This is life in the fast lane.
Winter has arrived. There's a chill easterly wind with just a hint of sleet blowing in on the air. The wheat that's been planted in the field facing the gate putting on a late spurt of growth.
As we head off we see a farmer already at work grubbing out the last of the sunflower stalks. The countryside being put to bed for the year.
The PONs are supercharged by the drop in temperatures. Sophie, who is usually a 'smell every flower sniff every tree trunk ' girl, races after her brother. They, ineptly but noisily, excavate mole hills. This is life in the fast lane.
Today the bakers has on display a lemon meringue pie, an Opera, what the young lady thinks might be an apricot mousse cake and an uninspiring banoffee pie.
'The Font' is still managing to get roses for the dinner table, although with the sharp drop in temperatures not for much longer.
Amazon deliver a package of books. They've put the books in a box that's too big, haven't put in enough padding and voila ! the box breaks as the heavy books rattle around inside it. The Post lady has done a good job of taping it up.
