What a week its been!
First of all, on Monday afternoon, a contractor working in Banbury,
managed to dig through the main gas pipeline which supplies gas
to Byfield where Penny and Greg live. So, from then until Thursday
night we had no gas. That means, no heating, no hot water, no way
to cook dinner except for in the microwave. Gosh! It was freezing!
It was so cold that Penny and Greg let me sleep in their bed with
them - you can see me in the photograph all tucked up ready to go
You can read all about
the incident at the local newspaper web site but it will probably
only be there for a few days. The web site is at http://www.banburyguardian.co.uk

pipeline feeding all the villages and houses along the way from
Banbury to a village just up the road from here called Woodford
Halse. I'll bet you can't find out how far that is - from Banbury
to Woodford Halse. There are lots of web sites where you can get
directions to go from one place to another but one that I like is:
See if you can work it
Talk to you again next
