On 28th December … welcome back to the cottage

After a prolonged period away, we are back to our cottage near the Giants Causeway.
We nearly didn’t come up as yesterday morning the heating had stopped working and last night our neighbour advised us that the water was off too! There have been so many burst pipes following the “big freeze” that many parts of N Ireland are without water …. we just don’t seem to be able to cope well with weather extremes here!

Fortunately heat was restored this morning, but we are rationing our bottled water until mains water is restored.

Photo is from my iPhone so excuse the quality but this is my cosy view of our fireplace from the sofa this evening.
