Traditional Lakeland Farmhouse


Though you might like to see a traditional Lakeland Farm House which isn't far from us. It is where we got our Christmas tree, the place with the lovely reindeer.
The evil cold bug has now passed from me, to teenager and now to my mum. There is so much coughing and snorting going on in this community! At teenager's school carol service two children were sick ( made it interesting!) and you could hardly hear the carols for the deafening hacking and sneezing, and the sound of cough sweet wrappers rustling.
Ah- the spirit of Christmas. Paracetamol, Benylin and strepsils! Baah Humbug!

Beautiful weather! Lovely crisp frost, perfect to wrap up warm and go for a walk in. Glad your feeling a bit better.

Mmm...looks idyllic, Jo. The farmhouse, not the epidemic!

We are all in various stages of being smitten by the bug. We had to postpone Jan's 18th birthday celebrations because we were all too ill for champagne and birthday cake, which shows just how desperate we really were, especially the birthday boy.
Never mind we will celebrate next weekend instead.

sounds like a bit like other half's fortieth celebrations- cancelled due to bad weather.... we are celebrating in the spring instead...

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

The area where you live looks just beautiful, and so Christmas-y!

We have a lot of sickness going around here, too. My son is really sick and I'm just bracing for the rest of us to catch it (potentially in time for Christmas--ack!). I sure hope you feel better soon.

Traditional Lakeland Farmhouse.......freezing bloody cold in the winter..........

Although that one looks like a nice one.....my dad used to be an insurance agent and the stories he told about how some farmers lived........icky!!

Hey Jo,

That farm house is lovely, especially with all the snow around it.

My bug is almost gone, but I still have a bit of a cough, which acts up worse when I'm out somewhere, like this morning in church! UGH! And I am sorry your Mum's got the bug now as well. A bit harder on us older folks.

Wow, 14 followers already. Great going.

Holiday Hugs,

Renie

I'm sorry to hear that everyone is getting sick. Last year I started with the flu on Christmas Eve, here's hoping I don't have a repeat performance. :-(

I love the picture....so warm and cozy looking.
It is the sick time of year...can't avoid it. Unless you stay in a cave, and alone...that would not be fun.
