Meeting Mrs C. from work this evening with the hound frantically dragging me along whilst she carried her precious* was a precarious task this evening. Ice and more ice with added black ice for flavour. It's alright for the hound who has four legs and a low centre of gravity and to whom dignity is a brand name of dog food. I skidded and slipped in her wake as she investigated every piece of olfactory news along our route. We collected Mrs C. and escorted her home (she doesn't like the combination of dark nights and chavs) as we surveyed the empty centre of the thriving metropolis.

A night to stay in, keep warm and a mug of hot chocolate as I listen to 'The Hound of the Baskervilles' on BBCi. I'm a keen Holmes fan with books, tapes, DVD's, etc...including my going to see Jeremy Brett play Holmes on the stage years ago. If I was to appear on Desert Island Discs I would nominate the collected Sherlock Holmes works as my book. I never tire of reading them. Anyhow, the game's afoot...

* Her current precious is a piece of rotten driftwood she found on the beach.

Indeed, a night to stay home and keep warm - and I believe it's only going to get worse.

Take care.
