Evening all! Schofield has been closed with flu! Like actual real flu, so no ‘you’ve got a cold then’ because I am devoid of a sense of humour which proves it is flu! Anyway, the Pips must be Pipped! So here we are. It seems that there is no other reason for the month December other than Christmas Day, at least in my house. I’m not complaining because I love Christmas with the same enthusiasm as my daughters. Suitably in the mood let’s start with this poem that comes around every year…


Whose woods these are I think I know.

His house is in the village though;

He will not see me stopping here

To watch his woods fill up with snow.


My little horse must think it queer

To stop without a farmhouse near

Between the woods and frozen lake

The darkest evening of the year.


He gives his harness bells a shake

To ask if there is some mistake.

The only other sound’s the sweep

Of easy wind and downy flake.


The woods are lovely, dark and deep,

But I have promises to keep,

And miles to go before I sleep,

And miles to go before I sleep.


Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening By Robert Frost.
