Really, I have, and it’s up there in marigold for all to see. Not having received any calendars for Christmas, I am most thrilled to have won this one, and many thanks to Dave (not you, Dave, Dave).
We did take our friend to lunch to the Yacht Club and looked out at the yacht basin. You can see it yourself if you look here – http://www.rnsyc.net/news.php – excuse me doing a proper linky but, just in case they check referrals, I think I’ll retain a hint of anonymity here. It’s worth copy’n’pasting though, as there’s a Live Webcam which updates every minute. I should warn you that at present there is little to see but twinkly mooring lights and a large edifice which is an oil rig site under construction, which will eventually be towed out to its destination, so it might be better to try again during daylight hours.
The temperature was zero all day and the forecast is more snow. However, I’m pleased to say that the pavements of Yagnub are impressively well gritted. It was a good thing I went in this morning to check prices, because sprout stalks, aubergines and cauliflowers had all come in from the wholesaler at more than yesterday’s retail price. Eileen was very busy all day and I should think she’s tired out tonight. The Sage was just locking up when an anxious man came up wanting potatoes, so he opened up the shop again and sold him some. Occasionally, local shops hold more appeal than supermarkets several miles away.
