Having taken advantage of my mother-in-law's free baby-sitting service on Saturday, I returned the favour last night by taking her on a luxury shopping trip to Asda. She needed a few things for Christmas, and I needed to keep on the right side of Lisa, so the deal suited us both. Unfortunately, having driven her to the nuts and crackers, and watched her go off her trolley for an hour, I feel strangely tired today. It's slightly exhausting trying to persuade a 77-year-old on a state pension that she doesn't really need to spend thirteen quid on a bottle of vodka for the lady who cleans her sheltered housing block.

That was an argument I lost. So in the absence of anything more energetic to say, here's a photo I took first thing in the morning from the window of our living room...

Living Room with a View
It was actually last Wednesday. This morning I couldn't stand upright for the wind.

Perhaps your mother-in-law DID scoop the triple roll-over on the lottery.  You might ALL be getting a bottle of Vodka for Christmas.

Well, I can tell you that I'm NOT spending £13 on a bottle of vodka for  the woman who does the cleaning round here!!
