A thoroughly damp morning this morning preceded by some thick fog.

I am sure the farmers are glad of the rain though, there has been precious little in this part of the UK for the last few weeks.

The Christmas shopping season has certainly commenced in Exeter, roads were gridlocked for much of Saturday, Sunday seemed busy as well. I have done my best to make full use of the web-ter-net to complete as many purchases as possible without having to wrestle with the horde of shoppers in town. No doubt I will be afflicted with the requirement of last minute emergency shopping in those days leading up to the 25th.

If you are looking for some quality wine for Christmas try this company Oliver and Bird. A first class service and fab wines.
