It was snowing - well, a few flakes that lasted all of two minutes - when I got up, now it's light sleety rain showers.  Still cold.

Similar to yesterday but it seems to be even colder.

I'll try that again!

It's glorious here, very windy though.  Which is a good thing, because the bin men dropped a black bag and all the light-weight stuff that would usually find its way to my garage is being blown elsewhere.

I'll try that again!

The binmen never pick up anything they've dropped, do they?  steam

When it's windy here on bin days, husband always weighs down our recycling in the box with a brick or two on the top of everything, so bits and pieces don't get blown away.  We appear to be the only ones who think to do that though.....ponder

It's lovely here, a bit of a chilly breeze but nowhere near as strong as was forecast.

The wind isn't as strong as I was expecting and it is somewhat warmer outside, I am enjoying the sunshine.  Our bin men will sweep up things like cigarette ends if they drop out of a bag but they don't bother for sweet wrappers or other papers.  Our recycling is done in blue boxes for glass, pink sacks for paper, tin, cardboard etc and food and garden waste in a green wheely bin.  The problem is that people are too lazy to tie the black and pink sacks securely.

I'll try that again!

Still dull today, but it did brighten up yesterday, so expect it will later.

Horrible drive back.  Mist, drizzle, rain with some grey, drier periods but quite windy crossing Bodmin Moor.  Slightly better now, although it's still dismal.
