After an epic journey back to the north-west of England from 150 miles east of Aberdeen after an extra few snowy days (unplanned) offshore, I am now in Bristol (Via Liverpool for The Mediaeval Baebes concert and briefly at home in Chester).
Both The Watershed and Arnolfini are doing mulled cider, most appreciated in this weather.
A quick roving lunch at the meadow on the drive down Sunday afternoon and today started with a fine full breakfast at Source and a quick caffeine fix.
I also at long last have the ingredients for a grey-squirrel casserole, tomorrow will be an interesting day in the kitchen back at home. My rationale is that I might have to control the squirrel population down at the meadow - particularly with a nuttery, heritage varieties orchard and a few hundred young trees being established. I would rather consider a productive method of management that involves me taking an active role in the food chain...
It's trying to snow here, not much, but it's stuck lightly like icing sugar on a cake. A moderate amount of Xmas shopping done - Cabot Circus and the rest of Bristol's streets being bearable on a cold December morning.
I might consider a route home via a stop at Uffington Hill and Oxfordshire.
