As long as Sunday lasts (ten)

On the tenth day of the New Year, shortly after midnight it started to rain. It rained and rained, and when we woke at seven it was still raining. The rain ticked against the windows and the wind gained intensity and at daybreak, the rain turned to sleet and snow.

There was nothing for it except to light a fire and relax all day, after Miss L had pancakes and strawberries and the birds were fed. 

I still have Christmas decorations to put away and laundry to do, and the breakfast dishes pined in the sink, but I have the new Philippa Gregory and so as long as the wind blows and Sunday lasts, I can’t be bothered.
