No snow

Wales, Cornwall all had snow. We didn't. Northumberland had a beautiful clear and then rain. Now the forecast is for snow on Monday and I am praying the same thing will happen -- mainly because I hate driving in the snow.
Liz Fielding who is a writer I very much admire has started a blog and she also has a must buy book, The Marriage Miracle out this month. From the sounds of it, it is a three tissue box weepie. Read the extract. It sounds like just the thing to treat myself with.
Anyway, I am going to WHS this morning and checking to see if they have put out the HMB early as is their wont. The problem with popular authors and WHS in Hexham, unless you are quick, they are gone. sold out. What that says about Hexham I am sure I don't know but it does make me buy my favourites promptly.
Hexham has won the Favourite Market town 2005. I could be mean and say that I can't understand why. Familiarity breeds contempt. But I know many people have worked very hard to win this award and Hexham has improved over the last few years. As I live in the area, and have no plans to leave and in fact could not think of a more pleasant place to live, I suppose it is my favourite market town as well. Now if they could just get the hospital sorted out....

I miss snow. We don't get very much of it in southern Virginia, sadly. I like it best, though, when I don't have to drive in it. :)

I have Liz's book. It is haunting me. I am not reading it until I have this full ms out the door. It is my reward! Looking forward to it though.
