Two Monkeys and no nuts.

Today was shall we say a bit on the cold side.

Tom helped me today as he does the majority of Saturdays.

It was quiet, we had flurries of snow, sleet and a bit of rain, the temperature hovered just above zero.

You just know it’s an exciting day when the highlight of it is the civils coming in to eat their lunch. Mind you they were quite tame and one of them got apparent pleasure from slowly eating a banana.

Because it was cold Tom cranked open his wallet and kindly bought us both fish and chips, they were most welcome and helped keep us warm.

Had a couple of photographers on the platform who thought it was fine to move stuff round for what I presume they thought was an artistic photograph, I think my look conveyed my displeasure. Recently photographers have been neck and neck with dog walkers for the title of rudest none spending visitor. All we need is a dog walker with a camera and they would get first prize with very little effort.

Not opening tomorrow (Sunday) the weather forecast is worse than today and being at the station in the cold is no enjoyment, especially when the visitors stay away. The car park was almost empty when we left.

Oh well it will soon be spring and the rain will show signs of getting warmer.
