Puncture in the car. The "tyre pressure warning" message is usually a false alarm but out with the pressure gauge and... blast it. Limped slowly to a local garage as there was still a reasonable amount of psi left and a nail was spotted, tyre off, plugged, back on and we were on our way again 15 minutes later, just 15 lighter which was lucky.

After a few teasingly warm days, winter has returned with s*** in the forecast for later on today into Wednesday.
I suppose that means I live in a s***hole part of the country.

Snow, the other 4 letter 'S' word this winter.

Please note that I in no way support the indefensible weather remarks made by Donald Trump in the past.
The romance part of our relationship is over however this is not a cold weather parting of the ways.
I’m going to stand by him and the family in terms of trying to put his life back together.
Donald has been devastated by this.
Any calls for me to step down have come from people who for some time have been trying to undermine winter weather in any case.



I'll get me coat.

Bill, I do hope your leg mends soon as you clearly need to get out a bit more.

Our latest television satellite dish was installed by a genius who decided not only install it on a pitched roof but up near the peak and close to the center of the house.
It's now covered with snow, so no tellie until it melts as it can only be reached by climbing on to the roof.
Of course by then it will have melted off the satellite as well.
