Light at the end of the tunnel
You would have to have been locked away in a dark room these past few weeks to avoid the inescapable conclusion that we appear to have weathered the storm and turned the corner. (I could carry on clicheing much longer but I think that’s enough). No, I’m not talking about the economy, nor the situation […]
In the bleak midwinter!
Is that it? Was that it? How was it for you? Whatever you think I’m referring to, I was actually talking about Christmas! Why is it that every year we make such a fuss about the festive season? It has to be bigger and better than the previous year, we all have to eat and […]
Ho Ho Ho
It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. Well, how else could I have started this year’s Christmas blog! I think I’ve already mentioned in a previous blog how quickly this year has flown by. But it really does seem to have done. It feels like only a few weeks ago that we were getting […]
Witches and Wizards
We might be enjoying an Indian summer, (and all this after one of the best summers in living memory), but there’s no denying that we are properly into autumn now. It’s dark at 6, and of course next weekend, the clocks go back, so then it’ll be dark by 5. And when the sun does […]

Hot weather dogs!
Having written in my previous blog that the end of the world seemed to be nigh, what with the amazing storms and flash flooding, I think it’s only fair to acknowledge that I was wrong. But I wasn’t the only one. I heard it on good authority that we were going to have a bad […]
Welcome to flaming June, and I don’t mean that in a hot sense! To be fair, May actually hasn’t been too bad weather-wise, and we haven’t seen too many signs of our apparently impending and predicted dreadful summer, payback for our reasonably good summer last year, as if the winter wasn’t bad enough. But now […]

Summer is coming!
It’s that time of year when we are at last seeing the first green shoots of spring, or at least we should be. With Easter being early this year and having had a lot of snow on the ground only a few short weeks ago, it doesn’t really seem that spring like yet. The clocks […]
