Good morning anyone who's about
Clari I hope you're safely tucked up and snoozing!
Fidget, what a PITA all those breakdowns happening at once!
Later this morning we'll be going down to Suffolk - hopefully the weather will be fine and Pa will be well enough for us to take him to the British Legion Parade and Silence at the war memorial and place a cross for his youngest brother killed over Germany. This is usually something my son does each year with his Grandpa, and we just tag along, but son has a really nasty cold and sore throat and Pa is very susceptible to chest infections so son is going to stay away today. If the weather's grim or Pa's not up to going along, we'll watch the wreath laying at the Cenotaph with him and Ma.
On the way back we usually make a short detour via the pub and Pa has a good single malt (with his horrid thickener in it). Ma used not to be keen on the stop at the pub, but since I introduced her to hot chocolate with a splash of brandy she quite enjoys it!
The rain is tipping down here at the moment, but the Met Office website for East Anglia says "Cloud and rain soon clearing away from Norfolk and Suffolk. Otherwise, a dry day with bright or sunny spells after any early fog patches clear. On the cool side but with light winds. Maximum Temperature 12 °C." so fingers are very crossed!
