Well our flat is very warm, so no need for a log fire (probably be illegal too in central London !!!). We went out for a walk to see what was in the sales -but this was Marylebone High Street, so we were soon scared off by the prices.. Sad to hear you're back at work tomorrow. I'm back next week, which doesn't suit me as I don't get holiday pay being a contractor. Still, tapping away on the computer doesn't cost much, so I think I'll survive

Work? Ah yes, I remember that.....

We were in the UK for nearly six months but managed to arrive back in Spain the middle of November, just before all the snow and ice and freezing temperatures started in the UK.

Our son, who lives in our UK house, usually goes to work on his cycle or walks along the towpath, but he is having to go on the bus as the roads are too bad for cycles/feet. He doesn't drive.

This is in the West Midlands where I believe the snow/ice has not been too bad, so I dread to think what it is like in other parts! (Although I think the coldest temeperature was recorded not far away from us in Pershore).
