|Views seen from our bedroom window over the rooftops.|
The above photos were taken from our bedroom window/through all the rain and snow lashed fug layers on the window panes. Hence the lack of real clarity.
Thank goodness to see blue skies again, even though there are some clouds.
We had everything thrown at us yesterday. Hail, rain, sleet and large snowflakes. High winds too. Yet, here we are today, and most of the snow has retreated back up to the lakeland fells.
I was meant to travel to play my indoor flat green bowls yesterday, but the weather put a stop to that! It was blizzard conditions by the time I was ready to set off, so I decided, out of fear; since I was travelling alone, not to go. I think I mentioned in my previous entry that it was 30 miles to Penrith from here and meant travelling up through the fells along the motorway. I wish it had been today instead...but c'est la vie!
This picture hangs on the wall opposite my chair. It is the interior of Hill Top Cottage which was once Beatrix Potter's home..
It's not too clever, as I can see my own reflection in it, but it gives an idea as to what it is like inside.
There is a cat by the door in the sunshine and another one lying on the ragrug in front of a roaring fire. The table is set for tea.
The National Trust now look after the cottage which is just across the lake from our village.
Bye for now....
