69 mph gale force winds here! This tree is just across the road from my house - fortunately the wind is blowing the other way! I think a lot of people around here are wondering where their bins have blown to - mine are well anchored though☺ Took a load of general waste and cardboard down to the Dump thinking no-one else would venture out in such wind - I was wrong, there was a long queue waiting to enter - obviously other people were thinking the same as me! Shopped in the new Retail Park and had a look at the new Costa Coffee Shop - it looks very pukka - I think it will open this weekend. Haven' heard Peter, Paul & Mary sing for many a year - remember this one well!
