Most likely down to my return journey, over the weekend I acquired a cold. I hope the worst is over now; although I was working between Christmas and New Year, I didn't have to go in to the office, but I really feel I should make the effort tomorrow. Neither austerity nor weather prevented an abundance of fireworks in these parts around midnight. I don't mind so long as they don't go on too long.
Today has been mostly sunny with largely unbroken blue sky. The forecast says it won't last.
