The weather forecast for the first normal days of work in many days is for bright sunshine for most of the day around here so I'm going to do what I planned last time it was like this and go for the lorries at Middlewich, not quite as busy since the distribution centres shut but there are plenty still heading through this small Cheshire town on their way to the other centres and businesses in this busy catchment area of the M6 motorway. Of course it has the added advantage of being near home. I'm now looking at the likley situation Thursday driving down to Hampshire when it looks as if it will be sunny earlier and clouding later down in Oxfordshire, I'll keep my eye on things through. The water levels are rising in the south west now but thankfully Lancashire, Yorkshire and Cumbria have had some respite. I really must get thrashing into the bus coverage as soon as the new year festivities are out of the way.
Next Monday I'm hoping to cover either Birmingham, Leeds or Manchester. Don't forget that this coming year we shall be revisiting many of the English trams lines or systems in the case of Manchester and Nottingham. The tapes I've taken off the cine film need putting on Youtube and then loading for onward sale on EBay and the archives recording on my database. There are some very nice films coming up in this next batch including material on Belgium and the Netherlands, aircraft and ships as well as other travel features although there are always those that shine through. The orders for DVDs are still coming through on Amazon and EBay but our own shop is silent, please consider this your first port of call it is always the most up to date of the three. I've made a start on trimminmg upphoto files for fioling and loading to Smugmug, I did put a lot of new shots on earlier this week.
