Home again, home again safe and sound:)
We went to our once local butcher or tried to. As we crossed over the canal bridge we had to stop with a fallen tree, turned round and another tree had fallen in the minute or two we had gone past. Took half an hour for builders close by to chop up and move one of trees it was so massive. Then as we couldn't get near butchers we headed off to pick up grandsons early from school while still able to get there. We were blocked more than a dozen times with fallen trees. Lucky I knew alternative routes. My DD and her partner were coming home from London, DD couldn't get any trains. Her partner had to drive across London to pick her up, took 2 hours. They decided to try driving home thinking to take A roads as motorways had been closed . They arrived home 10pm very tired and DD had interview this morning for new job.
We arrived home in Scotland around 4 pm very cold sore and tired.
House was cold as there hadn't been any fires since Monday morning. Our friend had lit it this morning but it takes a goodly while for these thick walls to heat up again
Boy am I glad to be home:)
