The Last Sunday of 2013

and the final Sunday walk of the year.

Once again, it was taken in brilliant sunshine.

We have been so lucky avoiding the worst of the storms that have battered other areas of England and the rest of the UK.

We did have a leak in the conservatory earlier in the week. This is normal as strong winds from the South West lift the flashing on the roof between the house and the conservatory roof. The wind then drives the rain underneath and it cascades down outside of the house wall.

We were aware of it when stepping into the conservatory to be met by a soggy puddle in the doorway from the dining room. The de-humidifier was pressed into service and the heat from the sun boosted with the help of a portable gas heater.
