We woke up this morning to the promised snow, not as much as they have in Wales or Somerset, but a decent smattering. There is a light breeze blowing and it keeps snowing intermittently but really it is more like wet sleet. The road is clear, except for a lot of slush, so I can’t really say that in my days of having to get up and head off to work, it would have deterred me from going to work. Mum has just phoned and the snow has started there and Vee has it too, in fact they’ve closed Bristol airport airport!
Yesterday I went on a speed awareness course, 4 hours. I went out of self interest as I didn’t want the points on my licence but it turned out to be very interesting and if you didn’t have to pay £80 for the pleasure, I would recommend it to anyone.
I have spent most of this morning fiddling with my new MP3 player.
I had to switch to media player as I couldn’t transfer the songs at first, then it still didn’t work as the instructions described but I noticed a sync tab and that seems to have sorted it. Part of the problem is getting used to Windows 8. Anyway, that was the easy bit as the instructions just assume that you will know how many times to press a particular function button. I think I’ve got it now, and certainly it plays really well and although I was thinking of getting some new earphones for it, I don’t think I’ll bother, they are good enough.
