Disaster Relief

Hope you all survived the storm.

West Sussex was horrendous, one chair in my pergola was leaning against the table and another had blown over all together.

You think that's bad? Here in Surrey my wheelie bin lid was literally blown open.
Of course, all trains to London are cancelled.

You think that's bad? I was smacked in the face by a leaf on my to the shops. If that had been a branch and I had been holding a baby whilst wearing roller boots we could have both ended up in A&E.

It was Armageddon this morning, a bin fell over in the garden.

All very funny but I saw a man in the depths of despair this morning because he couldn't get his cigarette to light.

It appears that senior BBC editors have now rushed Orla Guerin and Fergal Keane back to the UK to pull doleful, award-winning faces whilst interviewing some poor, distressed family whose fence has been damaged by the unrelenting force of Nature. O the humanity!
