Some real snow last night, all of three inches. By the time I had driven into Aylesbury there was none. We must have caught the edge of the snow because the M40 was closed going North.
Well not quite Burns Night, but for the Plough and Anchor, it was Burns Night.
Excellant meal was hosted by Paul Ring of the Plough and Anchor. The menu was Scottish, but was not all Haggis, Neaps and Tatties. We though did all get the chance for some Haggis even if we had not ordered it for the main course.
Next day was rather quite for me, rather too much Lagavulin the night before.
Been a lovely day today. Sun shone all day, and even though the wind was blowing from the North East it was not that cold.
Had been invited to partcipate in some paragliding, but alas the guys were here to fix the hot tub which sprung a leak at the weekend. Instead waited for them, had a pint at the pub, downloaded some clip art of Scots men for the pub menu (Burns night) and had a big fire burning up all the rubbish wood from the grave yard, and cleared up some of the rubbish around the garden pond.
I could be a house husband anyday!
Went to Oxford to have lunch at Raymond Blanc’c, Petit Blanc Brasserie. We elected for the fixed price menu and had a very reasonable meal. The service was very attentive.
After the warm weather and the floods, the cold arrived for the weekend. Now at last it has started to snow, although by the end of the day 3 mm is not a great deal.
Lovely to sit in the hot tub in the dark with your head freezing cold!
