Happy New Year!
Here's hoping 2013 will be happier, healthier and a whole lot drier than 2012!
We've just been to feed the swans - but it was full of New Year's fairweather walkers with the same idea. These pictures are from last week when we had the place to ourselves - it was drizzly and cold but lots of fun.
The swans got a bit above themselves though, cheeky devils...
...but in the end I had them eating out of my hand!
It makes me laugh when you hear everyone trot out the same old wive's tale about swans breaking your arm with a peck or a wingbeat. The worst we came away with was a gentle nip when fingers were mistaken for bread and a muddy webbed footprint on one shoe.
We're off to eat some delicious roast lamb - hope your New Year's Day is fun, peaceful and hangover-free!
