Blog


I hate to play the clich├ęd Brit and blether on about the weather but really - our climate is bonkers. Last week it was 23C in Aberdeen and today most of the North is being scythed by sleet and snow - spare a thought for a brave fellow blogger who even now is holed up in a caravan somewhere on an inclement coast and down to his last beefy Bovril, probably.  Eee.

Meanwhile, I have been distressingly busy with work - in the run up to Easter! It's an outrage!

It'll be rosados all the way come tomorrow night though, and blow winds, I dinnae care.

  1. Cold and wet today, although in the West the last two days have been springlike and lovely. Today is Kinks weather.

  2. Wind would cut you in two up here. Yesterday loads of snow, today the odd flurry. Had to get the fishtail back out, didn't think I would be seeing that again until at least the end of August!

  3. Bonkers, like say. Mind, I've just watched very big trucks flying through the air in Texas on the news, so I guess we have it light, by comparison.

  4. I like the idea of Kinks weather though.

  5. Weather report from down under...........the second month of autumn a sunny 24 degrees with the prospect of Mid 30's by next week.......just showing off now. Oh, by the way, saw the Pogues and the Specials on the same bill last week at a sunny outdoor festival !!!

  6. The Pogues outdoors in the sunshine. It doesn't seem right, somehow.

  7. By the time the Pogues hit the stage it was approaching dark........and by the time they finished it was definitely night time........they were still terrific even if Shane was barely coherent when he spoke. How can you sing magnificently yet barely speak in between songs.....I don't get that.

  8. At least you got him singing magnificently. Oh the horror, the horror, of sometimes I have seen him.

  9. And other times so great I have wept buckets.

  10. And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda had the crowd mesmerized, it was probably the highlight of the ten hour day for me. I guess that song takes on a bit more significance when it's sung under Australian skies
