Realities of winter work in Oatlands

Sun up at about 7.30am sun down 4.50 pm. This introduces a new meaning the working outside while itś light.

You cant start till itś defrosted and after 3.30 it starts the cycle starts again. Sunny days are a buzz of activity. Gray or rainy days are indoors.

Fires are a must. Drafts and insulation sudenly move to the top of any work list. Unless it means opening up the house to the weather.

In winter you just don get as much done and plans are flexible....
