The flooding has subsided and for a few dozen in our village it's now the clear up operation and restoration which will take a few months. Luckily we are not affected - thanks for all your kind thoughts.
This afternoon we visited my dad who is a lot better but still getting over the 'flu. He'd been out and bought reduced priced Christmas cakes which was nice - a slice with a coffee!
Afterwards I drove to St Lythans Burial Chamber, a 6000 year old Neolithic construction where the soil once covering it has eroded, whilst Mrs BB sat in the car reading her novel. The sun was going down and I managed to get a star burst looking up over it before it dulled to start sunset.
I worked it out these stones would have seen at least 2,190,000 sunrises and sunsets!
