I am late putting on a post tonight because it is University Chall enge night and I always watch that and keep a tally of how many questions I can answer (8 tonight, about par for the course). Given five minutes to think about my answer I could probably double that number but those young brains are too quick for me - and any chemical or ancient history questions pass me by. Quite often the ones I answer are too easy for them (good example was a question a few weeks ago about 'who was furnished and burnished by Aldershot sun' - a starter question about which nobody had the slightest idea. It was, of course, Miss Joan Hunter-Dunne in the Betjamen poem (far too low brow for our teams on tele).
I watched The Budget earlier and decided that it was all pie in the sky given the stage we are at with Brexit. If there is no agreement then I suspect things will change dramatically. I have reservations about budgets anyway - they never seem to make a lot of difference.
Very heavy frost here this morning. My newly-planted polyanthus were flat on the ground and white over. Out came the sun and half an hour later they were flourishing again. My dog walk had to be late this morning as all the paths were slippery - the state of things to come I suppose.
Until tomorrow. Might even get a photograph of my sitting room on.
