Warm, wet and windy!

 That was the weather on Monday (3rd) when we had a lovely visit from George's sister Di and hubby Paul.
The rain was very heavy at times interspersed with patches of blue sky; sometimes blue sky on one side of the stream and dark rain clouds on the other ... so we saw a couple of rainbows during the day.  It was good to spend some time with Di and Paul as they will be moving from the area in the next week or so and we'll miss their company which we've enjoyed immensely over the past three winters.  We wish them happiness in their new home.
 Tuesday dawned coldy coldy! Only 2°c, with a hard frost ...

but the sky soon brightened although the temperature didn't rise very much.

We took a three hour bus ride (two buses each way) towards Aylesbury to keep an appointment to have an excess of wax (sorry if that's too much information!) removed via micro suction from my ears as most doctors' surgeries no long offer any type of service for this affliction!  We arrived early and I was soon seen, the actual procedure only taking a few minutes.

 We caught the bus back to High Wycombe and had a wander around the shops before picking up a few essentials from Tesco; it was getting dark as we heading for home.

A long day, but useful obviously!

Ah, I see you've had some frost too. Yes, winter is here and I have a heavy cold to go with it :)
