Enjoying The Dry Weather in Alton

After days of rain the weather has taken a turn for the better and we've been getting lots of dry, cold and sunny days in Alton.  We really enjoy the outdoors (when it's dry!) so it's been great to wrap up warm and get outside.  It's been pretty chilly here until mid morning and by mid afternoon it's started to turn cold again.  So, first thing and last thing we've been doing indoor jobs getting ready for what we hope will be a busy B&B season.  Then in the middle of the day we've spent some time outside doing jobs or sometimes just taking a walk.


These are a couple of photo's that we've taken lately.  We don't remember cutting our grass before in February.  The grass was looking a bit long, the weather was sunny and dry so we thought why not get the mower out?  So we did!

MALT TIP: Get outside, fresh air makes you feel great!
