Hello winter!

Out here on the Solway Firth. minus 2 and car frozen this morning. Dense fog and ***** cold as we got out to sea, but now the sun has burned through and its glorious. Hello winter, whatever happened to summer and all those things I was going to get round to doing this year?

Sure am. Having built up a business here, I thought I'd ditch it, move to the other side of the world and start all over again! Bloody stupid thing to do really!
