Happy New Year reader.  In case anyone thinks I've been quiet for a couple of weeks my blog page hasn't been working but appears to have been fixed this morning by the nice Yola people.  So here I am back on line.  Facebook and Twitter has been my stand in with silly season profile, a trip to Ullswater and favourite pics of 2016. 
Yesterday ( New Years Day) dawned fine and bright and we took a short stroll around Brough before visiting friends.  With nice boots on I managed a few shots - trying to avoid the muddy areas.  Still got nice boots slightly muddy and note to oneself "In future take nice boots in bag".  Anyway here's the photos:
