Its official, we are now in the midst of the worst winter weather for decades, There has been snow on the ground for over a week, and temperatures haven’t got much above freezing for weeks now. We had another few inches of snow tonight and severe weather warnings from the Met Office have become the norm. Any kind of work in an unheated barn exposed to the weather at two ends is unrealistic and, even if attempted, would likely lead to poor quality. I’d really wanted to get cracking again but I have to be patient. I realise now that I was spoilt during my previous two winters, with work hardly being interrupted at all. This year is different and there is no point complaining. I feel lazy, lethargic and unable to relax properly for the constant nagging in my head that I am letting things slip. I know it’s unavoidable but somehow it doesn’t help. I can only hope that in a few weeks time things will look very different.
