I was wandering back down the very steep little lane that serves my little house when I noticed, to my great surprise, that the mill in the valley seems to have come back to life. Since I have been there 6 years now and never once have I seen this, it got me worrying. Then up piped this fellow-me-lad who was mending the gutter on his even-older-than-mine cottage who tells me it's proabably kids setting a fire at the base of the chimney. Well, I suppose if they are going to do it anywhere it might as well be here!!!
It's a nice sight for a few moments to see the smoke drifting from the chimney - but I'm glad it's not every day
