I wanted to tell you about this site
We refuse to give to religious charities of any kind (believing that you should be helped regardless of race or religion) and so were pleased to find RD doing his bit. Money only goes to the Red Cross and Medecins sans Frontieres. Through dec.org.uk you can’t specify the charity (not that I could see).
Compared to Haiti the studio is nothing to deal with.
So far we are thawing at just the right speed (atm anyway, there’s still tonight and tomorrow to go). But the damage is everywhere, hearing of more farm sheds down, tarpaulin over a neighbours roof (and not the only one we’ve seen), lots of lost guttering.
Ian went to get a takeaway last night and it cost £165.55. Yes £165.55 – he hit a pothole and a new tyre cost £150. He saw lots of other cars parked up changing tyres too and reported it to the police – who already knew. Today it had a cone on top of it. Well that's fixed that then.
Today we managed a normal Sunday – with DS’s Art class in Rothbury and lunch for us whilst he was there. Good to get out. Lots of guttering strewn around, very dirty snow, lots of water on the road and some more lethal potholes.
Everyone, even DS, is glad to see the snow going at last.
