For those of you in Dunoon (and of special interest to dog-walkers, hill trompers, and kindly ‘just making sure you’re OK’ types):
Unless and until the temperature rises, do not make any attempt to come up to the rectory. The driveway and all the paths are smooth ice, and utterly impassable.
I’ve just had to cancel school assembly, and am not at all sure I can get to Rothesay for the AGM today.
This might just give me a clear day to talk with the dear folk at Scottish Gas to sort out why my heat isn’t working (though the hot water is.) Molly has gone back to bed, hoping for the last trace of warmth.
update: well, I might be iced in with no heat and an ever-worsening snuffle and cough, but still there is joy to be had. Two red squirrels, frolicking on the lawn for the past hour. Ever so lovely.
