A weather eye
Two pictures from a few days of exquisite winter weather...the first at 4.15pm on Friday, preparing to cycle home from The Radiocroft. The second taken from the new museum in Lerwick on Saturday.
It all ended, meteorologically, on Sunday, with a truly horrible day of vicious wind, darkness and icy rain, during which I did nothing but eat, light and tend the peat-fired Rayburn, drink some fair-trade red wine and read, in its entirety, Mark Haddon's A Spot of Bother, which is very like an episode of that old TV series A Bit of a Do. Alas, not in the same league as his stunning The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, but entertaining enough for a dreich Shetland day.
