I've followed all these threads on all the gloom and doom of the current weather conditions. Then there's the BBC News with reporters from all the remote areas they could manage to reach. Newspapers with page after page of commuters in trouble, all so depressing.
Then I saw it, tucked away in one snow report by the Mail as though it was a throw away item. Yet, it has the potential of saying,"there's hope after all in all this chaos."
My heart leapt when reading, "there is a strong possibility of there being a shortage of brussel sprouts this year due to farmers being unable to harvest in the weather."
Mother Nature has at last heard me, I hate the damned things. Virtually force fed them by my mother then missus mashes them up and pretends it's spring cabbage. This year at least I may be spared.
Anyway, as any former dawn patrollers will know, it's too late to buy them now anyway. If they're not in the pan and boiling away by the end of April they're all but inedible by Christmas lunch time...
