Oh, I do Love to Be Beside the Seaside

Gah, it's getting ridiculously close to Christmas now isn't it...Carol singers, hot toddies, roasted chestnuts and lashings of snow are some of the traditions which will be passing me by as per. A white Christmas would be a welcome change, especially since all that the weather seems capable of recently is rain and gale force winds. We've been luckier round these parts than the North of the country...poor Cumbria (of the Lake District fame) had something like 12 inches of rain in a day last week which led to all kinds of flooding shenanigans, the town centre was under 8ft of water at one point, road bridges have collapsed and damage no doubt into the millions cost wise...Apparently the floods was a once in a 1000 years kinda deal, which I'm sure is a great comfort to those now homeless and jobless and what's the forecast for the rest of this week....I'll give you a clue...starts with 'r' ends with 'n' and has a bucket full of H2O in the

At least some people have been having fun in the 60+mph decide

And I ventured out yesterday in the gap between squalls to check out whether it was worth having a dip.

Oooh, some of the best kite surfing in the world is about 30 minutes from our house. Sometimes you can see 40 or more out on the river together. They're very cool to watch (and catch some serious air!)
