Hello Big Wull
I will try that recipe for soup, need it at the moment.
My brother was snowed in up in Co. Durham, his teenage children could not go to school in the village from their farmhouse as the school was closed because of the snow. My brother walked the little one 1and a half miles to the village school and walked back in a blizzard. Down south things have not been bad, just snow flurries and not lying for very long. Just off to have some lunch.
Had hot porridge this morning, one of the delights I carry over from Scotland
