The indian summer ended with a dark and somewhat stormy night. Good radio listening weather my pretties.
And the growing chill in the mornings reminds us all that the ugg boots must be made ready for action.
And this week saw a new feature: Onceupona. “Tubby the Tuba” is the first in what I hope will be a series of tales old and new. Stand by for the arrival next month of “Steve Trenchley and the case of the missing Myki”!!
