Going back to work this week was a bit of a shock to the system! Finn had a boring morning on Tuesday as he couldn't come with me to my farm as the farm dogs get upset there if he is in the car, but we made up for it in the afternoon and this morning when we had our nice little farm on the far side of the Presellis. As you all probably realise by now we love the mountains, especially in winter when there are no sheep about. Yersterday we walked from the carpark on the Haverfordwest road back towards Crymych, usually Finn loves going 'skitterdog' through the boggy pools and getting covered in gooey black mud, but yesterday they were all frozen solid. The local hunt had been out on foot in the morning and we met a couple of people looking for a pair of hounds which had gone missing, as we were walking the hills were ringing with the sound of the horn calling them in, eerie.

This morning we stopped at the same carpark and walked up to the viewpoint on the other side of the road on Foel Eryr.

Therewas lots of slippery ice on the path.

Have we come all that way Mum?

Wait for me.

Look you've dropped something.

I'll fetch it for you.

Here they are

On the way home we stopped to take some pictures from Cardigan Bridge.

Cardigan is only a couple of miles from the sea and the river is tidal here so it must be quite salty. I've never seen it frozen before, although I've been told it froze completely in 1963.
Funny no one has mentioned global warming since New Year!
