It must have been the chilli ...

Sheesh it's cold! And windy!

I knew it had been a bit wild last night, but I didn't expect to find this:



Just to give you an idea of the perspective:


This is the dogs' favourite chasing tree - they run (or, used to run) around and around it. In fact, they have worn a ring around the base. Oh well, we won't be short of logs for the fire for a while I guess.

What I didn't take a picture of is that had the tree fallen in the opposite direction, it would have taken power cables with it. At the side of the house. Yikes.

Also (not pictured) the roof has blown off the parcel box and the felt has come off the chicken coop. The fresh water I put out this morning for the chickens has, by 1pm, frozen solid.


I guess I had better get cracking on turning these into gloves, scarf, hat and socks.


And this into a knitting bag.

Blimey, that's one big-assed tree!! Thank crunchie it didn't hit the house (that's one 2am wake up call you could do without!).

Brrrr about the chicken water. Poor thirsty chickens, you'll have to buy them a thermos chicken water holder and give them their water warmer :)

Can't wait to see the scarf (you'll probably be finished before me - It seems to be slow going on mine). That knitting bag fabric is lush. Love the colours.
