As we begin another decade,  hard to believe that the beginning of the last one was fraught with the “dangers and warings of impending doom”. The Millenium Bug threatened all kinds of disasters worldwide and everyone, like the Boy Scouts, had to be prepared.  Now the threats to our computers are more to do with viruses and hackers than the date formats.  If the last 10 years have been the “noughties”, will this new decade be the “tennies” ?

A quiet month, everyone back in routine. We have some specials birthday this year. Elsie was 95 in January, Nellie will be 90 in February.  Been lucky with the weather in Hyde, none of the extreme snowfall that has brought areas of Scotland to a halt.  The white stuff is pretty to look at but I prefer the white stuff on the beach!
