Last christmas-but-one we spent some time at my brother’s house in the New Forest. He and his wife have a lovely rambling cottage that they’ve restored over many years. It’s a small-holding with, at various times, sheep, chickens, horses, cats and a dog. We don’t often see them but we always have a good time when we visit. This time we spent an evening outdoors enjoying their outdoor pizza oven. Leona’s a good chef and made lovely pizzas and we sat shivering and enjoying beer underneath the dark sky, staring into the dancing flames and feeling content.
