TUESDAY 26th MARCH 2013.

A freezing cold morning and light snow to contend with.  More snow is forecast by those jolly chappies at the Met Office for the remainder of the week.  They must be such fascinating folk to  meet up with at a party?    The additional “action” in the housing market seems to be continuing, despite the weather and I continue to be privileged with Instructions to act as Sole Agents  for some lovely,  and very interesting,  properties,  all over the place.  Just take a peek at my full Register. I am a very lucky man, I know so well. I got along rather well and enjoyed my day.  There were some startling pictures on tv of the snowdrifts and the havoc caused not just on the roads,  which is bad enough,  but the poor farmers with their animals ,  especially the sheep and lambs,  being caught out. I have a few farmer friends and they  are distraught at the loss to their flocks.  Sheep were being buried in the snowdrifts and actually suffocating.   I had a nice tea and spent some time preparing the questions for the Quiz which I will be missing this week and will be taken by Bill Little.   It is my Business Anniversary Drinks Party at the Office  on Thursday evening so I would be in no fit state to go to the quiz!
