'A sense of humour lends you poise, it gives you balance and it helps you to bend without breaking'

(HH Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda)


Yup, it has arrived!!!

Inevitable I suppose. I am not complaining - on the contrary, I have been quite glad at last to see proper winter weather arriving. Though the storm which brought it was rather less welcome.

That's Little Ren out in the cold - hope her engine hasn't siezed!  Meanwhile inside, I kept warm by putting together the office chair bought from the IKKY BARN in Edinburgh. It was a heavy box and remained in Ren's backside until I was able to catch a brawny neighbour to lift it up the stair for me. No more numb-bumb for YAMster whilst sitting at her works. It's every bit the comfort it looks.

Oh yes, the deccies went up on First Advent Sunday...

The Bishop's Glen hills are now all white, but at the end of November when this was taken we were still having autumn and no winter at all...  NOW THEN, ALTOGETHER PEEPS...

  4. Under every good woman is a good office chair.

  5. Crikey that Frankie and Ernie sure have eagle eyes, aye? I searched and I can't find a freak in there anywhere. It's looking really snowy and festive at your house.

  6. Oh, that office chair looks so comfy! I bet you get lots of work done now!

  7. Brrr indeed. No snow in Aberdeen yet, although there's plenty inland,
    Stay snug!

  8. Brrr! That's a lot more winter than we've had so far. One hard frost last Saturday morning and that’s it.
