It’s wet, grey and miserable

Yes, another typical day in the United Kingdom. When the buzz word (phrase) was global warming we were all looking forward to Mediterranean summers; who cares if the whole of Africa became a desert and the Sahara spread into Southern Europe. It meant that even a trip to Southend would mean a glorious warm day on the beach, followed by drinking too much for a dehydrated body to take and then trashing the joint – club 18-30 would be coming home.

However, what we have now noticed is that global warming was a slightly misleading phrase. The more accurate term is climate change and it seems like the UK is seeing that this year. So far it seems that all we have had is rain. If this weather is a result of climate change then things don’t look quite so nice for us… and we’ll have to keep going to Majorca.

There is an altogether more sinister reason that the weather has been so wet. Perhaps we are in the grip of some voodoo magic being channelled through that dreadful song by Rihanna, as long as she keeps blurting out ‘Umbrella’ we’ll have to keep using them.

It’s a Snow Day

There is singing in the streets as the kids get a day of school. The sky is full of white stuff that falls onto the ground making it difficult to walk. So everyone gets to stay at home and do nothing, even me… oh, I was doing that anyway.

Some snow pics :-)

Looks like the garden furniture will not be needed today. And I think the cold may have got to that pot plant.

The snow is this thick!!!

At least the rabbit’s water bottle was kept warm by one of my socks. On the other hand (or should I say foot) my five toed extremity is not too warm :-)

Time for a nice cup of warm tea I think.

The gray decends again

After a brief cold snap – briefer than the career of Jade Goody – the murky gray has returned to Milton Keynes. It is neither cold not warm, neither bright nor gloomy, simply gray and dull. This certainly has an effect on the ability of this blogger (hey I unwittingly called myself a blogger, best change that before I get ideas above my station) guy to be particularly active. He also has to deal with the fact that the MK DONS after going seven games undefeated have stumbled slightly – this weekend saw them loseWeight Exercise 5-0, oops.

I have added, and will continue to add more bits and pieces to the site, in addition to the witty blogging. First up, is an MK newsfeed to keep you up to date with what is going on – it is time to mashup Milton Keynes (web tech term, not a cooking term).


How I am saddened that some people have been stuck at the major airports around the country, unable to get away from the dank, dark and miserable weather that is currently blighting the UK. It is with a heavy heart that I hear the news that some people are having their winter getaway disrupted, meaning that they have had to endure the grey, fog laden skies for several more hours than they really want to. It is such a shame that they will not have their bones thawed and their clothes dried as soon as they wished, slurping martinis and scotch as their planes soar through the atmosphere creating a carbon footprint the Sasquatch would be proud of.

Envy is a bad thing isn’t it?
