Your just too kind kiwgf

Just had Bramble out for a walk, nothing going to move here for some time, roads have been opened by a JCB with a bucket on the front that's fine for the tractors that they are using to get to work but it pads the snow down and leaves an couple of inches of hard pack snow that you can't stand on let alone try to drive a car.
Ended up on my idiot of course, man's best friend came running back to check me out, strange tho when your lying on your back gently moving limbs to see they are still all in one piece, sloppy licks are not exactly what's required but it's the thought that counts as they say.

The wind has been blowing up drifts of snow that have closed roads around the country.

So many I daren't add up the numbers. However, there are advantages to living in the wilds of the frozen North a couple of miles from one of the great bikers' routes.

Now the snow has gone I hope the temperatures are on the rise and heavy rain will give the roads a good rinse so I can soon have a little tootle.
