Back in Blighty

The skies are overcast, there's rain about and the wind's getting up a bit, so we must be back in England. It's a sharp contrast to the (mostly) glorious weather that we've been having during our summer hols over in Norway and Denmark.

There's plenty to blog about, so I'll have to split the report into sections to be posted over the next few days. You might have to wait for the pics though - I've got 831 of them to sort out. Here's one of them to tide you over, just in case you've forgotten what a clear sky is:

    Have a look at - there's a bit there about non-WP uses, maybe it could be adapted for use with Blogger... or maybe you could export your blog to WP 🙂
