Yesterday saw the English winter at its most normal that is a bit of this and that but nothing too extreme.   I understand that recently it has been 20 plus degrees celsius below in eastern Germany, which by any standards is cold. by means of a contrast east Leicestershire yesterday sunk to minus 2 or 3 which isn ‘t really cold at all.  Well I say that it felt cold enough and I found myself scuttling back to warmth of the car  quick enough and saw us quickly retired the cavernous restaurant at the  Gates Garden Centre – very nice cakes BTW.

So that was day two of the Painting the Town Red project (I have decided to call my project the Ironstone Benefice)  I am working on with my good friend David Manley and  seem to be rattling off the villages and yesterday found us in the true ironstone countryside of the far east of Leicestershire.   Next time?  Well I’ll just have to wait and see.
