It's been cold!

We have been hit by a 'weather bomb' this week. Those who live in climes where more extreme weather is a frequent occurrence may scoff, but we are in a coastal temperate area, not affected by the swings of continental extremes.

So this week's cold weather has been a 'bracing' experience. Having lived in this house since 1991, I can't recall snow like we saw this week on the nearby hilltops.

And I wasn't the only one taken by the changed landscape - it made news stories and a lot of photos were published.

And, to cap it all off, Desiree is in Vietnam at the moment, sweltering in 30-40 degree temperatures!
