Soooo..... if you're reading this from within the Staffordshire area (UK), then I may owe you an apology.
It's possible that the sudden change from the gorgeous sunny weather of the last few days to the Narnia-like cold and wet of today is my fault. This is what happens when you sing Christmas carols while you work and pray for it to be a little cooler. So *shuffles feet and tries not to make eye contact* I'm very sorry...
On the bright side, 231 days till Christmas! Yay!
