At last we've had a few days of sunshine in Torbay so I took my camera out on a couple of walks.

Although not native, these cedar trees look lovely and give the birds somewhere to land

Looks like we're all in for a cold spell of weather although we rarely see frost or snow in Torbay. Just a little bit inland the weather changes dramatically, with areas like Totnes getting severe frosts and on Dartmoor plenty of snow. So if we need a 'snow fix' we don't have far to travel.
I've been laid up recently with a painful rib condition which is called costochondritis. I've had it for several years now and it can flare up at any time. Unfortunately trying to teach Harry to walk to heel is aggravating it and I'm not getting the rest I need for it to clear up completely. Then again I'm not good at resting. Keep fit and pilates classes start next week and I'm hopeful I'll be able to attend as I'm really stiffening up. Ever optimistic these classes will also help my numb feet, as they do improve my achy joints.
We've just had the kitchen lights fitted under the cupboards now that all the decorating is finished and we're delighted. Ribbon LED strips in soft white really lift the kitchen on these dark winter evenings.
We also had new outside lights fitted so we can see much better in the back garden. This will reduce the risk of stepping in something horrible like dead mice heads, cat vomit, and slugs and snails in our slippers!
Wrap up warm and stay safe
Until next time
