I am not one for making New Year Resolutions - however - I really, really promise not to moan when it gets too HOT (well not much anyway).  This cold spell will stay in my mind for a long time, several nights with temperatures  down to minus 18/19 and days with a maximum of minus 12 took its toll.  As well as the River Severn freezing our central heating did too!!  The log burner warms the whole house so all internal doors are open and the central heating comes on at night when the fire goes out - well usually it does.  Overnight last Saturday the bedroom radiator froze and didn't we know it.  Thankfully the thaw arrived on Monday and all was resolved very easily.

The thaw came too early for son Matthew who went off to Snowdonia on Christmas Day with his tent to do a weeks climbing which had to be abandoned on Monday as it was not safe.

The Alpacas are well and enjoying the sight of the grass again which was very nice as we had a lovely couple visit yesterday who are thinking of owning a couple of these special animals.  We look forward to their next visit.

Thank you to everyone who does a blog - they are a great source of information and also fun.  We all have our ups and downs and sharing each others knowledge, dreams and aspirations always puts life into perspective, and Thank You to everyone who reads this blog - it is a pleasure to share our Alpaca Adventure.

So enjoy this evening, whether you are going to a party with friends, spending time with your family or celebrating with a loved one and look forward to the year ahead.

Best Wishes for 2011
