The Yule Fire

has been burning brightly for the past couple of days.

It's not been that cold (yesterday, it was 14degrees) but it has been wet and dull and grey.

To dispell the gloom cast by the weather, the Christmas lights are up, the holly  cut and brought in for the mantlepiece and window ledge, and the Christmas Cards are strung along the walls. The fire adds a cheery glow to an already cosy room.
