A new beginning...

In the ten days or so which have passed since I last posted, my faithful Toshiba laptop - which served me very well for over seven years - finally gave up the ghost and stopped working completely, hence (partially) the recent hiatus.

Anyway, so catastrophic was the collapse of my old machine, that I was left with no alternative other than to 'mend it with a new one' as my grandfather used to say.

So, this offering is the first with my new Acer number; it will not be the last, as I feel a post coming on later this weekend vis-a-vis the putative referendum on Scottish independence...

As Gary Glitter once said (before he was unmasked and jailed as a serial paedophile) it's good to be back.

Welcome back Sire.

I think you are in either Yorkshire or East Lancs. Unless you've been having a lot more rain than I have (Northumberland coast), you'll be getting a hosepipe ban in the not too distant future.

But it's a lovely spring we're all having this year. As if nature is making it up to us after that bitter winter.

You are spot on, Monty. We are lucky enough to live in the beautiful Ribble Valley, which is in the east of Lancashire as it is now composed.

But having had an April during which barely a drop of rain fell on us - my lawns were beginning to go brown - this month has brought rain on a virtually daily basis.

So as you say, the hosepipe ban can be only a matter of weeks away!
