UK readers, please note the total and utter lack of a gloves, hat or winter coat. Note, also the strange glow otherwise known as ‘sunshine’.

After a quick jaunt around the streets, it was back to the hotel for a freshen up. Then straight back out to meet…

No. Let’s save that for another blog post.

    How on earth did you get knitting needles onto the plane?
