Little was I to know that the weather would be appalling whilst I was there, with persistent rain and flooding. Luckily their house is near the top of a hill so I kept my feet fairly dry, but by day three Rob didn't have a dry pair of shoes left to take him to work.
It was very nice to visit them for a few days and see life going on in a different place. Bristol is a fascinating place, but this time I didn't see much of it. I only had one coat and a pair of suede boots with me so I couldn't risk a drenching. We are very used to rain over here and lots of wind because it is an island, but I felt like a bit of pampering.
So now I'm back, I have a bit of catching up to do.
I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving Day with family and friends and a good Christmas to follow. Like me you're probably up to your neck in the preparations already!
