If ‘Brisk’ was a photo challenge theme, my entry would be this morning because brisk begins with brrrrrrr….

We have uber-excellent thermal curtains over all the windows and multiple layers of insulation in all the external surfaces of the Lodge + double glazing on some of the windows (we’re running a rolling replacement programme). The curtains have a secondary effect of blocking out the light which is great for clear full moony nights and daylight saving when the sun comes up at uncivilised times. In winter, however, there is a risk that the lack of light will induce professionally unrewarding sleep-ins so we have a double-glazed skylight in the hallway by the rear bedrooms.

I thought that it seemed a bit dark this morning and here’s why…


…a good 20cm of snow on the skylight, seen here as it started to thunk off the roof – no one questions this morning about the ‘why’ of a steep pitched roof…
