It’s rather depressing having a birthday at the beginning of January. It’s so close to Christmas and the days are so short, dark and cold. However, we made the very best of things yesterday with a trip to Long Melford where we spent a couple of happy hours poking around antique shops in search of bits of furniture for our cottage. We then drove along the country lanes to Aldeburgh on the Suffolk coast. The sun was shining but it was bitterly cold.
The wonderful thing about winter is that you get magnificent sunsets and the colours in the sky were lovely. I often envy my husband with his summer birthday but I always try to make the very best of my Twelfth Night one!
