But not lonely. I had an email from a neighbour who has been away, asking me to go down to their house (we hold each others' keys) and turn on their central heating, as they will be back tomorrow. As I walked through the hamlet of 8 houses I realised that I am the only human here - all the cars are gone and the houses are dark. There is not a person within two miles of me. The stars are coming out, the snow is beginning to melt and it is beautiful in the twilight. I am not afraid, but it is a strange feeling. I got a big welcome whinny from Maisie in the stable though as I walked back in the gate!
