Little Domesday

DUE TO BREXIT NEGOTIATIONS, SERVICES HAVE BEEN WITHDRAWN UNTIL NORMALITY RETURNS IN THE UK.

I didn't know (or have forgotten) that there were two Domesday Books. The first one is called "The Little Domesday Book" & covered only East Anglia but was very detailed including the number of livestock. The main book published in 1086 was not quite as transparent.

"The book is metaphorically called by the native English, Domesday, i.e., the Day of Judgement. For as the sentence of that strict and terrible last account cannot be evaded by any skilful subterfuge, so when this book is appealed to on those matters which it contains, its sentence cannot be quashed or set aside with impunity. That is why we have called the book "the Book of Judgement", ... not because it contains decisions on various difficult points, but because its decisions, like those of the Last Judgement, are unalterable."

Not sure why I connect the above with events in the House of Commons this week.

On waking this morning & enjoying my first cup of "Cornwall Assam Ceylon Tea", I managed through half closed eyes to see there was no sign of any snow that had been forecast but the strong winds were still blowing. Twenty minutes later, everything was covered in 2cms of snow!

However, in the course of the day, the strong wind did melt most of the snow and by the time Luna & I set off for the evening walk, it was dry. We headed into the forest to get away from the +1°C strong wind and then at the halfway turning point, a snowstorm hit us. The photo was taken just as we got back into the shelter of the car.
