These snowdrops were photographed on the weekend and show that even up north in Northumberland spring is on its way! Great news! Are you planning your trip north soon? Have you decided that the time has come to take a crack at Hadrians Wall?
Apparently Monday 20th January is our most miserable day of the year, (known as Blue Monday) so I found time to smile at the new spoof website which is UKIP Weather, which was set up in response to some bizarre comments by one of their councillors about the flooding problems: if you have not listened to it I urge you to do so; it is genuinely very funny; you will never listen to the Shipping Forecast in the same way again. http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2014/01/19/ukip-shipping-forecast-gay_n_4628625.html
