Further proof, if any were needed, that the leader of the so-called ‘free world’ has become a self-parody. Grace under pressure this is not.
Our frosty garden this morning. It’s still only November, but we’re already having very cold weather, down to -7C (19F) last night. I don’t remember it ever getting this cold this early in the winter. There’s been lots of speculation that we’re in for a harsh winter, like this extract from an article in the Sunday Times last month:
“The Met Office says there is a two in three chance of its predicted cold dry winter coming true, with fears it could be as bad as the winter of 1962-63, the worst in the past 50 years.
Britain froze from December 1962 to the beginning of March 1963. Ice floes on the Thames knocked against Tower Bridge in London, the sea froze out to half a mile at Herne Bay, Kent, and a 36-hour blizzard with 70mph gusts of wind buried much of western England in snow with 20ft drifts.”
Time to buy some new longjohns, I think!
Charlie with a selection of his best Lego creations. He’s really good at following the instructions to build cars, planes and spaceships, etc. But he’s even better at coming up with his own designs such as these. I think at that age I was struggling to build simple log cabins with my Lincoln logs!
