Blogging the world from the middle of Norfolk.

Just watched and listened to the Hutton report over lunch and then the prime Minister making his speech to parliament afterwards.That is one relieved Tony!!!!! No wonder there are signs of a tiny bald spot appearing.............he must have been worried sick over the last months.

At the same time there was a sudden blizzard and now we have a really decent covering of snow. It is so beautiful out there but a bitter wind makes walking unpleasant so it's nice to stay indoors for a change and drink mugs of coffee and tea...now that was thoughtless....why didn't I get some brandy this morning too????

I noticed that The Office and Ricky Gervais got awards at the Golden Globes.........Many, many Congratulations! it's so good to know that friends around the world can appreciate the squirming humourous horror of it all! I gave it as a gift to my son in Germany and my American son-in-law so I really hope it made them smile.

Whoever thought that trucks have curtains!I don't think I ever noticed curtains when we used to hitchhike around Europe............Oh it was so great to be given a lift on one of those vehicles and truckdrivers were terrific............I bet they still are!

Winter descends once more on Norfolk....................although the sun is shining brightly, the temperature is diving out there and we are in for some bitterly cold nights and more wind over the next few days. Lunch today at the Indian restaurant will mean huge consumption of 'hot stuff' to get the 'internal' heating system ready for the big freeze! My American friend in New Hampshire would probably laugh at what we call 'cold' but what about my friend in Spain who never sees frost in Winter?

Hurray for Mr Gates who promises no more spam inside of two years.....................I wait to be amazed!
