No, not Annecyborn ( smilies ) but yesterday – our shortest day.

What a dismal day it was. It was dark when I got out of bed and it was dark when I went back to bed with very little light in between.

We must have had a very thick layer of cloud because, at best, it was like twilight during the day. At least now we can look forward to lengthening days. smilies

Christmas is forecast to be wet and windy. No white Christmas for us. Still we've had no cold weather to speak of yet this winter. smilies
