Feast day of St Winwaloe

St Winwaloe ( or Winnold), founder of a Breton monastery and mentioned in an English proverb forecasting stormy weather on this day;"First comes David, next comes Chad*, then comes Winnold, roaring like mad"

*Yesterday, March 2nd, was the feast day of St Chad.

Well, no stormy weather here at the moment- bright and fresh out there, bit of wind, although it is snowing and gales further up the country. Lots to do today, but the kettle beckons first I think. Sewing, make a card, tidying and cleaning in the kitchen, including the mucky floor, bathroom, sitting room...................I'm sure I'll squeeze a bit of knitting in somewhere, though!
