The others have gone out for a country walk, but I've decided to stay behind. (It's cold, I have a cough). Only four of us here so far, with more arriving this afternoon. I am under instructions to get a log fire started, but I don't know how. Besides, men love doing that sort of stuff so it seems wrong to deprive them of the pleasure. Signal here is very bad, and I will be in trouble anyway if I spend lots of time on my laptop, so probably won't blog much for the next few days.
