The first day of February brought a welcome and long overdue change in the weather. The gales had finally blown so fiercely from the north that they had chased most of the clouds away. The arctic wind was still bitter, and the shadows were long and cold, but at last the land was bathed in light and colour again.

The winds had also brought a wonderful new friend to stay with Algy. A little black teddy with a fluffy middle, sent by Algy’s lovely friend snirg-fundstuecke, had travelled all the way from Germany in order to see the world. So when the sun came out, Algy lost no time in showing his new friend some of the beautiful views around his home.

Algy hopes that the new month will bring some sunshine to you all, and perhaps even a lovely new friend :)) xoxo
