Finally we have a working sauna and it is great! After a hard afternoon dog sledding yesterday it was wonderful to christen the sauna! We put too much wood in it and had to resort to opening the door!!! We are very glad that we invested the little extra into buying a glass fronted  stove as this provides all the light and looks lovely at the same time.

Camera fun......

I saw a tutorial on the internet about taking photos of the stars, so Fionn the WWOOFer and I delved into the manual settings of our cameras. Neither camera is like the all singing and dancing cameras on the tutorial but we had a go anyway.

A day of extremes....... Vikings......electronica.......skiing....

The day started with an invasion of the Vikings ...... This photo shows our WWOOFers wearing their home made Viking costumes down by the river. We were trying to get some good shots with the sledge and an old wooden bucket found in the barn.

Yesterday we finally got some decent snow! We were working down in the forest again and had started earlier than we normally do, 8am, so that we could beat the snow. It took us an hour to finish stacking up the wood and just as we were moving the final log, the snow started!
