Since we arrived here in the UK we have seen no more than one hour of weak sunshine. The rest of the time it has been overcast and worse still raining.
The trip over from here to Cawthorne via Holmfirth has been particularly depressing. The moors are bleak at the best of times but when the weather is so foul they are awful. Holmfirth was very pretty when it was decorated for Christmas but has now reverted to being just a drab northern town.
Having spoken to our next door neighbor in Spain it seems that the weather there has been very pleasant.
PS Hopefully the weather will be kinder tomorrow for my Father's funeral.
