You know it's not often you can find Aussie-style "stubby" bottles on sale here in the UK. Must have been imported for all those ex-pat antipodeans, in time for their national day.

It's About Time

Thought I'd share this image of my back garden, taken this morning. Although only a small smattering, snow has at last returned to the area. More is forecast for later this week. Doesn't it look lovely?

Finally got round to seeing the 2012 Doctor Who Christmas Special "The Snowmen" last night. Does that sound really lax of me? Can't wait for the series to return this Spring and of course the 50th anniversary this coming November.

Firstly happy new year to you all.
