And we have opted to stay put - for now anyway. We were going to move off this morning at 9.30 but a look out of the porthole at the teeming rain persuaded me to pick up the phone and call NB Matilda Rose - "We're not going in this are we? - (Subtle or what?) - and the predictable answer came back - "No let's hold off and see what the weather does."
So fire lit, heating on, cup of tea to hand, I will watch the wet stuff outside, from the inside for a wee while.
