Well it's arrived! Happy New Year everyone! I hope it's a good one for all of you!
I don't have any photos to share at this time. There should have been some of Coldharbour Mill today, but when we got there it was closed. O think the weather in some places further south than us have had worse weather. On the drive down we noticed piled up snow! Ours finally disappeared December 23rd. The mill had a few fundamental problems, there was a burst pipe in the cafe, rather unhelpful for making drinks and washing up! Also a frozen leat which means no water to power the waterwheel for driving the mill! So no mill trip!
However, there was a good lesson in how much people matter in all this. If we had met my friend at the mill,we would have walked round looking at machinery, watched the steam-powered engines working, but I don't think we would have chatted so much! We found a nearby pub, had a bite to eat and chatted for about four hours! It was a good time. I think that's what the phrase 'quality time' means!
