Some random stuff...

I've finally seen Milton Keynes' famous Concrete Cows! They've been moved to the comparative shelter of one of the shopping centres, and we came across them entirely by chance - I was absolutely delighted!


A Sunday breakfast at a spanking new cafe - Wings, at North Weald Airfield. The breakfast was good...


and it came with a noisy side-order of Jet Provost, too!


Lots of traffic, and lots of fog. A combination of knackered traffic lights and the weather did mean I spotted this lovely tree lurking on a roundabout waiting to be photographed, though...


A trip to the Farm Shop during Supermarket Avoidance Week - and an entreaty...


Fog causing more problems in the air above us - apparently Stansted and Gatwick were both fine, but it looks like Heathrow was having some problems.


Meant I got to play with my favourite new phone App though - the excellent Flight Radar 24 - it was recommended by Carol Vorderman on Twitter as being utterly addictive and it really is!

And finally, possibly the nicest form of "rent payable" you'll ever see. Look...


...For those of challenged eyesight, I can confirm that it says that the rent for this property is "One red rose on midsummers day in each year" - and yes this was in a real, live lease, sitting on my desk in front of me!

How lovely. We get a bill each year for our ground rent. It's the princely sum of £2.75pa. It makes me laugh, when you factor in the cost of an envelope, stamp, paper and typing time to send it, it's actually not much at all. (Plus the envelope and stamp we use to send the cheque!)

I love the fact that they actually charge you it in spite of the fact that it probably costs them money to do so!

I absolutely love the photograph of the tree - it's stunning!
Happy Christmas Robyn and Mr E.H.
Have a wonderful time. x
