Sunshine and snow

Posted: Sat 14th Jan

Life is good It's a wonderful crisp, sunny, snowy day here at The Watermill. The baristas are working to a soundtrack of mellow jazz and the coffee smells fantastic. People stamp the snow off their boots as they come in and either go down for a cup of something warming or upstairs for a wander through the gallery or set about having a serious browse among the books. A customer is in a comfy chair between the poetry section and Thrillers having a quiet read. Life is good!!
