It has been cold here although its not cold compared to many winter temperatures around the world. Early yesterday morning the car thermometer registered -5C.
The cold weather seems to bring with it colds and sore throats, so lemon and honey is being sipped throughout the day. Manuka honey is expensive so I keep a pot just to use when we have sore throats. There seems to be quite a lot of evidence that it helps with coughs and colds and I am sure that just because I think it will help, it probably does.
The chickens got special treatment too, not honey(!) but I did make them some warm porridge which they seemed to appreciate.
It stayed cold all day but as it was lovely and bright, I went for a short walk to enjoy the sunshine.
As usual I took far too many photographs.
