Let's hope there's no more rain

 The banks have broken near the rugby club this morning, let's hope we get no more rain, the fields have hardly had enough time to recover from the last flood.

Christmas trees are up

Bungy corded to the roof rack Lampoon style

They both made it back in one piece

Lock down is over

Welcome to Tier 3.  

Let's hope it has the desired effect and brings down the infection rate across the whole of Kent.  It we get assessed again in a couple of weeks with any luck they'll shift us down into Tier 2 so we can eat out again.  Still no meeting up with friends indoors though.

Wine and cheese tasting

 To help out one of our local pubs we did a virtual wine and cheese tasting class last Saturday. 

One of the wines we were tasting was the same as some of the wine in my latest delivery. Chapel Down Flint Dry. Who knew I had such good taste?

Here's Arwen enjoying the fire

Here's April enjoying the red. 

I think we spend too much at John Lewis and Waitrose


It's almost singed off by John himself.

My brother's Christmas present has arrived

 He knows me so well.

I've bought him a fancy knife.

I don't really miss the commute

 I received a Whatsapp message from Shaheen this morning about Shaheen being envious of people that didn't have to commute.  

I sent him this

It still takes me an hour but I don't have to sit next to an overly fat person that decides to sit in the middle of a 3.

He says that his trains have been getting progressively busier each week.  My team is due to go into London next week for a get together but I told them I would not be able to as i'm in tier 3.  It would have been okay if I said no anyway but it's nice to have a little back up.  It would cost me money too and i'd rather not do that.

We've also just had it confirmed at work that tier 3 staff are not allowed in the office till March so that's nice too.  I doubt i'll ever meet my team in person.
