We are some what governed by the weather here on the island. I mean, tis nice at the moment although cloudy, it's warmish. Sometimes it's horrible like a few days ago when I visited The Croft and it threw it down for a while - luckily as I was in the Big Shed.
The wind direction affects the cooking too. The old Rayburn stove sulks with wind in one direction and is an almost uncontrollable blast furnace when in the other. It does rather influence ones cooking!
