the top of a hill. A neighbour said not to worry, if you think you are going to slide out onto the main road on the ice without stopping at the bottom of the hill, just put the car into reverse and that should stop the car.
No fear! I don't thinkI would want to put myself into that situation!
Though...I wonder if it works?
I thought I was being well organised by baking my Christmas cakes, mincemeat pies and Christmas puddings in advance prior to Christmas shopping. Now I am holed up here because of the snow and my 'bug'. That'll teach me to try and get ahead of myself. Life, and its happenings' is a great leveller. lol
Hope anyone who pops by enjoys the photos. I'm going to enjoy an nice cup of tea which Bryan brought for me in bed. I will get him trained up perfectly before long. hahaha!
Stay safe and well everyone.
