Sun, snow, showers?

Belated good wishes to everyone for Easter. The weather, of course, is behaving quite normally for a bank holiday weekend. Yesterday we went over to Bradford to see Elder Son and family. Here, it had been pouring down while I was out for my walk but stopped as soon as I got home again. (Yes, perfect timing as always!) On our journey over to Yorkshire, we had sunshine at our end and snow on the hills near the other end and...a huge chunk of cold!
Today Elder Daughter is coming from Liverpool for lunch here before her trek back to snowy Sheffield. Younger Daughter in Newcastle, however, reported last night that the weather where she is was fine, no trace of snow.
So all this rambling is really to conceal the fact that I actually don't have anything to tell you. Life is uneventful and, anyway, it's British to talk about the weather and, given the variety we've had this weekend, it's understandable - even if the weather isn't - if you see what I mean.
Ah well, have a good day, everyone.

  1. I think what you DID tell us is that you have four children - - and I didn't know that! I knew you had some but wasn't sure how many. This post is like one of those old-fashioned puzzles - - How Many Children Has Jennyta?

  5. It's always nice when you spend loadsamoney on a sunshine holiday and discover that those left back in Blighty have had rain, snow, floods or hurricanes.
