Monday 29th. December, 2014 – A Special Day 


My new work station – having moved from the summer house to the Bothy which will be my office base for my new job, starting on Thursday


Today is a special day for us as we were married forty- five years ago today in Beverley. It was a Monday and there was snow around. Today it was certainly cold enough for snow but there was none to be seen.

Rachel and I drove the dogs to Gavinton Church and then walked the dogs in the woods behind the church. It was a lovely thing to do.

Back home I had a pizza for lunch and then spent the afternoon tidying the bothy, preparing it for its role as my office and both of our library. Rachel came and sorted out some of her books and David also arrived for a coffee.

We dined in the farmhouse and then drank champagne while we watched ‘A Very British Coup’ on television. It was excellent. Finally we walked the dogs again – it s a bright star-lit night, very cold, crisp and frosty – and then I watched a bit of the final day of the Boxing Day Test from Melbourne before bed. Another lovely day.
