Well, New Year came and went and we all survived a week of continual eating, drinking and socialising! The kids have (reluctantly) gone back to school and it's been really nice to be able to get my teeth back into work and get a few things done. Although January is a quiet cruising month we've been really busy in the workshop and sales of coal, logs and gas have been keeping us on our toes! I keep hoping that the freezing weather will give us a miss this year but looking at the situation in America I have a feeling we'll be getting it next. As an adult I hate the thought of snow and ice and worse still frozen water pipes....but then the child in me does secretly get really excited the minute it starts to snow!
