Lastest Post - Sprinter has arrived!
January 24, 2016

Yes,we knew it might happen,the unpredictable weather pattern has now created a new season veering from exceptionally mild and damp to bitterly cold and wet!

The signs of `nature are now appearing with not only snowdrops in full bloom but also the yellow heads of daffodils beginning to appear along the hedgerows and in our gardens….and we’re only in January.

Saturday March 19th is the official start of Spring and for Winter it’s the 22nd December ,the winter solstice, when the sun reaches its lowest point in the sky at noon, marked by the shortest day. However, we are now forced to invent a new season called Sprinter!

No need for heavy coats, scarves or gloves somedays and our heating bills have benefited by this change in weather and the lower commodity cost. No wonder Saudi Arabia is raising its taxes as its budget deficit is within touching distance of $100 billion!

Some mornings though it’s so icy that it’s dangerous to drive up Furze Hill Lane. On ringing the Council, the response was…

“We can’t clear the roads because we’ve run out of grit.”

So I said…”Hmm, I can’t send you a cheque for my Council Tax because I’ve run out of stamps!”

The best antidote to the current weather is to retain a sense of humour!

See you in February!
