It is still dark outside and the rest of the house is asleep. I have made a coffee, let it brew and am ready for a quiet day. At least until I run a greater family Zoom quiz tonight. Yesterday was a good if different Christmas Day. Gifts were well received and we had much to be thankful for. A different day, as I already said but a good one.
I was delighted to get some interesting reading material. The Art Deco book and garden gift vouchers were from a greater family secret Santa thing and they chose well. The bird book is to deepen my knowledge of the garden birds who have become even more important to me since Lockdown began in March. Over the summer their presence was a delight and diversion, including the nesting blue tits back again. The 1940 book is to offer scenic advice especially for a Norwegian 1807 project.
