Yesterday I returned after a very brief visit to the UK. I left Malaga in the pouring rain on Saturday. My flight to Bristol was delayed two and a half hours. The reason given was that the pilot of the incoming flight slipped on the snow at Bristol Airport injuring himself so another pilot had to be found. The weather in England never got above freezing and is unlikely to for a while. Yesterday morning my return flight from Bristol was delayed for one and a half hours. This time it was because there was a problem starting the planes engines and it had to be de-iced twice. At Malaga it was still pouring with rain and as I sit at my home near Loja today the rain continues. At least it is not cold but it is unusually wet for November.
I ought to show people living in Spain what they are missing so on Sunday I braved the elements and took some photos of the snow. The other photo, to add a bit of colour, is of our seven year old granddaughter Izzy outside the Co-Op supermarket in Long Ashton on Sunday afternoon. Behind her is a giant poster of salad produce in one of the windows – Digby.
