Gone shopping.

I've been a bit quiet of late. Not much on the blogging front. I have spent the last week  with a paintbrush and a grouting tool and a tub of tile adhesive. But the shower room is now complete - and  pictures will  follow.
today has been wonderful. Big, bright bold and sunny.
And it's time to do the weekly shop. I think I must  have one of the best drives to the shops ever.
We've had a little bit of snow recently. But I want to reassure family and friends who email and phone us,  that we are not stuck in the frozen north! We do have the sunshine from time to time and the roads are passable. Today the 'pothole menders'  were out in force. The shops are stocked and the shelves are full - apart from vacuum packed chestnuts I noticed were missing today on the shelves in Tescos! People must be stocking up  in case they can't get out to the shops between now and next Christmas!
As I drove home again, I listened to the radio, and the presenter said what a horrible gloomy day it was and looking at the weather map he could see the only place with some sun appeared to be in Dorset. The rest of the country was covered in cloud.  I should just like to correct that and point out that it was also jolly nice here too!

Wow! What a fantastic drive to the shops! Its so beautiful! When the pothole menders are finished in your area, please could you send them down to Guildford/Woking? We really need them here!
Take care. Love Di xx

I do like it when you take us shopping - almost like going on holiday!

Really stunning! I feel as if I've been breathing crisp Highland air just looking at your photos. I hope the chestnuts weren't key to your plans for the week.

Hello Christine. It's ok I just won't mention to our guests the venison stew should have chestnuts in it!

I love your deep window sills and that view. That view!
