Dear weather forecasters, Well, it hasn’t quite been the white-out blizzard conditions that you forecast for my area, although it is a bit on the cool side and ice has had to be scraped off cars this morning. I think you will find that there are a lot of very disappointed school children in many parts of the country because you had raised their hopes that the snow was going to be bad enough to close their schools. I know that you tend to give the ‘worst case scenario’ picture so that there is not a repeat of the occasion in mid October 1987 when we were told, categorically, that there was no storm on its way and there then followed one of the worst storms on record, but you really over-egged it this time.
Dear supermarket vegetable departments, Why are turnips/swedes individually wrapped in shrink-wrap plastic these days? They already have their own skin which we can remove before cooking. None of the other large veg/fruit is individually wrapped – or are you just breaking us in gently? Are we soon going to get individually shrink wrapped potatoes, leeks, carrots, bananas etc?
Dear skin and nails, How much moisturising do you need? I seem to be using endless amounts and you still feel dry.
Dear fellow bloggers, I’m slowly catching up with you all – you seem to have been very busy writing posts since the beginning of December and there’s so much to read!
Dear Princes Square, Glasgow, I thought your decorations were lovely – much better in the flesh than a photo can show.
