No snow here either - not that we often get it - but some heavy squalls of rain.

Realised after lunch that we had theatre tickets for tonight ... 'twas a bit of an effort to get out and do the 17 mile drive to Salisbury, but it was well worth it - really lovely show ... a sort of review - songs based on travelling, and we've both come back humming snatches and glad we went [not like a couple of recent ones where we haven't gone back in after the interval!]

No snow here either, even though it was forecast. Sigh. Finn, hope you feel better after a sleep!

We had snow last night when we did walk-before-bedtime for our dog. But it's all done this morning.

Gosh, Aiison, there was none at all this side of Manchester. We don't live that far from each other, just a few miles, I would have thought.

Sadly, no snow this side of Cheshire. The wind is just picking up now making it feel cold - and miserable. :( About to batten down the hatches!

Still no snow here. My workplace is on fire again though. At least we think it is, we can't find the fire just the smoke and smell.

The much-hated tablecloths are now finished bar the tidying-up stitches.

Much loss of temper and breaking of needles, but no actual loss of life involved.

*Not sure whether to rejoice, or merely feel stressed about the tidying-up work.*

To update, it briefly snowed on Saturday and the fire was never found.

We had some snow here, but there was a lot more in Bradford on Saturday. It's icy here now.

Procrastinating here while I wait for the cherry and apple crumble to cook, I'm still musing over a phone call we had here just before lunch:

Caller: "My name is R and I'm ringing you about your computer!"
Me: "Oh yes?"
Caller: "Did you know that every time you log onto the internet from it you cause radiation [or it may have been irradiation, but either would do, I suspect] to our firm's computers?????"
Me:*best Victor Meldrew manner* "I don't beleeeeve it!"

Unaccountably, she put the phone down at that point, so I never did discover by what remarkable means I was causing radiation (or irradiation) to their computers, nor what she wanted me to do about it, but I suspect that it would have involved me parting with a sum of money...

Makes a change from saying there is a fault on your computer - to which I respond

    'Which one?'
    'The Windows one'
    'They are all running Windows - which version of Windows is running on the faulty one?'

That usually is enough - if they start saying I need to do this or that I ask them to speak more slowly, as I am 'writing it down for my computer people'

I'm thinking of all the fun you could have if you deliberately misinterpreted 'virus' like a flu virus or similar.

That's certainly one to remember, Minim - thanks! In this instance my thoughts were veering towards "Did you say irradiation? But that preserves things - don't you want your computers to last?" My real regret was that SLOC was unavailable to take the call - he's worked in the industry most of his life, and could have strung her along beautifully!

Or in response to radiation 'but it always wears a hat and sunglasses'.

I just got wet because my brolly kept blowing inside out, and if I wasn't so fat then I'd probably have got blown over as well :(. A bit like some of the walks in the early Tyrol books, but without paper dolls or doctors.

Hot drinks?
