I think I’ve managed to talk about the weather in every single post so far this year – so why break the trend?! It’s almost worth putting up with the rain and awfulness when the following day it bursts into brilliant (but cold) sunshine. It was absolutely beautiful. Since I was working at home this morning, I took advantage of letting Buddy out for a very very brisk 30 minute walk at lunchtime. He loved it!

And for those that aren’t into the decaying and derelict places, an opportunity presented itself that’s proof that you should never put the camera down! I caught a rainbow outside the window, coupled with the rain on the window and a Christmas tree that lights up – the final result was pretty nice…
