We’re flying to Glasgow later for a few days, so I won’t be about for several days. We are flying with BA and this turns out to be a good thing given that, as there was the threat of strike action, they have given us 10,000 extra air miles to say thank you for flying with them. I already have my miles, G is still waiting but will hopefully get them after we have flown.

We are going to meet G’s new niece. She is two weeks old today. This is assuming we can land in Glasgow, as fog is expected tonight.

Christmas Day was nice. I got a Freeview Plus box, which has been put to good use already, and a new microwave.

The Day of the Triffids is on TV tomorrow and Tuesday night (BBC 1, 9pm). That is such a fantastic book and so hopefully the programme will be good too. If it is good then hopefully that will inspire you to read the book if you haven’t done so already. If it is rubbish then the book is much better and you need to read to read the book to undo the damage. Are you picking up on a message here?

Anyway... I will return here are sometime around the turn of the New Year. I hope you have a good few days.

I hope you had a good trip to Glasgow :-) And hope you have a very happy New Year.

I hope you have had a great Hogmenay (or however you spell it!)

I am expecting photo's.....

Happy New Year, Random! Hope you had a great Christmas and that you have travelled back from Scotland safely. Looking forward to hearing what you thought about the Triffid adaptation?

Rebecca - It was very nice, but also very snowy. I am glad we had a car or else we would have been rather stuck. I hope you had a good New Year.

Kahless - it was good, but being a lightweight, it was actually in London. I did get G a digital camera for Christmas by the way. I don't think there are any photos for posting though, most are of G's new niece!

Sarah - Happy New Year to you too. Christmas was good, as was Glasgow.

I have only watched the first half of the Triffids adaptation so far. I have enjoyed it, although I can see where it has strayed from the original in places. I'll see what I think when I have watched the second half.
