The rain has been endless again, so much so that the journey to get the kids from the station yesterday turned into a massive trek to the west (Okehampton) before heading east towards Exeter. All in all we had to travel in excess of 60 miles, there and back, in order to find a route that was open. The trains aren’t running past Taunton and Matt’s journey was further delayed by a fire somewhere near Reading. I think next year we will have Christmas somewhere warm! Its endlessly grey outside now but at least the rain has held off today to give us a breather before the next onslaught which is expected tonight.
The Christmas tree looks lovely but so far my attempts to photograph it well have been disappointing so I’ll wait until I can get a decent picture before I post it.
