I have exciting news.
FREE I tell you!!!
It has rained overnight and miraculously, much of the snow which has held us hostage for the past 9 days has disappeared.
We can actually SEE the road. And cars are actually DRIVING on it, as opposed to slipping sideways.
This means that we can get out to Tesco and avoid having to eat the manky stuff still lurking right at the back of the freezer/cupboards.
Edit - a refuse lorry has just driven up the road. Civilisation returns at last.......
